    Eddie the Penguin Saves Lives

    Eddie The Penguin is on a mission to save the planet from pollution!

    Year 1 & Year 2 have been practicing so hard. Remembering lines, action and songs it’s been an exciting time! They definitely pulled off a play to remember!

    Mrs Chiverrell said it was a performance that many of the children and parents would never forget! Reminding the parents that some of these children are as young as 5, Mrs Chiverrell went onto add that who knows, some might end up on the stage!

    Well done Year 1 & 2!

    U11 Football Tournament

    A huge well-done to our football team that went to the U11  Tournament this week. This year the boys have been working hard on their ability to work as a team. Harris said, “Our chemistry is pretty good, by the end we were ultimate! We started off shaky but finished really well”

    Most of the boys admitted to being very nervous to start but all had a really enjoyable time!

    Isa said, “we tried our best and played well as a team, that’s what counts!”

    Vahin saved the day with his final goal which left the team jumping for joy! A great effort from the boys – thanks went to Mr & Mr Foster for their help on the day!

    Mini Concert – March 2018

    Our mini concert featuring just a few ex pupils, friends, present pupils and ‘The Senior Choir’ was enjoyed by all.

    It was arranged as a tribute to the life of Mrs Sheila Ferrari, Principal of Avon House School & Founder of the Dyslexic Centre in Woodford.  Mrs Ferrari passed away last August.

    Mrs Chiverrell said that Mrs Ferrari had dedicated her life to inspiring children and teachers in this area, often arranging special inter-school creative events.  She had been her mentor from the mid 1980’s as well as her friend.

    We hope to repeat this type of event in the future. Our children and the audience were inspired by the various items.

    A big thank you went to all the music staff involved in staging the event.

  • General Open Day | 07.03.18 | 10:00 – 11:30am

    Open Days are a fantastic opportunity to really see a school in action! And although everyone will be on their best behaviour, seeing a school at work – the relationships between children and staff; the layout and presentation of a school; the impression the people within it give off; the way in which the children are being taught, will speak volumes.


    Humans can’t help but trust their gut instincts, and a sure way to decide if something is right for you (and your child!), is to experience it. We’d love for you to join us at our next General Open Day which will be held on Wednesday 7th March between 10:00 – 11:30am (no appointment necessary).  You will have a Year 6 tour guide who will personally show you around the school, giving you expert advice (and opinions) along the way! Throughout your visit, you’ll have a chance to see subject lessons in action, ask staff and children any questions you may have, get a flavour for our teaching style and take in the ambience of our lovely little school!


    If you’re an Open Day novice, here are ten tips for getting the most from an open day:

    1. Take your child with you – you need a child’s eye view as well as your own, and they’ll notice things you miss.
    2. Think about whether you find the open day chaotic, friendly, efficient or improvised? The organisation of the day’s events can give many clues to the general running of a school.
    3. Pay attention to the pupils themselves – do they seem happy and motivated? Do they speak positively about their teachers and school-life?– Pupils are the best ambassadors for any school.
    4. Don’t make decisions based on individual teachers – they may have left by the time your child starts school.
    5. Don’t get too bogged down in the details – try to get a ‘feel’ for the school atmosphere. Write down your first impressions.
    6. Feel free to ask questions if you want to, particularly of pupils – what do they think of the teaching – do they enjoy life at the school?
    7. Look at the work on display. Does it represent a broad range of ability? A school should value every child.
    8. Does the school offer extra-curricular activities – such as sports and clubs – so your child can develop their interests? This also shows that the teachers are motivated and enthusiastic.
    9. Find out about the lunch arrangements – are there healthy school meals available and what do they cost? What are the other options, eg packed lunch?
    10. Most importantly, listen to your instincts.


    If you’re joining us, please drop in any time between 10 and 11:30am on Wednesday 7th March. There is parking in the local streets, but you will need to pay and display. If you have any questions prior to your visit, please drop us a message at or call us on 0208 989 2394.


    We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Netball & Football Club

    The girls in the netball club and boys in the football squad have had the opportunity to play a few friendly matches against Riverley Primary School the past few weeks.
    “It has been an absolute pleasure to watch our children exceed and push themselves while facing really tough competitors. Our children were real ambassadors for our school and it was a privilege to host Riverley at our school.” – Miss Fourie.
