New Ofsted Report September 2023. See below.

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.
