Welcome to Heavers Farm Primary School.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our school blog which we hope will give you an insight into our enthusiasm for learning, the open nature of our approach and our commitment to improving the life chances of each and every one of our pupils. We hope that you take advantage of our blogs to engage with us. We welcome your thoughts and feedback which is why we include the facility to leave comments on all of our blog posts and pages.

I am privileged to lead Heavers Farm alongside our excellent leadership team Rachel Evans, Rodney Reid (Deputy Headteachers), Dan McCormack, Sarah Faulding (Assistant Headteachers) and our Governing Body. I have been the Headteacher at Heavers Farm since 2007 and have together with our school community have seen the school go from strength to strength. Since September 2013 I have also been the Executive Headteacher at Selsdon Primary School in South Croydon. Following consultation earlier this year on the 1st September 2013 we are will be joining together with Selsdon Primary as a hard federation. I will continue to divide my time between the two schools. We will be working together with the same aim, to ensure that teaching at both schools is consistently outstanding. This will ensure that all of our pupils achieve to the highest level.

We have found that the staff and pupils at both school have gained a great deal from this partnership over the past year. We will continue to collaborate and share ideas, to improve our practice whilst keeping our pupils at the forefront of everything we do.

We are all looking forward to another successful year here at Heavers Farm. Over the summer we have carried out improvements to the school kitchen and have replaced the floors in most of the classrooms.

As a result of our continued success and popularity Heavers will be expanding even further this year. We are taking an additional bulge class in Reception which means that we have now filled our extra classrooms.

We will be working with Croydon this year to agree further building and expansion work in order to formally expand to four forms of entry.

I look forward to the coming year and the challenges it will bring. I look forward to working alongside the children, families, staff and governors across both of our school communities

    • Hello Bianca,

      Sorry, however, I am based at Selsdon for much of the week at the moment. Mrs Shekar and Mrs Cousins are leading the school in my absence. If you have a concern I think the best thing to do is for us to arrange a meeting with Miss Dickins, the Early Years Phase Leader, as soon as possible. I will pass your message on to Miss Dickins so that she can contact you tomorrow.

      Best wishes

      Susan

    Thank you.

    Bianca
