Head Teacher’s Welcome"We believe in a No Excuses culture that ensures that all barriers to learning are removed."
We are a 2 form entry Primary School, serving a diverse community in Hackney, London. We are proud of the diversity of our children and their families, and we recognise that all children are unique. We will do all that we can to ensure that our children are able to succeed in the rapidly changing 21st Century and that they will be able to make a valuable contribution to society.
We believe passionately in ensuring that all pupils who attend Randal Cremer leave the school able to excel academically and socially through the provision of high-quality education and a commitment to inspiring all members of our school community to take shared responsibility for themselves and other people.
We believe in a No Excuses culture that ensures that all barriers to learning are removed. We are committed to our 5 core values:
High Expectations: fostering the love of learning and achievement by working hard to ensure that everyone achieves their best outcomes through getting to know and understand one another and approaching all that we do with commitment, perseverance and passion.
Teamwork: working collaboratively and in partnership with parents, pupils, staff, the wider community and other schools to ensure that no child is ever overlooked or left behind.
Love: providing a caring, compassionate warm welcoming and nurturing environment where everyone feels a sense of belonging and is willing to work hard without fear of failure to achieve the very best they can.
Diversity, Inclusion, Equality: where unfairness, inequality, prejudice and discrimination is challenged and providing equitable life chances for all our pupils drives the decisions that we make.
Respect: treating everyone with courtesy, fairness and respect and taking the time to actively listen and respond positively to all members of our community.
We have a dedicated team of teachers and support staff and provide a wealth of learning opportunities for all our pupils. We believe that all our pupils should receive high quality education that ensures they enter Secondary School able to access learning through performing at age expected levels in reading, writing and mathematics. We also believe that music, arts, science, computing and sports are also vital if pupils are to be engaged in learning and motivated to achieve the very best they can.
We welcome visits to the school and also run parents workshops throughout the year.
We hope you are interested in finding out more about Randal Cremer Primary School and look forward to welcoming you in person in the near future.
In June 2019 we were delighted that Randal Cremer had been selected to be part of the Mayor Of London’s Schools for Success programme in recognition of the progress our pupils make.
Here is the letter we received from the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan:

Our alliance is steered by an exectutive board comprised of four schools, two of which are national teaching schools; Clapton Girls’ Academy and Kingsmead Primary school. Along with Stormont House (National Support School) and Millfields Community School, we work to improve the quality of teaching and leadership through effective collaboration and personalised support.
