Welcome to St John's Angell Town Primary School
Learning to make the world a better place through Faith, Hope and Love.
St John’s Angell Town C of E Primary School provides a happy, secure and stimulating learning environment where Christian values are embraced by all. We are a one form entry, inner city school situated in Brixton, Lambeth. There is a nursery that offers both full time and part time places. We offer excellent pastoral care to our children, and our creative curriculum coupled with our strong sense of community ensures that we are a happy, forward-thinking and successful school.
Our mission statement says that we aim to achieve this through:
- Reflecting the teachings of Jesus Christ in our daily lives
- Providing a warm and welcoming environment for our school and the wider community
- Fostering a lasting love of learning
- Encouraging and celebrating achievement
- Expecting the highest standards of work and behaviour
- Effective teaching which develop independence and inspires creativity in a broad and balanced curriculum
- Addressing individual needs and diversity within an inclusive ethos.
Christian values and high expectations are at the heart of all aspects of our school life. Staff strive to deliver stimulating, fun, engaging and challenging daily learning experiences for our children through the National and International Primary Curriculum.
Our pupils thrive here and we aim to inspire them to become independent, resilient, lifelong learners, whilst working together in partnership with parents, carers, the Church and the wider community.
The school has been graded ‘outstanding’ following our most recent SIAMS inspection. We hold an Inclusion Quality Mark, and the school is now a Centre of Excellence for Inclusion. We are currently engaging in the UNICEF Rights Respecting Schools programme and working towards the Silver Award.
The school is now flourishing with a dynamic, energetic, enthusiastic and creative team of staff.
Working in partnership
In October 2018, St John’s Angell Town started to work together in partnership with two high performing, local, church schools - Christ Church C of E Primary School and St. Luke’s C of E Primary School.
The partnership is a formal arrangement where the schools come together to maximise funding, resources and expertise. All three schools work together but retain their own Governing Bodies, budget allocations, individual admissions, performance tables and Ofsted inspections.
A decision was taken in April 2018 to extend the partnership agreement with the other two schools due to the resignation of the Headteacher. This will remain in place until at least August 2019 and will be regularly reviewed.
Staff from all three schools have already benefited from sharing best practice, shared training opportunities and support.
Mrs Zeronian-Dalley is strategically responsible for all three schools until this time, as Executive Headteacher and is supported by Heads of School from both Christ Church and St. Luke’s. The Senior Leaders from the three schools continue to work together.
Working together brings the opportunity for strong, strategic leadership and to work in different ways to ensure the highest quality teaching and learning for children in our schools. Collaboration between the schools is mutually beneficial to pupils, parents and staff on all sites. Staff from all three schools have already benefited from sharing best practice, shared training opportunities and support. Pupils from all three schools have benefited already too, through extended and enriched curriculum opportunities.
