Nanaksar Primary School
Nanaksar Primary School brings more school places to meet the significant local demands and new choices for parents in the south of Hillingdon and nearby Ealing. It will be an all through primary (reception to Year 6). The brand new school will be situated in Springfield Road, Hayes, near to Guru Nanak Sikh Academy. Nanaksar Primary School will hugely benefit from the experience of the Principal of Guru Nanak who will be the Principal Designate of the new school. Discussions on the design of the new buildings are underway with the Department for Education.
The school will open in September 2013 with 4 Reception classes of 30 children each making a year group of 120. Each year an additional year of entry will be admitted until the school reaches its full complement in September 2019. The school has an admission number of 120 and will admit all children who apply. If over subscribed, the school will allocate 60 places to Sikh children and 60 to those of other faiths or of no faith that live nearest the school. If the 60 places allocated to Sikh children are not taken up then more places would be allocated to those of other faiths or no faith. Correspondingly, if the 60 places allocated to those of other faiths or no faith are not taken up then more Sikh children would be admitted.
Our aim is to build a strong school community based on the principles of Sikhism, honesty, hard work and service to others. We will expect our pupils to put back into society the advantages they will gain from their high achievement in our school. Nanaksar Primary will be a flagship school of high attainment with pupils who learn that humility and helping others is a strength and that all religions should be respected.
Excellent teaching and learning will be achieved through following the National Curriculum with an emphasis on literacy and numeracy. Pupils will also engage with the International Primary Curriculum and a wide range of enrichment activities.
