Welcome to Christ Church Erith Primary School

Christ Church school is a warm and welcoming school. We aim to give children a first class start to their education.

Our Ethos Statement says;
'Christ Church Primary School, working in partnership with families, Parish and Diocese, will seek to develop well-rounded individuals, encompassing educational, personal, moral, social and spiritual values within the Christian structure of discipline, forgiveness and inclusion, to enable all to fulfill their potential.'

Our Headteacher is Mrs Beverley Gardner

Our Address is
Lesney Park Road

Phone: 01322 333780

Scroll down the page to read about Song for Peace, and our recent Ofsted reports.
We are at the beginning of an exciting time at Christ Church. We are having major building works - to both build new classrooms, and improve the building we have at present. The next few months will be hectic, with lots of inconveniences - but it will all be worth it in the end!

In November and December 2006, the school had two inspections! The first was an Ofsted inspection and the second was a church school inspection. Both inspections recognised the schools' many successes. The Ofsted inspection paid particular attention to the progress the school had made over the past 2 years, and the church inspection found us to be a 'good and improving' school. Our Ofsted report is now online on the Ofsted website, and our church school report is on the NatSoc website, and also attached at the bottom of this page.

On Thursday 21st September, all the children and staff sang a Song for Peace, to celebrate UN World Peace Day. The song was called, 'No wars will stop us singing.
We sang to the parents and friends of the school at the end of the day, on the school playground.
The children sang beautifully, and everyone was deeply moved.
After singing the song, children from each year group said a prayer for peace. The prayer was made up of genuine prayers written by mothers of sons and daughters stationed in Iraq.
Father God,
Please give us the peace only you can provide.
Wrap your loving arms around all the pain in the world.
Held us to live together and learn to love each other, regardless of our differences.
We believe that you love all of us.
And we ask you to bring us together in love, to live together in peace.
We ask these things in your name, Amen.


Our School vision arose from some common beliefs which,

we feel, reflect our school.

These Are:

1. Developing every child's potential, so everyone succeeds

2. Team Work - Supporting each other

3. Commitment to pupil achievement

4. Positive ethos, environment and approach

5. Rewarding success and achievement

6. Working together with parents and the community

7. Expecting high standards of behaviour, respect for each other and the environment in which we live

Thank you for considering a place at Christ Church for your child. Please read the following as it will hopefully make the application process clear.

If you are interested in sending your child to our school, please place your child's name on our register of interest by contacting the school. You will need to give your child's name, date of birth and your name and address.

If you would like to transfer your child to our school from another local school, your first step should be to speak to the headteacher of your child's school to discuss your situation before contacting us.

If you would like to transfer your child to our school because you are moving into the area, please phone our school secretary to find out whether we have a vacancy.

If you would like to make an appointment to look around our school, please phone the school secretary.

You can download a Christ Church Application Form (at the bottom of this page) which can be filled in electronically. Forms do need to be brought in to school, along with any necessary evidence. Parents need to fill in one form for each child in their family - hopefully by being able to fill in forms electronically, this makes this job a little less onerous!
We can offer 40 children a place in each year group. If more than 40 children apply for places (by choosing us as first, second, third choice etc on the application form), governors have to apply our admissions criteria in deciding who takes priority.
  Full details of our admissions criteria can be found in Bexley Local Authority's booklet on Admissions 2007/8. In a nutshell, children whose families have a commitment to Christianity take priority over those who don't. Children whose families have a commitment to another religion also take priority over those who have no commitment to any religion. In addition to this, children with siblings in the school also take a higher priority than those who don't.
In the past, even pupils who have no siblings and have no commitment to Christianity have gained a place in the school, so the admissions criteria must not put you off applying!

If you do have a commitment to Christianity, or another religion, you must fill in the declaration form, providing the appropriate evidence, to substantiate this. Applications that can not evidence their commitment in the correct way, can not be given higher priority. This is to ensure that the admissions criteria is applied fairly.
