Purley Partnership is a Federation of Christ Church School and Purley Nursery School.
Purley Nursery School is open from 8am to 6pm year round, to all in the community. Funded by Croydon Local Authority, Purley Nursery School offers 160 places, including some integrated education and care places, for 2-, 3- and 4-year-olds and a range of provision to support families within the community.
Christ Church School is a voluntary aided (VA) Church of England primary school with a strong Christian ethos. It is maintained by the London Borough of Croydon and supported by the Southwark Diocesan Board of Education. The school admits 60 pupils each year. There are currently 419 pupils on roll, aged 4 to 11 years.
Both schools provide a warm, stimulating, welcoming environment which gives a secure foundation for all children to become happy, confident, caring individuals who achieve personal success and develop a lifelong love of learning.
The two schools federated to become Purley Partnership Federation in 2017. As part of the Federation, both schools retain their identity, their name, school budget and have their own Ofsted and, where applicable, Church School inspections. There is one Governing Body which has joint responsibly for both schools. The federation is therefore a true partnership as governors and school staff work to secure the interests of the schools together.
