 Welcome back, hope you had a lovely holiday! I am very keen to introduce myself as the new Headteacher at John Scurr Primary School. I am looking forward to meeting each and every one of you and your family in the coming weeks. The teachers and all the staff have been working hard this summer to get the school ready for the new start. Its an exciting time!

This website will undergo some changes in the coming term but please ensure you keep yourself updated through reading all the Newsletters and checking in from time to time.

Thank you to you all for making me feel so welcome today and for ensuring the children arrived on time and in their school uniforms this is an excellent start; we need to continue to work together as partners in the coming year ahead.

Best wishes,

Maria Lewington

Breakfast Club

We want every child at John Scurr to start the day with everything they need in order to learn effectively; a fundamental element of this is a healthy, filling breakfast. The chance to socialise with peers & adults, to keep fit & play also play an important role in readying children for the day ahead.

Children can arrive any time from 08:00 am, until 08:40 am, and they will be offered a selection of healthy breakfast options: a variety of cereals, porridge oats, bagels, juice, milk and yoghurt. A great way to start the day!  The breakfast club benefits from support from the Magic Breakfast Mayor's Fund for London Project. (Please see more information on this link

This gives every child the opportunity to start the day with the right fuel for learning.
