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.

Comic Relief - 2017
Friday 24th March was Red Nose Day and everyone at Eliot Bank got involved! Children and staff donated £1 to come to school dressed in red - a sea of scarlet, maroon, tomato, rose and crimson greeted us in Assembly! We learnt about how money raised through Comic Relief helps people living incredibly tough lives, in the UK and across Africa.The donations from just four Eliot Bank children dressed in red could fully vaccinate a child against five deadly childhood diseases in Africa so think of the difference we made as a whole school. We also had a ‘write-laugh’, sharing some of the jokes pupils had been writing throughout the week. So far we’ve raised over £850 and we’ll like to give an extra thank you to Year 6 and EBSA for their additional fundraising efforts. Through Red Nose Day, Comic Relief are able to create real, lasting changes to the lives of people both in the UK and in some of the world’s poorest communities, so thank you for your support.
