A Message from the Headteacher

Every child is entitled to a good education, with equal access to knowledge, skills, opportunities, aspirations, diversity and life chances. Your child deserves the very best from this school and we will seek to provide this in many ways, the most important of which are consistently  well-taught lessons taken from a well-planned curriculum, in an environment where the well-being, happiness and safety of every child is paramount. Teachers and school staff cannot do this on their own. When a school community does this together excellent results can be achieved. This includes parents and carers supporting their children at home, by encouraging learning, good behaviour, and high expectations. With this community effort you can see your children reach their full potential.

On behalf of the staff, governors and most importantly the children, I would like to warmly welcome you to our friendly and successful school that is at the heart of our local community in Edgware, in the London Borough of Harrow.

Stag Lane Infant and Nursery School is proud to be a newly expanded four form entry school with a large nursery.  The new extension and internal building works currently taking place will provide much improved teaching spaces with five new classrooms, a Studio, larger playgrounds/sport spaces, improved kitchen and a new Welfare room.

We celebrate being a school that teaches children from a very wide range of abilities and backgrounds. In addition, we are privileged to be a national designated Teaching School leading the Harrow Teaching School Alliance.

Our large and diverse infant and nursery school, with its many different languages, cultures and religions, works effectively together to provide a very wide range of exciting, learning opportunities for all our children, in an energetic, happy and caring environment.

At Stag Lane, we inspire and nurture lifelong learners through effective teaching and learning whilst at the same time providing rich and truly enjoyable experiences. Our school motto is Forever Learners: Achieving our dreams.

I am really proud of our school and I hope you enjoy finding out more about us by browsing our website. Please come and see for yourself what our school has to offer. Contact our friendly office staff to make an appointment.
