Welcome to Rushey Green Primary School

At Rushey Green, our aim is to ensure all children fulfil their potential as a result of nurturing relationships and a holistic approach to support and challenge. We take pride in being at the heart of Lewisham, a center for diversity, serving a vibrant community who deserve the best education we can offer. Our children are the best example of this, they are well behaved and supportive of one another. 

We seek to provide a knowledge rich curriculum, one that inspires ambition and cultivates a passion for learning. Our school leaders wholeheartedly believe that education can change lives, and so we are committed to this positive change, and are incredibly grateful for the continued support from our surrounding community. Children leave Rushey Green, as budding artists, musicians and confident performers.

  

Rushey Green embraces the multitude of nationalities within our school. It is important for our children to understand their own, and their peers', cultural identity and feel supported in the learning and acceptance of others. We do this by naming each class after a country. Children start each year with a Geography project based on heritage and identity. 

We have been recognised for our efforts to integrate international awareness and understanding within our curriculum, and rewarded the International School Award by the British Council. We continue to work alongside organisations that better our perception of teaching techniques, and help provide resources that are designed to approach topics covering world issues. Rushey Green is also a recognised UNICEF Rights Respecting School, awarded Silver for expressing children's rights and putting them into practice every day.

Our well resourced school site accommodates a variety of educational needs and enables us to deliver a range of engaging learning opportunities. A staple principle that is paramount to all we do, is physical and mental Well-being. To aid this view,  our newest site addition: Rushey Green Gardens. A Well-being center where we envision a hands-on project that incorporates understanding of sustainability, nutrition and self-care.

 

Welcome, and thank you for taking the time to find out more about what it is that makes our school unique. 
     
Please do not hesitate to come and visit our fantastic school.
We look forward to hearing from you.
