About George Tomlinson Primary School
George Tomlinson is a lively, diverse and happy community school with the highest expectations of all of its members.
We believe that everyone is a learner; staff, pupils, Governors, parents, carers and visitors and that learning continues beyond the classroom and indeed beyond the school gates.
Here at George Tomlinson we believe that every child is an important member of our community and should be encouraged and challenged to achieve their full potential.
We recognise the challenges faced by parents and carers and we offer support with care beyond the school day. We run a Breakfast Club and an After School Club as well as many Extra Curricular Activities.
We aim for each child to develop the skills they need to take their place in the wider community and hope that by the time they leave us each child will have developed the skills and confidence they need to make appropriate and productive life choices.
We are a 3 form entry school. We have a 90 place Nursery and admit pupils once they are 3 years old. Children work in mixed ability classes. Year 1 – 6 classes are split between two phases with Phase 1 being Years 1, 2 and 3 and Phase 2 being Years 4, 5 and 6. Each of these Phases is led by one of our two Deputy Headteachers who are responsible for standards in learning and teaching and Inclusion. Our Early Years Foundation Stage is led by an Assistant Headteacher who is also responsible for standards in learning and teaching and Inclusion.
The school has excellent transport links with Leytonstone Tube station a three minute walk away. On the Central Line central London is just 20 minutes from our doorstep. Additionally the bus station is a three minute walk away and Leytonstone overground train station 5 minutes away. We are also a 10 minute walk away from Wanstead Flats.
We are lucky enough to have a school field where we hold sports clubs, sports days and school events and where the children play at lunchtimes in the dry weather.
