Welcome to Sherington’s website.
Sherington is a larger than average, ethnically and economically diverse two form entry primary school with a nursery and Children’s Centre. We pride ourselves on our high achievement and inclusive community.
We are situated close to Blackheath and Maritime Greenwich, a World Heritage Site. Our tailor-made curriculum provides opportunities for pupils to learn about their world by drawing on local history and through real life experiences. Curriculum strengths in ICT, music and the arts provide enriching experiences through which every child can aspire to become a lifelong learner.
Our vision statement underpins all that we do.
‘Sherington Primary School and Children’s Centre is an inclusive community. We place the child at the centre of all that we do. We strive to maintain the highest standard in an environment that is creative, stimulating, inspiring and enabling.’
We have a very close relationship with our community and always listen to the views and desires of children and parents in order to improve and enhance all that we do. Year 6 pupils were recently asked what might be done to improve things for pupils in the future. One boy responded, ‘ I love this school too much to change it.’ Sherington really is an exciting and truly amazing place in which to learn. In addition, in a recent year 6 exit questionnaire: 100% of pupils enjoyed coming to school, 100% of pupils felt they achieved success and 100% of pupils now see themselves as ‘lifelong learners’.
We are always delighted to share our ethos and practice with visitors. Please don’t hesitate to contact the school office to arrange a tour. We look forward to welcoming you.
