Old Ford Primary School
Every child is entitled to a good education, with equal access to knowledge, skills, opportunities, aspirations, life chances and dignity. Your child deserves the best from this school and we seek to provide this in many ways, the most important of which are a well-planned and well-taught curriculum, in an environment where the safety and well-being of our pupils is paramount. However, teachers and school staff cannot do this on their own. When a school community works on this together excellent results can be achieved. This includes parents and/or carers supporting their children at home by encouraging learning, good conduct and high expectations. With this community effort, you can see your children reach their full potential.
Old Ford Primary School has been designated as a National Teaching School. Being a National Teaching School provides the impetus, co-ordination and focus that are critical to achieving excellence through learning from and working with others. We will be able to draw on the very best practice the education system has to offer and ensure that each and every child benefits from its influence. This also means providing our pupils with excellent educational experiences, as well as for thousands of children across the country.
