Welcome to The Echelford Primary School
The Echelford Primary School is a three form entry school taking 3 classes per year group from Reception (aged 4-5yrs) all the way up to Year 6 (aged 10-11yrs). This makes Echelford one of the larger schools in Spelthorne however despite its size we pride ourselves in maintaining a family feel where everyone knows each other.
Echelford is set on a spacious well-equipped site with two playgrounds and a large field where the children are able to enjoy the use of our own adventure playground, trim trail and football pitch.
Echelford is approximately 20 mins walk from Ashford High Street and serves the local community and beyond with many children coming from other Spelthorne and Hounslow communities.
From Autumn 2013 we were delighted to become part of the Lumen Learning Trust with Saxon Primary taking on the role of our sponsoring school. The drivers for change which enabled Saxon to become a centre of excellence for Shepperton are those that have underpinned Echelford's rapid developments too. The starting point for Echelford's learning environment is the child and we work to 'craft' the provision around their individual needs. In this way we can be confident that we are ensuring the right opportunities are made available to enable every child to excel and genuinely achieve their full potential.
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, has been successful in her application to become an Ofsted inspector; and our Executive Principal, Mrs. McCarthy is an accredited National Leader of Education and a serving Ofsted inspector.
The Echelford Primary School puts the children's needs at the heart of its provision. Our whole school community is committed to enabling the children to become successful lifelong learners and happy, fulfilled adults who can make positive choices about their future.
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.
