Headteacher Welcome Message
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.
Our Children Today, Our Future Tomorrow
This is an exciting, thriving, innovative, large, culturally diverse community school within the London Borough of Redbridge in Essex.
We opened with 4 classes in September 2007, and have expanded at a fast rate. We have 28 classes across the school and a large nursery with pupils between the ages of 3-11 years.
Currently there are waiting lists in most year groups, as the school's reputation within the local area goes from strength to strength.
The fun, energetic and hard working staff team takes pride in its work, which is shared by our well behaved pupils, active parents and committed governors.
The majority of our pupils will move to Valentines High School when they leave us in Year 6.
Aims & Values
We, the adults and children at Cranbrook Primary School, embrace every member of our community and their race, ethnicity, faith, gender, culture, physical and mental ability, beliefs and sexual orientation.We strongly believe that every single person, child and adult, deserves to be treated equally and fairly, and is entitled to equal access.
We recognise that all our school members contribute to the life of our school in a unique way bringing varying life experiences, beliefs and cultures. Every person has something valuable to contribute to the learning culture of our diverse community. We value and learn from all our cultures, faiths and beliefs, ensuring that everyone is treated with dignity and respect. We believe that these underpinning principles will uphold the Cranbrook values of:
Respect Excellence Equality Friendship Courage Determination Inspiration
We expect everyone coming to Cranbrook Primary School to uphold these values and we will challenge any individual or group who does not support this ethos. If we fully encompass the diversity of Cranbrook Primary School, our children today will develop a broad outlook on life which will impact positively on their future tomorrow.
