Mr Griffin - Headteacher


We believe our children can do anything if we give them the motivation and support and our school vision embodies this:

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.

Our ethos is based on five themes. Ethos Award certificates and medals are presented to pupils who demonstrate these qualities at the end of each half term:


Our weekly Pride in Excellence award certificates are presented to pupils who exemplify the skills of being:

  • Autonomous
  • Resilient
  • Aspirational
  • Collaborative
  • Enquiring

Our Ethos Awards and Pride in Excellence Awards underpins everything we do. It is these shared values which unites our Purley Oaks community as we strive for excellence.

We are always delighted to receive visitors, so please do take the time to come and see us.
