The Curriculum




Currently Kaizen Primary School is closed until further notice. We have a Childcare Hub in place at Gainsborough Primary School in West Ham. This is available for the children of key workers, children with SEND & EHCPs and children with social care support. If you feel your child qualifies for this childcare please call us on: 07904 862881. 

Dear Parents and Carers,

We wish you a very warm welcome to our school and are honoured you have chosen our school for your child’s education. Kaizen Primary School is a very dynamic place to learn. We value learning through experience; learning core skills in ways that are memorable and enable the children to apply these skills in all aspects of life. We very much value children as leaders of themselves, others and valuable contributors to the local community.

Our very special school, deserves a special name – hence Kaizen. It’s a Japanese word, which means making continuous improvement to your life by putting effort in every day. We talk to the children every day about their continuous learning journey. Each day is an important one as they take small steps towards big dreams.  Kaizen is an Eko School benefiting from the challenge and support that the Trust provides.

Learning is central to everything at Kaizen even our class names, Smiles, Chuckles, Discover, Explore, Voyage, Adventure, Challenge, Investigate, Curiosity, Inquisitive, Innovation, Inspiration, Engage, Endeavour, Wisdom and Wonder, tell you what learning is like here.

The curriculum at Kaizen motivates the children to ask questions, see connections between things and enables the children be self-reflective about the world around them. With these high levels of engagement and the outstanding levels of care and support the children receive, means the children achieve the highest possible standards. 

This was recognised when we achieved our Outstanding grade from Ofsted in June 2015. We have since gone on to become a National Teaching School which means we can both spread our great practice to other schools and learn from them too. This makes sure we keep our practice the very best it can be.

We have a wide range of after school clubs on offer too, as well as Breakfast Club and After School Club. As well as supporting working parents and those in full time education this provision enables children to build wider social links in the safe environment of school.

We are all passionate that children develop a life-long love of learning and are looking forward to working in partnership with you. Come and see us and begin our journey together to achieve amazing things.
