Head Teacher's Welcome
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Plaistow Primary School and Children’s Centre.
Plaistow is a successful, two-form entry school in the heart of a diverse, multicultural neighbourhood. We are within walking distance of thriving local markets,
libraries and parks, and only a stone’s throw away from London’s world-famous museums, galleries and landmarks.
Plaistow is a dynamic learning community filled with laughter, friendship and high expectations for all. At our school we work hard, challenge and believe in ourselves in order to learn, progress and achieve. We want our children to experience joy on their own unique learning journey in order for them to become creative, aspirational lifelong learners.
'Every single child is expected to try their best and believe in themselves. As parents we know that's how our children achieve their full potential. Plaistow knows that too...' – Parent
Our school curriculum drivers are: joy, creativity and aspiration. These values underpin the curriculum, inform our decision making, and guide the way we interact with one another.
Our ambitious, thematic curriculum is rooted in quality texts which foster a love of reading and inspire a curiosity to learn more. Purposeful experiences across the wider curriculum enrich children’s vocabulary and put learning in Reading, Writing and Maths into context. As a result, pupils make rapid progress and achieve across all subject areas. Plaistow is a creative school and children have an opportunity to express themselves through art, music and drama.
At Plaistow, we encourage the interests, talents and dreams of each individual child. We have a commitment to nurturing pupils’ social, emotional and physical health in order to equip them with the skills and attributes they will need for future success.
I hope that our website gives you a window into our happy and continuously improving school. Any one of our team would welcome the opportunity to show you around Plaistow or answer any questions you may have.
We look forward to meeting you soon.
Mr Dean Benoit
