Welcome to Blenheim Primary School and Nursery
Blenheim Primary School & Nursery is located on the outskirts of Orpington with wonderful grounds. We are a school at the heart of our community; our parents are supportive and take a full part in the school. We have a highly trained, dedicated team who are deeply committed to providing a high quality education for young children.
It is our mission to provide the best quality education for the whole
child, working together with parents and carers so that children develop a love of learning. We want our children to flourish in all aspects of their lives within a safe atmosphere of mutual support and trust. It is also our mission to be a caring, family school.
We always have high expectations of ourselves and the children and we are deeply committed to continuing to raising achievement. Creativity, fun and the broadening of horizons are central to our work. Every child is known personally and is special to us.
We find as many ways as possible to do this so we are always looking for
exciting contexts for real learning as well as providing a solid understanding of the basics. This includes providing a range of extra-curricular activities suitable to the age of the children such as performing arts, choir, art, gardening and sports clubs.
OFSTED 2010 recognised the school was particularly good at caring for our children. We are good at promoting the personal and social development and well-being of our children throughout the whole school. We are very proud of our children and are regularly praised for their behaviour. The wide range of cultures and backgrounds of the children make belonging to Blenheim School an interesting, rewarding and uplifting experience. Many people are struck by how special the school is when they visit. We want to go above and beyond for our
children and the community around the school.
