BREAKING NEWS!!! We were awarded UNICEF 'Gold' Rights Respecting School Award in February 2024.

Welcome to our school's website

We hope that you will find the website informative and that it will provide you with a flavour of Sherwood Park Primary School, our ethos and our values. We are continually updating and developing the website to make it more interactive and a good source of information about our school. We have a very active Facebook page (Sherwood Park Nursery and Primary School) and X account (@SherwoodPBexley). They show a wide range of activities, sports and trips that are on offer at Sherwood Park and our amazing children engaged in learning, laughter and play. 

Visits to see 'our school in action' are warmly welcomed. Tours of the school will take place on Thursday mornings from September 2023. Please ring the school office to book a place on a tour and meet our new Headteacher/Deputy Headteacher. In the meantime, look through our website and if you have further questions please ring the main office to speak to a member of the school's senior leadership team.

    Secret Santa Room
    Dear Parents and Carers, We have some very eager parent volunteers who are happy to run a Secret Santa Room again this year. It was a brilliant success last year and the children had lots of fun choosing a gift for someone special. We will hold our Secret Santa Room event on Monday 18th December, when the children can bring in £2 to buy a gift for someone in their family. For this to work we need gift donations from all children by Wednesday 13th December. Example donations could be unused candles, chocolates, bath sets, stocking fillers such as gloves, socks etc and we recommend that it’s a gift suitable for adults as the children generally enjoy choosing for their grownups. All we ask is that items do not contain alcohol or nuts and are unopened/used. The idea is that if every child brings in a gift, there will be enough gifts for all children to buy one (and fingers crossed they don’t buy back what you sent in). It’s such good fun and the children enjoy bringing home the wrapped present ready for Christmas day. We are aware of the costs rising for everybody and so please do not spend lots of money on any of these donations. Thank you for your support in making this time of year special for the children. We are very appreciative of all the support we get for our events. Thank you.

Once you have registered, you will have access to a range of training and resources. Many parents and carers have already registered in the past.

I am sure you will agree it is important that both school and home educates children in how they to use social platforms appropriately and to keep everyone safe online. If you have any further queries, please get in the touch with the school office via email. Thank you Mr Ashley Quayle Deputy Head/Designated Safeguarding Lead Sherwood Park
