Description of the school

This is a larger than average infant school. The socio-economic circumstances are mixed. A quarter of pupils are from minority ethnic groups and a fifth of pupils speak English as an additional language.

Of these, about half are at an early stage of English language acquisition. A small proportion of pupils are from refugee and asylum seeker families. When children start school, their skills and abilities are similar to those of other children of their age.

For the last two years, pupil mobility, especially in to Year 2, has been high. This term the school amalgamated with the neighbouring Nursery to become the ’Federation of Thomas Wall and Robin Hood schools’. The school has gained a number of national and local awards including Investors in People, Basic Skills Quality Mark, Healthy Schools Award, Activemark, two School Achievement awards, London Schools Environment Award and the London in Bloom Certificate of Excellence.
