Welcome from the Head

Welcome to Furzedown Primary School, a hidden oasis in the heart of the local Tooting community situated in the southernmost extremity of the borough of Wandsworth.

 

Furzedown Primary School is a happy, inclusive place with a strong sense of individuality and history, very much reflective of our diverse community where difference is respected and celebrated! We are proud of our school and its holistic approach to ensuring that every child achieves their full potential.

 

Through the commitment and expertise of our staff in conjunction with our parents and governors, we provide a high quality education that is unique, stimulating, fun and engaging.  Underpinning our approach is the belief that every child has an equitable right to a consistent opportunity to be safe, happy and is nurtured to grow spiritually, mentally, physically and academically. To that end we enable our children to flourish in all areas of their lives, so that they are well rounded active global citizens of today, becoming confident global citizens of tomorrow, with great emphasis placed particularly on:

  • Enthusiasm
  • Resilience
  • Confidence and pride
  • Respect of self and others

 

Our commitment to self-evaluation and endless improvement means that we continually build on our strengths and areas for development, aiming to meet the educational challenges of the 21st century through agility. This is because at Furzedown we know that the one constant in life is change and we recognise that our children need to be the beneficiaries of such variation.

 

If you are considering this school for your child, do contact us so that we can arrange for you to come along and experience the magic of Furzedown and learn more about the school for yourself.
