Welcome to Purley Oaks Primary School

Pride in Excellence

Our Vision

At Purley Oaks we firmly believe that every child will be supported, valued and challenged. We are ambitious for our children and their families and are driven by our moral purpose to ensure that everything we do has a positive impact on the children’s lives. We are determined that our children will take pride in their learning and themselves and that they will strive for excellence.

By working closely together and continuously improving our practice, there is no limit to what can be achieved.
