Welcome from the Headteacher

 Dear Parents

 Welcome to our exciting and informative   Brandling Primary School website. We hope you find this interesting and useful. 

Brandling Primary School has been an oasis in the heart of the community in Felling for over 100 years.  In May 2016 Ofsted judged us to be Outstanding in all areas.  Have a look at our Ofsted report on the link below.

At Brandling Primary school we believe everyone should be supported to reach their full potential, enjoy their learning and develop the skills they need to be successful in their life.  We have high expectations of our children and encourage a can do culture.

The breadth and balance of our curriculum and ethos promotes life in modern Britain. We work hard to nurture our children so they grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British society and the world.   Our PSHE, Citizenship and SMSC work adds to all this work.

Children are educated in a creative, stimulating and rich environment. Our caring and nurturing staff have high expectations of all pupils academically, socially and personally to ensure good progress in all areas.  If you would like your child to come to our school please contact the office for further details.


Browse through our website we’re sure you’ll enjoy it.


Mrs K. L. Carr (Head Teacher)


 Our results for the last five years,  have put us amongst the top 3% of schools in England in terms of  the progress our pupils make between key stage 1 and the end of key stage 2 in reading, writing and maths. in addition, all of our pupils were working at the expected standard in all three subjects, reading, writing and maths in 2019.    Look  at our fantastic letters from the Minister of State for School Standards to congratulate our staff and pupils for the very high level of progress pupils in our school are making.
