About Us

We are a large primary school in the heart of East London. We take pride in celebrating the rich diversity of our families and value learning from each other. Gallions is a happy school, with passionate staff who see children as individuals and work enthusiastically to ensure all children thrive.

As the new Head Teacher of the school, it is my privilege to support the development of young people and the members of staff who work at the school. I also see it as a privilege to be able to help others in the community, encouraging everyone to feel part of the school’s vision and values. The school is a learning organisation and everyone should have access to learning opportunities.

Our learning places the whole child at its centre. We are ambitious and inclusive and believe in every child’s right to be successful. This belief underpins every aspect of school life and, working in partnership with our stakeholders, drives all that we do.

At Gallions, we know children achieve when they are safe, challenged and purposefully engaged. To this end, we strive for academic excellence through an enriched and creative curriculum, helping children to develop positive attitudes toward themselves and others and setting them on the path of life-long learning with the tools needed to succeed.

We hope that you will enjoy using our website and visit it often to find out more about how we are getting on with our learning journeys.
