Head Teacher's Welcome
It is my pleasure and privilege to welcome you as you visit the Epsom Downs Primary School and Children’s Centre website. We are a very unique educational establishment with a Day Nursery (which offers childcare provision for babies from 6 months); BASH club (Breakfast, After school and Holiday Club); Family Centre; two classes from Nursery up to year 6; a farm; bio globe; nature world and sports field with pavilion. Please take your time to walk through our website and find out more about the entire provision we offer. I hope you will get a feeling of the wonderful learning environment we will provide for your child and I trust that you find the information both useful and informative.
At Epsom downs our motto is: The best start in life for your child... We believe that we are a unique school, catering for children from 0-11 years of age, during which time we really get to know all of our children and help them on their individual learning journeys. To achieve the best start we aim to support each child to achieve more than they ever thought was possible and to develop strong, supportive and respectful relationships with each other and the adults they work with. We have high expectations of all children and provide them with the challenge, opportunities and support for them to flourish. Through an engaging, creative curriculum that links knowledge, skills and outdoor learning opportunities, children are given the chance to further develop their self-esteem, problem solving and collaboration skills through hands-on learning in a natural environment.
We have a strong, dedicated team, who are passionate about ensuring the best start in life for all children. The senior leadership team drive the school in a cohesive direction, a member of this team is on the playground every morning as a point of contact for parents. Within this team we have phase leaders across the school who ensure consistency and high expectations across each key stage. Every teacher, teaching assistant and member of the admin and premises team, act as role models in order for children to achieve the highest standards.
We strive to work closely with parents as we know it is when school and home life combine that children achieve their very best. We hold many events and sessions throughout the year where parents are invited into school. Keep a look out on the diary dates and newsletter for these events.
Thank you for visiting our website. To find out more about us and our intentions and strategies contact the office to arrange a tour or during the COVID pandemic – a discussion with myself.
