Our most recent VIP awards have gone to:

Skarlett (Chestnut) - for always being kind, thoughtful and caring towards everyone. She is a supportive and encouraging learning partner who is always polite and helpful.

Georgia (Fir) - for the kindness she shows to others. She has a thoughtful nature, beautiful manners and is friendly to everyone. Georgia displays an excellent attitude towards learning and takes pride and care with all aspects of her work. 

Hannah (Oak) - who has been recognised for being consistently hard working, polite, helpful and kind. She is an excellent role model and a delight to have in Oak class!

Ollie (Fir) - who demonstrates an excellent attitude to learning. He is a kind and thoughtful learning patner who stays focussed and on task.

Amy M (Elm) - who treats everyone with respect. She is thoughtful and consistently kind to others. Amy always endeavours to produce her best work and should be incredibly proud of the standard of work she achieves. She is a real delight to have in class and all adults who have been teaching her have noticed her for her efforts!

Keeley-Rose (Fir) - has been recognised for being an excellent learning partner and showing kindness to all.  She is a thoughtful friend and is an excellent role model in the way that she follows the school rules. Keeley-Rose always completes tasks to the best of her ability.

Molly (Beech) - is a great asset to her class. She is always enthusiastic and keen to learn and puts 100% effort into all of her work. Molly is always kind and caring towards her peers, is a supportive learning partner and is helpful around the classroom.

Ella (Fir) - has been recognised for being an excellent role model in the classroom. She is caring, thoughtful and always ready to help when needed. Ella takes her learning seriously and applies a hard working approach.

Ellie-Mae (Elm) - has been recognised for the support she offered during the girls football tournament last week. She was such an encouragement to others, picking up players who were down and reassuring them if they had not scored or not saved a goal. This thoughtfulness to others was a pleasure to see, thank you Ellie-Mae.


Our School has valued accreditations

What parents are saying about us

Shawley is a caring environment where every child is known to all, even from the early days of the Reception year. The older children are taught to respect the little ones; the little ones know and trust the older ones. Personal and emotional development, as well as academic progression, are intrinsic to the success of this warm, secure school which, although located in the heart of Epsom Downs, retains a "village-like" feel.

John & Glynis Wheeler, Parents

Shawley has given our son the best possible start in school life. All the teachers throughout the school seem to have a real passion and enthusiasm for teaching. The school has an enthusiastic and thriving Fundraising Committee, consistently striving to raise funds for extra equipment and facilities for the children.

Charlotte Elson, Parent

Both my children really enjoy coming to school. They are excited to learn new things and find their classes both interesting and challenging. As a parent, I feel the staff at al levels are helpful, friendly and approachable. My whole family loves Shawley Community Primary School!
