Welcome to our school

This page was last updated in August 2018

Selwyn is a happy and successful school located in Plaistow, East London. We are at the heart of this culturally rich community where we are able to offer purposeful and exciting learning opportunities for all.

Everyone within our learning community has high aspirations and we work hard to make learning fun and relevant to each individual. We all have high expectations of behaviour and this has created a wonderfully positive and calm environment where everyone is respected and treated fairly.  

This emphasis on a happy, calm and focused learning environment ensures that our children can progress and achieve their potential.  

Finally, we are an open, outward looking school, always keen to hear from our children and our parents - both on an ad-hoc, informal basis, and in a more structured way, to ensure that all voices are heard.  To this end, we conducted surveys with both these groups, as well as with staff, in May 2018.  The output from this exercise is published in the document available to download on this page.

We hope that you find the website useful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you require any additional information, or wish to make arrangements to visit us.
