Welcome to Eliot Bank Primary School

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

Following the government decision late on the evening of Friday 1 January 2021, primary schools in Lewisham were directed to remain closed to the majority of pupils after the Christmas holiday, due to the extremely high COVID 19 infection rates within our borough. We understand that this decision will be reviewed by the government after February Half Term (15/02/21 - 19/02/21), in line with the latest information on infection rates at that time.

From Tuesday 5 January 2021, we will be following government expectations that only children of critical workers and vulnerable children who have an Education Health Care Plan (EHCP); those with an assigned Social Worker or other circumstances will be able to attend school.

During this period our learning for all other children moves online and we are fully prepared for this eventuality.

Our remote learning offer is through Google Classroom, and we sent home login details with your child last term. If you have mislaid these, please contact the school office via email (info@eliotbank.lewisham.sch.uk). We will get these to you as soon as possible.

For more information please read the Remote Learning letter that was sent home recently.

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.
