A Primary Trust for Primary Schools
Welcome to The Echelford Primary School
The first years of your child's education are precious and should be filled with a joy of learning. Our entire staff team is committed to securing the best possible outcomes for each individual. We pride ourselves on knowing and understanding every child so that we can craft our provision to meet their needs whilst helping them to appreciate their own uniqueness and developing a strong sense of self-worth.
Our school community is made up of 3 parallel classes in every year group from Reception (aged 4-5 years) all the way up to Year 6 (aged 10-11 years). This makes us one of the larger schools in Spelthorne and means we are uniquely placed to offer our children every opportunity to form numerous friendships and, at the end of their time with us, make a confident and smooth transition to secondary school.
We are privileged to have been part of the Lumen Learning Trust since Autumn 2013; Saxon in Shepperton and Riverbridge in Staines currently make up the family. We are proud to be part of the group of three schools whose collaborative efforts supported our successful Ofsted Inspection in 2016 when we were awarded the grade of Good in every area.
We would love to show you around our school and give you the chance to see the dynamic learning environment for yourself. Please make contact with the school office on 01784 253233 who will make a booking for you.
Our teaching team benefits from the strengths and skill set from colleagues both within Echelford itself but also within Saxon. Across the two schools we have 9 Specialist Leaders of Education; our Headteacher, Mrs Vernon, is a serving Ofsted inspector; and our Executive Principal, Mrs. McCarthy is an accredited National Leader of Education and a serving Ofsted inspector.
Echelford is an inclusive primary school where everyone learns in an environment which encourages individuals to realise their own self-worth. We are committed to enabling opportunities to discover confidence, develop independence and build resilience so that individuals realise their own unique value and thrive both in our community and beyond.
Echelford Primary School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. To achieve our commitment we will ensure continuous improvement and development of robust Safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of Safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.
