Welcome to Eliot Bank Primary School

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

Google Classroom Self-Help Guides: We have put together two vidoes to support parents as they work at home with their children.  The vidoes provide guidance as to how to login, view assignments, or upload completed work.

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.

Eliot Bank School is proud to be supporting Children In Need 2020

Use the link opposite to read our Children In Need Special Edition Newsletter focusing on this years Children In Need theme: FIVE TO THRIVE.

Everyone at Eliot Bank will be getting involved, raising money by having fun and learning about how Children in Need is helping change children’s lives around the UK. This year, Children in Need’s focus is on children’s mental well-being and we will be exploring this further on the day.

As a whole school, we’ll be trying to raise as much money as we can by taking part in a spotty themed fundraiser – children (and staff) come to school on Friday 13th November dressed in as many spots as you can and donate £1 to Children in Need on the day.

We want Children in Need to be a spot-tacular success in 2020, so get involved. If your child is fundraising for Children in Need out of school do let us know—we’d love to hear about it!
