Why Choose Our School For Your Child?
For local parents in Sheen, Mortlake and Barnes choosing a primary school can be somewhat mystifying. Which one of several excellent schools should they choose for their child? Having worked at this school for over twenty years I can honestly tell you that your children will get an excellent education at any of your local schools, so why would we recommend our school to you? What makes us different?
Ofsted have graded us as ‘Outstanding’, we are very highly thought of by our local community and the Local Authority, and we consistently enable all of our pupils, regardless of their ability, to make outstanding progress. It is often difficult for prospective parents to fully understand the varied information and statistics provided for them about their local schools. Certainly, League Tables mean very little given that your local schools all achieve very highly year-on-year. If one looks into year-on-year data, one realises that although any school may be in poll position in any year, the actual difference in data-led achievement between the schools is in reality very small. The significant fact is that the schools in this area are all achieving at the highest level against both local and national benchmarks.
So what is particularly significant about East Sheen Primary School? Our ethos is centred on the value of each individual child and our whole community. We pride ourselves on the knowledge that we achieve our results without ‘hot housing’ our pupils. We highly value sport and the arts and our curriculum reflects this. Our Year 6 pupils do not spend the first half of the year simply preparing for SATs assessments. They, like all our year groups, enjoy a programme of stimulating, exciting and challenging learning experiences carefully differentiated to meet the needs of all our valued pupils.
We are special simply because we are a very happy, fun-filled and exciting school, a wonderful place to learn and work. We are a friendly community who work in partnership together to give our children the very best well-rounded education: truly outstanding.

With every best wish for the future education of your children
