We believe everyone has the right to learn, to respect and to be safe.

Everyone is entitled to be regarded with dignity, fairness and respect.  
We strive to ensure that our school enshrines the values which Jesus taught us.

We are situated in the London borough of Southwark.  

We are a small, one form entry primary school supported by the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education.  

Our motto is Faith, Family and Fascination.

We hope you manage to find what you are looking for and enjoy learning a little about some of the things that happen in our school.

Safer Internet:
Each year, we mark Safer Internet Week with a range of activities to raise awareness and provide information about how to stay safe online. We would ask that parents take this opportunity to talk to their children about how to stay safe online. Please see our website here for links to useful parental resources.
Parents and Carers, please ensure that all your children's school uniform is clearly labelled.  
Our lost property box is filling up with brand new, un-named clothing!

Carnival is coming! Friday 19th October is Boutcher Carnival! Please think join us to celebrate in the afternoon - our thank yous in advance for remembering donations of food and drinks for our post-parade and concert tea!

We would like to remind you that we don't allow any children to scoot or ride their bicycles in the playground.
We have a small space with lots of children in it and it is dangerous. Thank you.

Boutcher strongly encourage families to take holiday during school holidays. Holiday absence requests will only be granted in exceptional circumstances. Our school policy is that parents may request a holiday if there is an exceptional circumstance. This request must be put in writing as a letter to the Head Teacher, at least 2 weeks before, fully explaining the reason for the request. 

The Head Teacher will consider each request carefully and will look at the child's attendance over the last 12 months. Permission for absence will only be granted in exceptional circumstances, when the reason for request is very clear. 

ILLNESS - Call Boutcher C of E Primary School on 020 7237 2147 (absence line), press option 1 and leave a message stating the name, class and reason. 
Please remember: if your child has been sick or suffered from diahhroea, they should not return to school for 48 hours.
