About Timbercroft Primary School
Timbercroft Primary School is part of the Maritime Academy Trust, an innovative partnership of schools in Greenwich and Kent. Our schools transform through collaboration and an entrepreneurial curriculum which equips children with life skills.
We are a two form entry school from Nursery to Year 6 (3 - 11 year olds), which each phase based in one of four buildings on a large site in a residential area. Our intake is diverse with over 36 languages being spoken and a wide range of educational needs catered for!
We believe learning should be exciting - our ultimate aim is to provide a highly enjoyable, creative curriculum which not only incorporates the National Curriculum but the needs, thoughts and ideas of every learner in our school. Our creative curriculum ensures that all of our pupils are motivated, engaged and enthused about every learning experience, inspiring them to become lifelong learners. The design of the curriculum takes into account the needs of all pupils, values their diversity and allows them to make excellent progress within their learning. Children work towards an exciting exit point which we call our 'Big Outcomes' where they can share their learning with parents and friends of the school. This topic encourages entrepreneurial skills, giving children an opportunity to apply their knowledge and understanding, contextualising their learning.
The children and adults at Timbercroft have high expectations of behaviour and as a community we all work together to ensure that the school environment is positive and safe for all. We are an IQM Centre of Excellence and Flagship School for Inclusion and we are very proud of our wonderful friendly caring committed staff and children. At the core of our ethos is the belief that all children have the right to quality first teaching as part of a broad and balanced curriculum.
