Herbert Morrison Primary School

Hartington Road, London SW8 2HP


Herbert Morrison is a one form entry primary school with a Nursery Class.

We are a small school with an inclusive, supportive family attitude and a commitment to excellence. We ensure high expectations are maintained by enabling our children and staff to develop the enthusiasm and confidence to learn and achieve.

Staff are professional and committed to ensuring that individuals are valued and reach their full potential. We strive for the best outcomes and progress for all.

We welcome and support Newly Qualified Teachers (NQT) and offer a fully comprehensive NQT programme of fortnightly Continues Professional Development (CPD) through the Lambeth Teaching School Alliance. This includes visiting other local schools, as well as sessions from lead professionals in Lambeth.

We are Ofsted graded as ‘Outstanding’ in all areas. We are an Inclusion Quality Mark Centre of Excellence and have the Rights Respecting Schools Award as Gold.

Ofsted 2016:
‘The highly innovative curriculum is varied and engages pupils’ interest. Behaviour is outstanding.’
‘Parents’ views about the school are all extremely positive.’

Inclusion Quality Mark (IQM) 2017:
‘The sense of cohesive and effective teamwork is tangible, and strongly contributes to the school’s success.’

Rights Respecting Schools Award (RRSA) 2018:
‘There was evidence of very strong respectful relationships between children, between adults and between children and adults.’

We aim to serve the community by providing an education of high quality.

The school is part of the Wyvern Federation which provides our staff with a strong network of colleagues to continue to develop teaching and learning, and provides our staff with strong opportunities for CPD. The school values the importance of high quality staff supporting learners and provides additional non-class based teaching staff to support learning across the school.

Herbert Morrison Primary School works closely within the local community. We have formed strong links with the South Bank Centre, Ben Hollioake Learning Centre at the Oval Cricket Ground and Art4Space; a local arts-based charity. We are the host school for ‘In Harmony’, providing specialist music tuition for all of our children who regularly perform in school and for the local community.
