Head Teacher's Welcome

A very warm welcome to Sunnyhill Primary School!  We are a two-form entry school with attached children’s centre and we have a nursery with both full- and part-time places.  We serve the heart of Streatham, offering an inclusive and broad education to all of our children.  Sunnyhill is known for its strong community ethos and enjoys a very stable and experienced staff team, who know the locality and celebrate its diversity every day.

We have a strong set of values driving our work with all members of our community!

- we respect each other

- every individual matters

- we take responsibility

- we strive for excellence

- we encourage all to try our best at all times

You will see these values in practice every day in school life.

Sunnyhill is rated ‘Good’ by Ofsted and our children achieve excellent rates of progress; in 2018, we were in the top 10% of schools for Reading and Writing progress and the top 25% for Maths progress.  Children from all backgrounds and ability ranges do very well indeed!

Teaching is creative, locality-based but outward-looking – you will see evidence of the learning everywhere in school and through how confident our children are. We are not complacent and seek opportunities to improve and discover. Our children are are explicitly taught to lead, both as individuals and in collaboration with others.

We look forward to meeting prospective parents/carers for our 2020/21 intake later this term, and are very excited to welcome our new Reception children, as they begin their learning journey with us!  As the new head teacher of Sunnyhill, I am excited to see the next stage in the growth and development of our school in collaboration with parents/carers, children and the wider community.

 

Best wishes,

Sarah Wilson
