About Tooting Primary School
Tooting Primary School, London, is a free, mixed, primary school for children aged 4-11, founded by the Graveney Trust.

By September 2014, it was heavily oversubscribed. As well as on site provision, the school also have access to facilities at Graveney School.
Tooting Primary School is split over three floors and is designed to cater for 63 children in each year group. The school is two-form entry with the facility to admit three ASD children into each year group. These children have access to a resource base with specialist staff and equipment, including a sensory pod.
Values and vision
Tooting Primary School’s pastoral care focuses on building self-esteem in the belief that this, in combination with careful planning, building good relationships and ensuring that the highest expectations are in place, will result in all pupils achieving to the highest level. In addition to developing a robust, creative curriculum that will give pupils the opportunity to learn key skills in all academic areas, the school also aims to ensure that they develop a 'can-do' attitude towards life and learning.
“Leaders, managers and governors have lost no time in establishing a culture of exceptionally high expectations since the school opened. Working closely with staff, they have made sure that teaching is consistently of the very highest quality, and that pupils’ outstanding behaviour and attitudes to learning flourish.”
