We believe that children get the most from their education when there's a strong partnership between home and school, and we hope that you will work with us to make sure that your child gets the most from being at Windrush.
The aim of this website is to provide all visitors with general information about our school. We pride ourselves at Windrush in being an inclusive school that will develop every aspect of your child. We believe that we need to prepare children to face the demands of life in the 21st century so that they can face the challenges ahead in being a well- rounded member of society. Happiness is a value we hold dear at our school as we strongly believe that happy children learn and perform to a higher standard in all areas of their lives.
In September 2012 Windrush School expanded opening a second school site in Charlton. Our Thamesmead site is 1 form of entry and Charlton 3, which makes us now, 4 forms of entry. When we opened our site in Charlton we took in 90 Reception children and each year 90 new pupils will join the school. Although split across two sites both schools hold dear the values and very high expectations we have for all off our pupils.
In July 2013 we were visited by Ofsted who rated our school as "outstanding"- a rating we have now held since 2007. We were extremely proud of our success as the new Ofsted framework is even more rigorous and demanding than on previous inspections.
We welcome visitors to both Thamesmead and Charlton School throughout the year. If this site gives you a taste and you would like to find out more please call either of the school offices on 0208 3100157 – Thamesmead- and 0208 8369710 for the Charlton site, I look forward to meeting you.
With warmest wishes,
Jo Marchant ( Executive Headteacher)
