St. Saviour’s CE Primary School

St Saviour’s CofE Primary School, Herne Hill Road, London SE24 0AY


St Saviour’s is a small, friendly and welcoming church school which serves the local community in and around Herne Hill. We have just one class for each year group from Reception to year 6.

We serve an area which is culturally and socially rich and diverse, and are well supported by parents, carers and the local community, especially St Saviour’s Church and St Paul’s Church in the Parish of Herne Hill. Most parents choose to send their children to the school because of our Christian foundation, academic achievements and wider opportunities.

We welcome children from families of every faith and none. There is a family and almost ‘village’ atmosphere about St Saviour’s. Some families have had links with the school for generations, and they continue to want their children to attend as they have happy memories of their time here. Other families are new to the school when their child joins in Reception and quickly get to know our school community.

The governors, leadership team and staff are passionately committed to the school. We have a strong and stable staff team who receive regular training to update their practice and support their professional development.

Our aim is to develop, nurture and celebrate individual talents and personalities whilst emphasising the importance of community, social values, respect and responsibility. We have high expectations for all our children – academically, socially and spiritually – and are proud of the cultural and linguistic diversity of our school, which reflects the local community.

Our values are taken from the Bible, Galatians 5 v 22 & 23 where we encourage children to develop the ‘fruit of the Spirit’: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Our ambition is that our children have an enriching school experience in all areas of the curriculum and beyond.

St Saviour’s School is a popular school in Lambeth and gained a ‘good’ judgement in its last Ofsted inspection. Staff always work together in a dedicated way to improve teaching, learning and each child’s educational experience.
