Our Mission

Academic Excellence, Creativity and Social Intelligence are at the heart of everything we do at Charles Dickens Primary School.

We give each of these values equal weighting and through a knowledge-rich curriculum, engaging teaching, great relationships and strong partnerships, we work hard to ensure that Charles Dickens is the best possible primary school experience for every child.

About our school

Our approach is always evidence-informed, and share and amplify the 'best bets' for schools  as an Education Endowment Foundation Research School.

Our curriculum is broadly traditional but reflective of our multicultural community and unique location in London. It is carefully crafted by subject specialists to ensure children move on to the next stage of their education with the language, knowledge and experience to show a broad and deep understanding of each subject. Children begin learning about the world around them, what has come before and the importance of writing in order to be able to change the world for the better in the future.
