A very warm welcome to you all for visiting our website. I do hope that you find it easy to gather information and gain an insight into our wonderful school. Our biggest asset is our children, who come in daily, smiling, motivated and proud to belong to our school community. Our parents support us in all that we do and contribute enormously in many different ways to the successes that we have achieved.
The Governing Body has a wide range of skills and both supports and challenges the school to provide value to the lives of our children, not only in achieving academic success, but also in sports and the Arts. As for the staff team, I have never worked with more committed and passionate professionals, who place the children at the heart of all that we do.
Values too are at the core of our daily work with ‘Respect’ having a key emphasis. We are all known by our first names and have worked tirelessly at breaking down barriers between the different partners. We want our children to be resilient, resourceful, risk takers and respectful to all. Enjoy your journey through the different items.

National Anti-Bullying Week
15th November to 19h November 2021
Cranbrook Primary is celebrating Anti– Bullying Week in a positive way, with this year’s theme being ‘ One Kind Word’. On Monday 15th November 2021 children were asked to wear odd socks to school Odd Socks Day! There was no pressure to wear the latest fashion or buy expensive costumes. All they needed to do to take part is to wear odd socks, it could not be simpler! There is a parent pack that you can access here. You will find information on bullying, ideas for conversations and activities to complete with the children. At school children will attend an assembly and have lessons in class. We welcome your support in addressing a very important aspect around our children’s safety and well-being. What is bullying? The Anti-bullying Alliance defines bullying as the repetitive, intentional hurting of one person or group by another person or group, where the relationship involves an imbalance of power.
We now have a set of litter picks from Redbridge Council, 200 tulip and daffodil bulbs, and we are expecting 140 tree saplings in early November! In the next few weeks, we will need to do plenty of work to clear, dig, plant around the school.
Pupils will be involved with the planting of the bulbs and trees and we are hoping to organise some litter picking sessions on the field and the playground. If you would like to volunteer some time to help with any of these upcoming projects, please leave your details at office and we will get back to you.
