'At Muswell Hill Primary we have worked hard to create a successful, high achieving, happy, inclusive community. One we are proud of and one which enables us to work in partnership with others, celebrate our successes and empower our children to be the best versions of themselves. Our community is where friendships thrive and where children are encouraged to discover a world of possibilities in a challenging yet supportive setting. Here at Muswell Hill Primary School, we embrace the joy of learning every day, through our strong, rich, broad curriculum.'
Muswell Hill Primary School is a co-educational county day school for pupils aged four to eleven in the London Borough of Haringey. The school is two-form entry. The current roll is 420.
It was formed in May 2000 with the amalgamation of the former Infants and Junior schools. In recent years the school has been substantially renovated and modernised to provide an attractive, modern environment.
The school is organised in single age groups with two mixed ability classes for each year's intake of children; a total of 14 classes. Children are normally in classes of up to thirty, with one teacher. In addition we employ teachers to give support to children needing additional help, and to give non-contact time to enable classroom teachers to carry out their additional posts of responsibilities. Nursery nurses and teaching assistants support teachers by working with groups of children, and special needs assistants work with children who have statements of special needs.
The Headteacher is responsible for the internal organisation, management and discipline within the school, but all members of the staff work together, as a team. Regular meetings are held where all staff contribute ideas and share expertise to improve and develop the curriculum. Most teachers have a curriculum responsibility alongside their teaching commitment.
The school has a School Development Plan and that is drawn up annually by pupils, staff and governors. This identifies which areas of the curriculum and other aspects of school life we are prioritising for development each term.
Aims/Mission: Everyone belongs here, everyone has a voice and everyone is heard
