Pupils do exceptionally well at this school, in terms of both their academic and personal development.

Leaders, including governors, are relentless in their ambition to make this school the best it can be.

The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. Pupils have excellent attitudes to learning. They work hard at all times and persevere with tasks that are frequently challenging.

The warm, mutually supportive relationships that staff and pupils have with each other make this a very caring, nurturing school.

Provision in the Early Years is outstanding. Children make rapid and sustained progress due to excellent teaching and imaginative activities.

The curriculum is excellent. It promotes a real love for learning in pupils, as they have many opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills within a real-life context.

House teams

All children from Reception Class to Yr 6 are allocated to a House at Merton Park.  There are four Houses (Red, Blue, Green and Yellow) and each has a Yr 6 House Captain, who is voted for by the Year 6 class at the start of the school year.

The House Captain helps to organise the weekly ‘Star of the Week’ Assembly, when a child from each class is selected as the class star.  At this assembly they announce which House has won the House Point trophy for that week.

The children are put into their teams for in-school competitions, including Sports Day at the end of the summer term.
