George Tomlinson Primary is a three form entry community school set in the heart of Leytonstone, a stone’s throw away from the tube and with easy access into the heart of London on the central line. Our recently extended school site is modern, clean and bright with an outstanding EYFS facility including large outdoor space and resources.
At George Tomlinson we believe that all children deserve outstanding quality first teaching that is supported by excellent curricular opportunities and extended services that nurture and engage children. We want to inspire brilliance in a stable and safe environment through creative practice. We want our pupils to feel that when it comes to aspirations the sky is the limit and to prepare them fully for life at secondary school and beyond. We believe in achieving Excellence through Enjoyment.
This is an extremely exciting time for the school in a period of rapid improvement with a new substantive Headteacher and Senior Leadership Team, supported by an experienced Governing Body and staff who are passionate about the development of the school. We are developing an engaging and challenging curriculum that will drive the progress of every single child through Read, Write, Inc Phonics for teaching reading, an outstanding Guided Reading programme called Destination Reader, Singapore inspired Maths programme called Inspire Maths and Philosophy 4 Children. We highly prize the creative arts, with instrumental music tuition of guitar, recorder and trumpet taught in KS2 as well as a music teacher working across the school. We value modern foreign languages with French taught from Reception to Year 6. We are high achievers when it comes to Sport and our children are given many opportunities to succeed in a range of sports and dance delivered by two sports coaches who passionately believe in all children accessing and enjoying an active day at George Tomlinson. Every class from Year 1 to 6 also completes the Daily Mile. We are passionate about becoming a Healthy School and one where pupil voice is prominent so that children have a say in their own education. Pupil led assemblies, school council and community work groups will all enable the empowerment of our pupils and higher engagement in their learning. We believe in the importance of children’s well-being and happiness as much as their academic successes and we work on our Growth Mind-set across the school as well as delivering Mindfulness lessons.
We are lucky enough to have our own science garden on site with a mini beast motel, a pond and beds for growing our own vegetables! We have sole use of a field a three minute walk from our school site and our resident animals; guinea pigs and rabbits are kept in our classrooms.
We love our multi-cultural community, where all religions and nationalities are represented and celebrated, and we would love to meet you!
