Secondary Transfer

If your child is currently in our Year 6 you need to make an application for Secondary School in September 2022.

This application must be made online by 31st October 2021.

We recognise that this sometimes a period of worry for many parents and children if you missed our  Secondary Transfer information zoom meeting for all Year 6 parents on Tuesday 21st September you can find details of how to make your application in the documents which are attached to this article.

This is a very important year for your child and it is vital that you try to attend as we will be giving you information about the secondary transfer process and other general information about what your child will be doing in Year 6.

To assist you with your application, please find links to the Secondary School brochures for Lewisham, Greenwich and Southwark – as our school sits on the edge of all 3 boroughs you may wish to consider a secondary school in any (or all) these boroughs.  There is also instructions on how to make your application and details of the open days for Lewisham Schools.

You will be able to express up to 6 preferences across a number of LA’s on a common form which can be accessed online.  Each admission authority will consider applications separately.  Your child will be considered under the admissions criteria published by each school or LA.  The sharing of information through a central computer system will ensure that only the highest preference school available is offered.  Offers will be made on 1st March 2022.  

 

If you have any queries or are having problems with your application, please call the school office and ask for Clare, alternatively e-mail your query to info@deptfordpark.lewisham.sch.uk and we will assist you.

Online Safety

During this time, children will be spending more time online, using platforms like YouTube. Please take a look at the online safety tips from the NCPCC here: https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/talking-child-online-safety/

Remember, you can put parental controls on your children’s devices, so that they can’t access inappropriate content. Make sure they know to talk to you if anything they don’t like happens. The internet is a wonderful place, as long as you stay safe!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

Deptford Park Statement on Black Lives Matter

Lewisham Leaders stand together to condemn the unlawful murder of an innocent black man, George Floyd in Minneapolis and sadly those other unlawful deaths in America that have followed after, due to racism.

We stand united in our commitment to tackle and challenge racism, address inequality and call out discrimination.

As educators of a school population which is made up of a significant numbers of children and families from Black and ethnic minority communities, we cannot remain silent.

The murder of George Floyd must prompt careful reflection about racism in Britain today, and the extent to which it shapes our values, politics and economic life.  We all have a duty to address systemic racism in our society and uphold this in our united condemnation of the unlawful murder of an innocent black man, George Floyd.

Deptford Park Primary School is a warm and welcoming place for everyone.  Our core values include kindness, integrity and respect – these are at the heart of all we do.  We are always here for you, regardless of your race, sexuality, gender, religion or anything else which makes you, you.

Today and every other day, all of us at Deptford Park stand as one in the belief that racism is an abhorrence that we reject.  Our community needs and deserves to feel safe in the belief that we condemn all acts of racism and violence.

#BlackLivesMatter
