Coronavirus (Covid-19) update - updated 27-05-20 at 18:00

School remains closed for the majority of pupils, although we are planning for a phased re-opening from 1st June 2020.  We are closed over May half term (25th May to 29th May 2020), but we have moved the Inset day from 1st June 2020 to 21st July 2020.

Letters to familes were sent out on Friday 22nd May 2020.

School will remain open for eligible families who need childcare in order to be able to continue their work (keyworkers).  These families have already been identified and notified and we will be expecting their children in school on the days they have indicated.  We have planned for an extension to some families from the week beginning Monday 8th June 2020.  These families have also been identified and notified.

We hope to be able to re-open our kitchen from 1st June 2020.

In the meantime, for pupils, staff and anyone else who is planning to visit our school, please look out for the following symptoms and do not attend if:

  •  you have a new continuous cough and/or
  •  you have a high temperature (fever) - i.e. if you are hot to the touch on your chest or back

If you or your child have either or both of these symptoms you must stay away from school and self-isolate for at least seven days. The rest of the family (with no symptoms) must also isolate themselves for 14 days. 

Thank you for your co-operation.  As the situation changes we will have to update this information, so please check back regularly.

All staff, visitors and pupils will be asked to wash or sanitise their hands when coming into school and regularly wash them or sanitise them throughout the school day.

Welcome to Cranmere Primary School and Nursery,

I am proud to say that Cranmere is a happy and caring school which is well supported by a very strong community of parents, families, Governing Body and local residents. Our children are polite, bright and engaging as a result of our family friendly ethos. We are fortunate to have a beautiful and well equipped new school building in the heart of Esher, behind Sandown Racecourse, which opened in April 2016 and is set within extensive and beautiful grounds which enhances and extends our teaching curriculum.

I have an incredibly hard working and dedicated staff team whose main aim is to ensure that above all, each and every child is a happy, motivated and enthusiastic learner who embraces learning and relishes challenge. As a staff team we are fully committed and continually strive to provide the very best learning opportunities and experiences through an exciting curriculum for all our children, from our Nursery through to Year 6, so that they can reach their full potential both academically and spiritually. Our aim is to equip our children with skills that will serve them well in education and in their lives as future citizens.

We are a fully inclusive school. Our 6 R’s (Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Reflectiveness, Reasoning, Respectful and Resilient) alongside Fundamental British Values (democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs) underpins our everyday practice so that all members of our school community respect and support one another as well as feel valued and safe. Each and every child’s safety and well-being is a priority.

We have a strong and active ‘Friends of Cranmere Association’ who organise many fundraising and social events throughout the year which are enjoyed by everyone and greatly benefit our children and provide additional resources for our school.

Visits to our school are warmly welcomed and once here you will see, hear and feel just what makes our school a great environment in which to learn and work. We are all very proud of our school and we are excited about the next step in our journey as we expand to serve our community further.

With Regards,
Mrs Kathie Daniels
Headteacher

We are committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expect all members of staff and visitors to share this commitment.
