Selwyn is a happy and successful school located in Plaistow, East London. We are at the heart of this culturally rich community where we are able to offer purposeful and exciting learning opportunities for all.

Everyone within our learning community has high aspirations and we work hard to make learning fun and relevant to each individual. We all have high expectations of behaviour and this has created a wonderfully positive and calm environment where everyone is respected and treated fairly.

I hope that you find the website useful. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any additional information. Visits to the school are always very welcome.

Head Teacher


After school clubs finish on Friday 27th March and will resume in the new term.

We break up on Thursday 2nd April and return to school on Monday 20th April. I wish you all a very happy and relaxing holiday and if you celebrate, a very Happy Easter time.

We are delighted to announce that Selwyn Primary School was judged as 'Outstanding' in all areas as a result of our Ofsted inspection in October 2014. This outcome is testament to our wonderfully cohesive school community and the hard work and dedication from all. A full copy of the report can be viewed here.
