Established in 1815 to educate the children of the local area, Kentish Town Church of England Primary School is an Outstanding one from entry primary and nursery school. We believe that each of our children is unique and our aim is for each of them to achieve their full potential. Our work is guided by the spiritual values of: Hope, Equality and Love.
Our school serves its local community; we value and embrace this diversity. Our school is also highly inclusive, having additional resource bases for the inclusion of 6 children with physical disabilities and 15 children with autism. OFSTED described our provision for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities as “exceptional” in December 2017.
With just one class in each year group, children are known individually and we strive to work in close partnership with parents and carers; we have an open door policy whereby we welcome parents into the school each morning and afternoon.
We are proud to hold the Gold UNICEF Rights Respecting School Award, placing our children’s views at the centre of what we do. Our aim is for their learning experiences to always be fun, challenging and positive as well as being enriched by the many trips and visits that we are able to provide. We passionately believe that by living in London, our children should take full advantage of everything it can offer them: opportunities in sport, art and music, as well as academic excellence.
As a partner in the Camden Primary Teaching School Alliance, we are committed to training and developing our staff to the highest levels. We are often asked to train and develop staff from other schools through this alliance and by Camden Local Authority, Challenge Partners Network of Excellence and the Diocese of London. There is a commitment to the pursuit of excellence at all levels within our school.
Our school is a happy place, where every member of staff does their best for our children. Staff stability supports the very positive relationships that exist within and between the whole school community.
We very much hope that should you apply and join our community that your child/ren will be happy in our school.
