West Wimbledon Primary School is a community school in the London Borough of Merton with 340 pupils on roll, including Treetops a base for children with autism. There is one reception class and a 26-place nursery (with a mix of full time and part time places).

We draw pupils from many different communities and backgrounds: 25% of children are on the SEND register (which includes the children in Treetops);

38% of children speak English as an additional language; and 34% are in receipt of Pupil Premium funding.
Treetops currently provides 25 specialist places for children with autism in four classes across the primary age range. The teaching and learning in
Treetops is designed around the specific needs of the pupils addressing the emotional, communication, social and academic aspects in an integrated learning format.

The school has recently changed from two-form to one-form entry due to the wider context of falling birth rates and lower demand for places across south west London. However, together with Merton Council we have taken the strategic decision to double the size of Treetops over the next 2-3 years.

This is an exciting development, driven by the acute shortage of specialist education places for children with autism across Merton, that will benefit
Treetops children, our staff, the wider school community and Merton specialist education.

The new larger Treetops will be the largest specialist base within a mainstream school in South West London, allowing us to take a more strategic and leading role in Merton as well as providing the Treetops staff team with more opportunities for team work and shared curriculum planning and preparation.

Teamwork is highly valued, and all staff are committed to this. The school has a Senior Leadership Team of three phase leaders, the SENDCO, the Head of Base, the Deputy Head and the Headteacher who work collaboratively on strategic school priorities.

There is a culture of continuous improvement. As a result, we offer excellent professional development opportunities, and staff are encouraged to learn and progress using coaching approaches to develop personal practice.

Staff have worked collaboratively to redevelop a balanced and knowledge-rich curriculum that meets the needs of the children at our school, and that fosters creativity and inspires a love of learning.
Children also benefit from an extensive and varied extra-curricular programme e.g. martial arts, dance, sport, music, arts and crafts etc.

There is also popular wrap around childcare run by school staff – a breakfast club running from 7:30am and and after school club on site until 6:00pm.
