A warm welcome to our school. We are a unique and diverse learning community located in Plumstead that provides the best possible support in enabling pupils to achieve their best.

The school is spread across two sites both located within the Plumstead area. Pupils from Reception to Year 2
are based at the High Street site and Years 3 to 6 are a short distance away at the Manor Way site. In addition,
we also have a purpose built nursery unit, which offers both part-time and full-time places, based at the Manor Way site.

We are a school with high aspirations for pupils, their families and the community of Plumstead. Every single
child at Bannockburn is given the opportunity to achieve their very best. We pride ourselves on providing the highest quality learning experiences; we make learning relevant to the lives of our children, which is both practical and engaging.

Our School Vision is 'Growing Together, Learning for Life'.

Through our holistic curriculum, we endeavour to:

  1. promote mutual respect, positive values and wellbeing
  2. face new challenges through teamwork;
  3. learn and achieve in a supportive, stimulating and creative environment;
  4. celebrate diversity and work in partnership with parents and the wider community.

Pupils and staff are highly motivated and firmly believe in learning together, in partnership with families.

Our first priority is that we want the children to feel safe at our school, to understand they will be supported both academically and personally, so they can achieve their very best and be proud of their achievements. The life skills we teach our pupils here give them confidence and self-belief. 

At Bannockburn, the children, parents/carers, staff and governors put together what we think are the most important key values. These are important values for the children to use in school. More importantly, they are
a set of values that we hope the children will continue to improve upon and use to good effect at secondary school and in later life. Our school values play an integral part in the daily life at school and complement the British Values.

We offer an extensive range of extra-curricular clubs and classes, which many children participate in. There are a range of opportunities, such as musical theatre, football and gymnastics to basketball, street dance and Spanish.

As part of our 'wrap around' support both before and after school, we provide a Breakfast Club and after-school Play Club.

Children often learn best out of doors. All our pupils experience an extensive range of trips and visits and benefit from a number of experts and professionals who come to the school for workshops and events. Children learn a range of musical instruments and every year our school choir performs at various events held in venues, such as Royal Albert Hall and the Barbican.
