Welcome to our school!
Welcome to Deptford Park Primary School’s website. Our school is situated in the Evelyn ward within Lewisham. We are a three-form entry community primary school and admit children from three to eleven years old. Our primary school is at the heart of the community and we seek to create strong links with all members of our locality. We celebrate the rich diversity of our community and encourage children to respect each other’s cultures, faiths and traditions. We work in partnership with our parents and we will encourage you to be fully involved in your child’s education. We value parental involvement and our community is important to our school.
Our school aims for high academic standards for all, but at the same time embodies the broadest possible definition of education. At this school every child does matter and we do all we can to make a difference. At Deptford Park we believe learning should be fun and that you never grow too old for new learning. We are committed to preparing our young people for life and the challenges they may meet. The school’s focus is firmly fixed on learning; children’s, teachers’, support staff and the school’s capacity for continual development. We have found that this leads to improvements in children’s motivation, behaviour, engagement and learning outcomes.
We are always working towards these aims, encapsulating them in the concept of Deptford Park School – the world in our school.
A pupil new to our school in Year 6 and also new to our country made this leaving speech “the sound of Deptford Park Primary School sent fear through my body the first time I heard I was going there. Beauty, warmth, smiling faces greeted me with comfort and acceptance and I never stopped smiling. I knew I had come to the right place where I would shine bright like the sun. Deptford Park Primary School a place where stars are made.”
We believe our school is special and helps to promote a sense of belonging and pride in our children and their families. We welcome you to our school to see for yourself how our children, parents, staff and governors are learning and working together.
We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find any information you may be looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.
