Drew is a fully inclusive Community Primary school with a Nursery, providing education for pupils aged from 3 to 11.
The School is housed in a new purpose-built two-storey building with a lift, having moved from its original three-storey Victorian building in April 2003. Drew Primary School has a long history, having opened in its original building in 1895.
The ground floor contains the Nursery and Reception classes, Library and Computer Suite, the hall (used for PE, assemblies and school meals) as well as the School Office and Headteacher’s office. The first floor contains the Infant and Junior classrooms, the Restart and Learning Mentor rooms, and the Learning Support room.
The school grounds include the main playground and a separate outdoor area for the Nursery and Reception classes.
The Learning in Harmony Trust was formed in September 2014 by Sheringham Primary School and JFK Special School. In 2015, we were joined by two other Newham schools, Upton Cross Primary School and Hartley Primary School, and three further schools joined us in the first term of the 2016-17 school year - Blenheim Primary School and Greenways Primary School, all of which are located in Southend. Drew Primary School, also in Newham, joined us in January 2017. The latest school to join the trust is Temple Sutton Primary and Early Years School March 2018. We do expect to further increase our number of schools and expand our geographical range in the near future, but there is no intention to outgrow our capacity. We want to be big enough to sustainably do all the amazing things we want to do, but small enough to still know each other very well. For us, learning in harmony doesn't mean all schools have to be the same. We are bound together by our belief that by working in partnership as one organisation we can make a significant difference to the children and young people in our schools. We are proud to have both similarities and differences as schools, and see this diversity as a strength. Our shared values unite us.
With 8 schools situated in East London and in coastal Essex, staff working within our Trust have the opportunity to embrace a diverse range of experiences, from inner city multi-ethnic Newham down to Southend on Sea, only a 45 minute train journey away. Our range of schools provide a number of rich experiences for staff and students alike. With a number of good and outstanding Infant, Junior and Primary Schools, as well as a fantastic split-site Special School, our staff need look no further when it comes to career development.
