A Message from the Head of School, Jenny Klein
Eliot Bank is an Outstanding Primary School with a happy, vibrant atmosphere, looking out across the North Downs from its site high up on the Sydenham Forest Hill borders. Whilst we are extremely proud of our excellent track record in progress and attainment, we believe that children will only do their best when they feel safe and happy. Our whole school ethos centres around giving children an excellent academic education, balanced by a broad, relevant curriculum, lots of visits and trips, clubs and a whole range of opportunities to get involved in school life beyond the classroom. Pupils, staff and parents work together to create a caring inclusive school that allows each individual child to achieve their full potential.
Anti Bullying Week
During Anti Bullying Week, pupils at Eliot Bank were making a noise about bullying. Pupils used their voice to write poems, sending a clear message about bullying and how we can work together to stop it at school – making a noise by telling an adult we trust.
We talked about issues relating to bullying and pupils developed a clear understanding of what to do if they are bullied or see others being bullied. Through collective action we hope to prevent bullying and ensure children feel happy and safe to thrive.
Here are some extracts from our poems -
