Welcome To Guru Nnanak Schools

Our School:

At Guru Nanak Sikh Primary school we believe that it is our purpose to equip all our pupils for the future, through high expectations and quality learning in a caring Sikh environment.
  • To build a strong school based on the ideals of the Sikh faith.
  • To provide quality education that is broad, balanced and relevant to the needs of modern society.
  • To provide a caring, inclusive environment for learning in which individuals are valued and developed to meet their potential.
  • To encourage the development of self esteem, confidence, and independence in learning with a consideration for others that shows itself by a willingness to support those who are less fortunate.
  • To achieve at or above National standards in examinations.
  • To measure our overall success by the quality of our pupils’devotion to God, their humility, love of humanity, care and consideration for others.

Assessment

In May 2015 pupils in year 2 (30 pupils) and year 6 (32) pupils, took the end of key stage national tests. Level 2 is the level expected of seven year olds, level 4 is the level expected of eleven year olds. The table below shows the summaries of achievement compared with national levels of attainment.

Partners

We gratefully acknowledge the support of Discovery UK, the London fitness trainer courses company who, in 2014, donated the funds required for our new dance and gymnastics hall.

Over the year teachers assess pupils in their work on a daily basis. Teacher assessments do not necessarily match attainment shown in tests. Teacher assessments at Key Stage 1 were that 96% were working at level 2 in reading, 93% in writing and 96% in mathematics.

Important Information About The Admissions

Subject to available places, governors admit pupils matched against the criteria below:

  • Children living with parents/legal guardians/carers, who demonstrate a deep commitment to the Sikh faith. Evidence of this will be required through the completion of a self-evaluation religious questionnaire and a statement from the Priest of the Gurdwara.
  • Children living with parents/legal guardians/carers, at least one of whom attends worship at least three times per month in a Gurdwara, and has done so at least for three years.
  • Children living with parents/legal guardians/carers, at least one of whom attends worship monthly in the tradition of any faith other than Sikh. The frequency of the worship must be certified by the appropriate authorities. This certification will be used to establish priority within this criterion.
  • Children of families who live in the vicinity of the school.

Within each category, priority will be given to children in the following order:

  1. Children in Public Care/Looked After.
  2. Children with well-documented acute medical needs whom the governors believe would benefit from a place at the school.
  3. Children with brothers or sisters in the school who were admitted prior to Year 6. They should have a brother or sister attending the school at the time of the admission
  4. Distance from home.

Note. Distance is measured by the LA in a straight line from the school office to the child’s permanent home.

All places are offered directly from the London Borough of Hillingdon via the Admissions Team in the Civic Centre, Uxbridge. In September 2006, there were 102 applications from parents/carers for 60 places. 30 pupils were admitted under religious faith criteria, 11 pupils were admitted under sibling criteria, 19 children were admitted under distance criteria. Parents who are refused a school place have the right to appeal to an independent panel.

The governing body of Guru Nanak Sikh Primary School is responsible for nursery admissions. Please note that a place in a nursery class does not guarantee admission to the reception class.

The school will admit 30 pupils to the Nursery in the morning session and a further 30 pupils into the Nursery for the afternoon session.
