Our School

Headteacher’s Welcome   

I am the Headteacher of Maple Primary School.  I joined the school in January 2001.

I consider it to be a great privilege to be the Headteacher of such a busy, vibrant and successful school.  Every member of my team is committed to creating a happy, stimulating and safe learning environment for our children.

Over the past few years we have significantly increased the number and variety of lunchtime and after-school clubs available to the pupils; we have improved the quality of our PE curricular provision; and last year, with significant financial support from the PTA, we installed an all-weather running track around the perimeter of the field so that all the pupils can take part in daily running exercise, with the oldest pupils running a mile a day.

In the Summer Term 2014, the school received a successful re-accreditation for the ICT Mark; and in October 2016 the school received its second successful re-accreditation for the Eco-Schools Green Flag Award. 

Another recent external re-accreditation was the School Games Award Silver Mark in September 2016 – in recognition of the significant improvements that have taken place to both our curricular and extra-curricular physical education provision over the last three years.

In addition to Computing, Sustainability and Physical Education, the school has a really strong Musical ethos and tradition.  The Infants Christmas and Upper Juniors end of Summer Term musical productions are of a very high standard; and may children learn to play a variety of musical instruments.  Each Spring Term the Junior Choir sings as part of a massed choir at a Young Voices Concert at the O2 Arena; and in 2016 the choir performed at a Hertfordshire Schools’ Gala Concert at The Royal Albert Hall.
