Learning that anything is possible

South Rise Primary School aims to be an outstanding, values-based school at the heart of our culturally diverse community. Through innovative practice we strive for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential. We aspire to develop great thinkers who demonstrate curiosity, resilience and embrace challenge. We aim to develop confident, independent individuals who are fully prepared for life in modern Britain.

South Rise Primary School is a values based learning community, committed to the education of the whole child. We are always seeking new and creative ways of engaging children in learning experiences that motivate and entice them to deepen their understanding and develop a lifelong love of learning. We provide a broad and balanced knowledge based curriculum with creative contexts providing the stimulus to engage children in quality experiences. We strive to achieve high academic standards for all children and believe this is best achieved through teaching that is engaging, innovative and personalised to children’s needs.

We are committed to children valuing learning both in and out of school, providing an extensive annual programme of educational visits and residential school journeys.  We have a very close relationship with our community and always listen to the views and desires of children and parents so that we can keep improving and enhancing all that we do. Our Pastoral Team provide a range of opportunities for parents to become involved with the school through coffee mornings, Stay and Play Sessions, Personal Development Classes and much more. We survey parents annually to gain their views and ideas for developments and consult with pupils regularly to ensure they have a central voice in school self-evaluation.

We are part of The Compass Partnership of Schools, which converted to multi academy trust status in July 2017. We are an innovative and forward-thinking group of 11 schools based in Greenwich and Essex. The Partnership offers immense opportunities to develop the quality of provision, sharing of good practice and professional growth.
