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.  

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.

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.
