About Plumberow Primary Academy

This is a GOOD school ... a rising number of parents choose to send their children to Plumberow ... there is a strong family atmosphere and relationships between pupils and staff are excellent ...Plumberow still has the community spirit of a small school .. Ofsted Report March '14

Plumberow is a large primary with 647 pupils on roll. It is part of a cluster of four primaries in the Hockley/Hawkwell area and it is also linked to the Rayleigh cluster of schools. Plumberow Academy is adjacent to Greensward Academy and there is good liaison between the two establishments, with many benefits for our pupils.

Pupils are accommodated in the two main school buildings (Blue and White School) which are separated by the playground area. Classrooms are spacious and well resourced, in addition there is a large playing field, two halls and an outdoor swimming pool. The site and buildings are well maintained and provide a safe and attractive environment for both children and staff.

We have developed areas within the grounds, including a pond, a quiet area near the playground and a garden area. Plumberow expanded during 2000, with four additional classrooms, a library and a computer suite being completed. In keeping with the Primary philosophy, there are Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 pupils in both buildings.
