Welcome to CPD Schools Federation. I am so glad to have started my role as Executive Headteacher of our wonderful Newham schools (Central Park Primary, E6 3DW and Dersingham Primary E12 5QJ). It has been great getting to know pupils, staff and parents at Dersingham. We started the year off with a joint INSET session that has really set the scene for our partnership.


The two schools formalised into a federation – The CPD Schools Federation – on 1st June 2018. Whilst both schools work closely together they still maintain their own identity. The Federation continues to carry on in its journey towards outstanding outcomes for both schools. Every child's education and development is of the utmost importance to us.


Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision. We aim for all the pupils at both schools to enjoy their time at primary school in a safe environment. We are a well-resourced schools and aim for our children to become life-long learners. We are happy schools with a dedicated, hardworking staff team to bring out the best in every individual in our care and instil in each pupil a real sense of belonging in order to help them to become responsible, respectful and tolerant citizens of the future.


We are proud of our innovative, broad and balanced curriculums. This year we are further developing our curriculums to be more values led and continue to reflect our communities. Our aim is to ensure that we support pupils to grow academically, socially and emotionally to ensure they are keen to learn and succeed. We aim to ensure that all pupils have as many opportunities as possible to experience a wide range of cultures and be involved in the local community.


We are lucky to work in such great communities who are proud of their schools. We are always pleased to welcome visitors and will always be happy to show you around our schools. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Welcome to our school website. I hope the website will provide you with as much information as possible about our school. It was wonderful to see all the children return to school. Everyone at Dersingham has returned with a positive attitude and have taken all the new arrangements in their stride. 

I am now in the process of updating the school website and ensuring all the information you need is in one centralised place. 

The following updates can be found by click 'School Reopening 2020' on our website:

  • Dersingham Primary School Risk Assessment – please note that this assessment has been quality assured by officers of the London Borough of Newham. 
  • Visitor Information Leaflet under COVID-19
  • Our Recovery Strategy Plan 
  • Our Remote Learning Plan (in the event of a lockdown or having to dissolve a bubble)
  • A flow chart of procedures in the event of a pupil/ staff presenting symptoms of COVID-19
  • Our Updated staff list for 2020-2021

Although our school staff will not always be readily on hand for face-to-face conversations at the moment, we aim to maintain the high standard of communication between home and school that you expect from us. Please use our dedicated parent email parentcomm@dersingham.newham.sch.uk or phone the Office if you have any queries and the relevant member of staff will get back to you as soon as possible.

Even though it is not quite "business as usual" in terms of arriving and leaving school at the moment, I can assure you that Teaching and Learning is very much our core purpose inside the classrooms. All our staff at Dersingham have been working very hard during the Summer term to plan and prepare an exciting curriculum for the children.  We have made sure that we are prepared for "blended learning" in case any class has to continue learning at home during any period of isolation or absence at short notice.

Thank you for your ongoing support, your partnership with the school is invaluable.
