Black Lives Matter

At The Jenny Hammond Primary School we strive to promote equality and celebrate diversity in all its forms. We feel it is important to address and reflect the ongoing events across the world in response to George Floyd’s death, standing up and challenging racism and inequality at all levels.

We want you to know that we take the Black Lives Matter movement seriously, we acknowledge what has happened and whilst we have been having discussions with our children and staff we will be continuing the work hard with our school community to raise awareness, challenge discrimination and support ‘Change.’ 

Please take the time to read the letter in the link below where you will find more information and a chance to take part in a Black Lives Matter competition, sponsored by The National Education Union (NEU), the largest education union in Europe. The competition is part of the special launch of the 100 Great Black Britons campaign created by Patrick Vernon OBE to celebrate the continued legacy and achievements of Black people in Britain.

Parent's Guide to Black Lives Matter

Welcome to The Jenny Hammond Primary School.             

We know that your child and your family will be happy members of our school community.
The Jenny Hammond Primary School is a small, multicultural community school situated in the southern part of Waltham Forest. Our school comprises children and adults of different faiths and cultures who work happily together.
Our school is named after Jenny Hammond who was Mayor of Leyton from 1942-43. She was an active councillor for 35 years and campaigned for just causes throughout her life. The causes that she particularly fought for were those that would benefit the welfare of the local community in Waltham Forest. Jenny Hammond was chair of the Education Committee for 17 consecutive years. She lived close to the school and made regular visits to what were then Cann Hall Infant and Junior schools. She died in her nineties having done much for the communities she served.
Our school is housed in a Victorian building and newly built fantastic teaching and learning spaces completed in 2017. At present the school has 390 children with an intake of 60 children in our Reception classes, Year 1, Year 2, Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5. We become a complete 2 form entry school in September 2021.
At The Jenny Hammond Primary School, we see education as an ongoing process and one that is very much a partnership between school and home. We feel proud to have the exciting task of joining with parents in their children’s development.
Providing a child-centred philosophy we treat each child as an individual. Children are organised to work with Learning Partners, small groups, individually or as members of the whole class depending on the activity.
Ofsted had a very positive visit to our school in May 2017 commenting:
‘The Jenny Hammond Primary School is a good school. Adults have high expectations for pupils in terms of behaviour and outcomes. Pupils are enthusiastic, confident learners who work hard and do their best. There is a highly positive climate for learning evident across the school.’
The most important people at Jenny Hammond are the children. We look forward to receiving the support of parents and to working with them to help all the children realise their full potential.

Our children have had to endure a change in their lifetime that we did not foresee or ever think would happen with the presence of Covid-19. They have had to be brave, resilient and deal with emotions that have challenged us as parents in order to see them through. Our children are curious, articulate and challenge when they think there is an injustice and now our children are talking and questioning why Racism still exists and what they could do to make a positive change.

We are always very proud of our children at Jenny Hammond and we are bursting with pride with the knowledge that they along with their parents, have decided to be proactive in making a change. 

Albert, Dhilan, Stanley, Elea along with the rest of their friends want to be part of the change that sees the end systemic racism. They have been learning about racism and what that actually means, been talking to their friends and feeling the injustice. 

They have taken their love of Roblox Piggy to create character heads and their love of baking to create yummy treats to raise some money for the BLM foundation. At the weekend, they went to Wanstead Flats and set up a stall and managed to raise £99. They then set up a Just Giving page and they have now raised a staggering amount of £350.

Please support by donating to https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/blmtoalbertdhilanstanleyelea

The proceeds will be going to BLM and Manhood Academy, a London based charity that aims to raise the attainment of black boys, offers 121 coaching and mentoring, and urban rites of passage.
