Welcome to Saxon School
Saxon Primary is a designated two-form entry primary school in Shepperton. Due to our popularity, in September 2015 we were asked to expand from a one-form to a two-form entry school; and now we have two classes per year group.
We are a friendly community school, small enough to ensure that everyone knows each other but big enough to be able to offer children a wide range of different opportunities. Saxon is approximately 10 minutes' walk away from Shepperton High Street, set in a quiet residential area in Briar Road.
In June 2013, as a result of the strength of our provision and leadership, we were designated by the Department for Education as a sponsor school and in September 2013 accredited by the National College for Teaching & Leadership as a National Support School. The Lumen Learning Trust was established in Autumn 2013 as a natural development of the school-to-school support carried out by the leadership team at Saxon Primary. It currently consists of five member schools: Saxon Primary, The Echelford Primary in Ashford, Riverbridge Primary in Staines-upon-Thames - all in the Surrey borough of Spelthorne, Walton Oak School in Walton-upon-Thames in the Surrey borough of Elmbridge, as well as Darley Dene Primary in Addlestone in the Surrey borough of Runnymede. Our Trust's ethos is that education is the basis for a secure future, a brighter future. By providing a firm foundation through primary education, we are enabling our children to achieve the qualifications they need to gain the employment they want so they can live the lives they want to live.
Saxon School is on a large site with four playgrounds, a trim trail, a 5-acre playing field and its own swimming pool. We are a feeder school for Thamesmead Secondary where the great majority of our children move onto after Year 6. Consequently we enjoy close links with this school and strive to make sure the transition out of Saxon is as smooth as possible.
Saxon Primary has a thriving parents' association who put on exciting events throughout the year for the pupils and the parents. Parent partnership is high on the agenda in Saxon Primary School where we believe that children reach their full potential in an environment where school and home work in close partnership.
The website is something of a 'window' into our world here at Saxon and we hope you enjoy it. The weekly newsletters in our News section found via the Parents tab give a particular insight into the life of the school.
However, nothing can match first-hand experience - so come and see us! Ring the school office on 01932 563035 who will be able to make an appointment for you. We have four Open Morning dates throughout the year, see the Open Days section of the website for details.
Saxon Primary School puts the children's needs at the heart of its provision. We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive culture that values and celebrates the contributions of all our children. Our whole school community is committed to nurturing and enabling all children to thrive and become resilient lifelong learners. Through our mindful approach to learning, all individuals are empowered to be kind, respectful and informed global citizens.
Saxon Primary School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children. To achieve our commitment we will ensure continous improvement and development of robust Safeguarding processes and procedures that promote a culture of Safeguarding amongst our staff and volunteers.
