Message from Kate Mansfield, Head of School

Curwen Primary and Nursery School is a highly successful school, based in Plaistow within the London Borough of Newham.  We provide an excellent education for children from the ages of 3 to 11 and are consistently amongst the top 10% of schools in the country. We are very proud of our school and its many achievements and awards and believe that this is because we work in partnership with our pupils, families, staff and the local and wider communities as a TEAM.  

Your child’s time at Curwen Primary School is very precious and we are pleased that we are able to share this with you.    We provide a curriculum that acknowledges the importance of the basic skills, but endeavours to teach those skills in an exciting way, as well as finding time to focus on more creative and artistic skills and making sure that we enjoy what we learn, using our local and wider environments and opportunities to support this to ensure that we offer our pupils the best start in life and that they are ready for the next steps in their education.

The school provides a modern, clean environment for our children to learn in and we recently undertook extensive building works to provide an extension to the school for our Upper Key Stage 2 pupils which includes 8 new class rooms, group work rooms, a small dining area and teacher work space.

Please don’t hesitate to make direct contact with the school if there is  anything you need to ask.  Our office staff will give you a warm welcome, and offer a wealth of information.
