Head Teacher’s Welcome

"We believe in a No Excuses culture that ensures that all barriers to learning are removed."

Welcome to Randal Cremer Primary School.

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 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:











Statement from headteachers

As Hackney Headteachers, we jointly affirm our full commitment and continued action to the best possible safeguarding of every child in our care, ensuring a safeguarding first approach always applies.

We know that we have already been doing work to eliminate racism in our schools, but recognise that there is much work to be done. We recognise that Black and Global Majority children face racism in Hackney and beyond: we are committed to and will act on taking forward anti-racist practice.

In Hackney we are ambitious, caring and inclusive in working for every child. As educationalists we will work jointly, with our children, their families, our staff and with other professionals, particularly with our Black and Global Majority stakeholders, in building on the strong work already in our schools, towards being a beacon of excellence in inclusion and anti-racism.

We are committed to revisiting staff training and guidance to ensure that all staff:

  • feel confident that their duty to safeguard the children in our care comes above any other need,
  • understand, and are able to counteract, any assumptions or actions that may lead to children being treated unfairly or unjustly
  • are able to act to protect children in crisis as if they were our own, seeking senior leader support if needed.

We are committed to supporting and challenging each other to ensure this happens.



Hackney Teaching Schools’ Alliance

The Hackney Teaching Schools’ Alliance is a supportive partnership of primary, secondary and specialist schools, each with a proven track record of successful improvement.

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.
