Welcome to Eliot Bank Primary School

Eliot Bank Primary School is part of the Eliot Bank and Gordonbrock Schools Federation

On behalf of the children, staff and governors, welcome to the website of Eliot Bank: a happy and vibrant primary school on the border of Forest Hill and Sydenham in south-east London. We are a dedicated team of professionals, committed to providing a safe, secure and supportive environment where our children thrive. Promoting qualities such as resilience, aspiration, imagination, confidence and collaboration is at the heart of our vision. Our rich and deep curriculum provides many exciting opportunities both in and beyond the classroom. Quality teaching, high standards of behaviour and strong partnerships with parents are key features of Eliot Bank as they help provide a platform for children to fulfil their potential. All of this is underpinned by our unwavering commitment to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all children. We will act quickly and follow our procedures to ensure children receive early help, effective support, protection and justice in a culture of transparency, openness and, if needed, challenge with regards to maintaining high standards in safeguarding. We are very proud of our long track record of achievements and of our children’s readiness for continuing their education beyond primary school at the end of Year 6.

Dads Breakfast

We were delighted to host another successful Dads' Breakfast on Tuesday morning.

The focus this time was on Religious Education at Eliot Bank. Information about the new RE curriculum was presented, and how the learning is delivered in lessons was explained.

Dads’ and children were given the opportunity to complete a selection of typical activities, covering some of the religions taught.

These tasks are designed to allow the children to demonstrate what they have learnt about the religion, and also enable them to relate it to their own experiences and beliefs.

A quiz testing the knowledge of religious symbols and places of worship of the major religions, rounded off the coffee and croissants nicely.
