Welcome to Gwyn Jones Primary School & Nursery
Gwyn Jones is a happy and successful school located in Leytonstone, East London. We are a growing school and will be two form entry across the school by 2016. Pupils at Gwyn Jones come from a variety of ethnic and cultural backgrounds. We have the highest expectations and aspirations for all our pupils. We offer a broad and balanced curriculum enabling children to develop academically, creatively, physically, emotionally and socially.
High quality relationships and good behaviour are at the centre of everything we do. Children and adults in our school have relationships built on trust and respect. Children are taught to get along well together. This is why the school has the ‘great community’ atmosphere that visitors speak so highly of.
We recognise the importance of parents and carers as partners in their children's education and are proud of the relationship we have with parents and carers. We ask that parents or carers encourage and support their children's learning by reading with them regularly and talking to them about the world in which we live. We have an active parent-teacher association (PTA).
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and if we can be of any further help, please feel free to contact us or arrange a visit to our school.
Parent Questionaire 2014-15...
Thank you to everybody who returned their parent questionnaire at the end of last term.
Responses have been very positive; more than 95% of parents think that Gwyn Jones is a happy, safe and welcoming school and 99% of parents said that their children were happy in school.
Your responses told us that we need to continue to improve communication and that appropriate challenge in children's learning is an area for further development.
Please follow this link to look at the outcomes of the questionnaire.
What Gwyn Jones Means To Me
The School Council and Mrs Clark were involved in an exciting project creating a short film with Jez Lee (Safia's dad). The School Council decided what areas of the school and activities needed to be filmed and created storyboards showing their ideas.
The School had a competition called "What Gwyn Jones means to me" and 7 winners were picked and filmed saying what the school meant to them. It snowed on the day of the filming and so some of the filming ideas needed to be changed but we all had lots of fun!

Extensive links with other schools, parental contributions to the curriculum and visits to local places of worship enhance pupils awareness of the community
