Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Staples Road Primary School


"Pupils enjoy coming to school and they feel happy and safe." Ofsted Nov 2022 


We are a successful and inclusive 3 form entry mainstream primary school in the heart of Loughton. We are lucky to be located opposite Epping Forest and we regularly use it to enrich our curriculum and enable children to respect it and connect with it.


In partnership with the Governors and parents, our staff work hard to provide a safe, happy and consistently high quality provision for every child to reach the high expectations we hold.


We are proud of our curriculum offer: it challenges, excites and motivates all our children. It offers breadth and enrichment and, alongside our values of Kindness, Honesty, Resilience and Creativity, we aim to shape the whole child to ensure they achieve not only academically but also socially and emotionally too. 


Our shared vision is that we challenge ourselves and support each other to be the best that we can be. We believe that primary education should be an exciting journey and that every child should leave our school with a love of learning that will remain with them throughout their lives. Our motto is Strive, Respect, Succeed: every child's hard work and effort with a positive attitude is rewarded by celebrating their successes and achievements.


We are very proud of our school. I hope this website provides all the information you might need to gain a good insight. Please take a look at our short welcome video found on our homepage for a snapshot of life at Staples Road. If you want to find out even more, I recommend a visit as it gives you the opportunity to see the school in action.

Our values are kindness, honesty, creativity and resilience
