Welcome to Maryland Primary School

A warm welcome to Maryland Primary School and Children’s Centre from Headteacher, Mrs. Lorna Jackson, Cert.Ed., B.Ed, NPQH.

Our school is in Stratford, the home of the London 2012 Olympics. We are situated close to the Olympic venues, Stratford Town Centre and Stratford City.

The school is 2 form entry (2 classes in each year group – 14 classes in all), with a separate 78 place nursery department. Also on site is our Children’s Centre which offers a wide range of services to the community. We pride ourselves on being a diverse school with 70+ staff members from many different backgrounds. We have over 500 children from 34 countries representing 48 different languages.

We are a model school for Oxford University Press in the teaching of the  successful phonic programme, Read Write Inc. In addition we are a creative school with a reputation built around our musical productions, our award-winning choir, our talented dance group, and our very imaginative displays.Many pupils take part in music tuition after school hours, as well as maths and literacy classes after school, on Saturdays and in the holidays.

We are dedicated to ensuring our children have ambition for themselves (our motto is ‘where our children’s future matters most’), that they play an active part in the local legacy of the 2012 Olympics and that they are successful learners, enjoying each and every day that they spend with us at Maryland.

Ofsted describe our excellent environment as one "in which all pupils thrive and flourish", where "pupils’ behaviour is outstanding". They also commented that there was a "high proportion" of outstanding teaching. We are continually looking to improve in all areas of our school as we strive for excellence in educating children to ensure we remain one of the best primary schools in Stratford, Newham and London

If you are ever in the area, pop in to see us – we love visitors!

Every year we have a curriculum focus that we share with our parents and governors, who enthusiastically support us in embedding it in the school. This year our focus is on MENTAL MATHS. We want our children to be very fast at their times tables and number bonds, because we know this will be a great advantage to them as they move on in their education.
You can view the presentation to parents given by deputy headteacher, Mrs Cooper, on 19th September 2013 to set the scene for our work this year. Click on Staff Leadership team >Click on Mrs Cooper’s picture and scroll through. By now you will all be using the free book we have provided to all our families, MENTAL MATHS 5 a day, every day with your child. If you do not have your free copy of Mental Maths 5 a day, please contact Mrs Cooper to receive one. You can also now view the presentation on how to use the book by clicking here.
