About Us

IMG_0179Message from the Headteacher

Welcome to Heavers Farm Primary School.

Thank you for taking the time to look at our school blog.

We are all looking forward to another successful year here at Heavers Farm. The building work is now complete and over the summer we carried out a number of improvements to our grounds and existing building. As a result we will have better facilities for the children both inside and out.

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 almost filled our extra classrooms. We will be liaising with Croydon this year to agree further building and expansion work.

We are also really excited to be working alongside another Croydon school, Selsdon Primary this year. I will be sharing my time between both schools; I will be taking on the role as Interim Executive Headteacher at Selsdon, whilst retaining my role as Headteacher here at Heavers.

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. This is a brilliant opportunity for the talented and hard-working staff at both schools to collaborate and share ideas and good practice. We will focus on continuously improving the quality of learning and teaching. To achieve this, we expect everyone in our school community to continue to read, talk and think about learning in a deep and meaningful way.

There are exciting times ahead! 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


  5. Thank you for your speedy response; as always.

    Yes that will be appreciated.

    I hope to speak with Miss Dickins tomorrow.

    Thank you.
