The school works to ensure that the educational and social needs of the children will be identified and provided for with due care and attention, and in such a manner as to offer a secure and reliable service for parents and carers.

Goodrington is a small, well-run independent school with a warm, friendly atmosphere that enables children to enjoy their education. There are five forms in the school, each one small enough to ensure that every pupil receives individual attention as needed.

The school, which was first opened in the 1930s, is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a residential area of Hornchurch and has a large garden for games and play. The hall is used by the Nursery Class, and for concerts and plays.

Major building work has been carried out in recent years to improve school amenities, including a new hall, and further improvements are planned.

We take children from 3 to 11 years of age and prepare them for entrance either to state secondary or to independent schools, in accordance with the wishes of parents and the ability of the child.

We are conscious that education is a partnership between children, school and parents and are therefore pleased to welcome parents into school whenever they wish to discuss their child's progress.

Our Curriculum covers Foundation Years, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. We can also accommodate children with general learning difficulties, such as Dyslexia and Dyspraxia.


The course of study is wide and varied, encompassing traditional values and work required by the National Curriculum, with particular emphasis on Literacy, Numeracy and Science. Also included are Religious Education, History, Geography, French, Art, Music, Drama and P.E. All children have access to a computer with appropriate educational programmes.

Our pupils have achieved good examination results over the years, gaining places at a variety of selective schools, both in the independent and the state sectors. All children, whether or not they are examinees, follow the same curriculum taking full account of each child's ability. We do our own teacher assessment for S.A.T.S. based on previous tests which go to the senior school with the pupils. The tests for Literacy and Numeracy have been developed to reflect the changes now in widespread use.

It is our aim that they should be approximately a year ahead on average at the age of eleven, so that they leave here feeling confident in their work, with a sound basis on which to build their secondary education. Children with difficulties are treated with respect and are encouraged and helped to reach their full potential.

Until they are fluent and confident readers, pupils are given one-to-one reading tuition by a teaching assistant specially employed for this purpose. This service is extended to any child at any stage in their schooling who may be experiencing problems, thus enabling all children in the school to reach their full reading potential.

There is a library which the children are encouraged to use to improve their reading and research abilities. Trips are arranged to places of interest and project work is done prior to the outings to make these visits relevant.

Once a completed registration form and fee have been received by us your child is guaranteed a place in the school on the agreed date, provided that the Bond is paid a half term before the starting date. There are no entry requirements, but we do like to meet the parents and child before a child joins the school. Priority is given to siblings of existing pupils and to children in the Nursery Class.

The school participates in the local Early Years Development Scheme and funding is available to all eligible three and four year olds.
