A warm welcome to John Ruskin Primary School. John Ruskin is a friendly and welcoming school with a strong sense of community where everyone works together to ensure our children are happy and successful and reach their potential. At John Ruskin, we believe that children who are happy and feel safe are not afraid of making mistakes and are willing to challenge themselves.
Following a full OFSTED inspection in 2019, the school continued to be graded ‘outstanding’. The school has now been consistently graded outstanding by OFSTED and the local authority for the last 14 years.
We are very proud of John Ruskin pupils’ long history of high performance. Pupils at John Ruskin have been achieving well above the national average for the last 20 years and continued to do so in 2022!
On this website you will find lots of useful dates and information about the school and our school policies.

OUR OUTSTANDING NURSERIES
The government provides 15 hours per week of free nursery education for every child
We also offer full-time places. Some working parents are eligible for an additional 15 hours free nursery education (details can be found on the free childcare tab above). Please contact Jonathan Verity if you think you might be eligible for the additional 15 hours. Full-time places are also available for those children who are not eligible for the additional 15 hours for a weekly charge that provides outstanding teaching, learning and value for money. Our nursery staff are very experienced and are able to provide a stimulating, open, fun and engaging environment.
One Nursery, two sites
We offer the same outstanding nursery care across both our nurseries.

WE ARE GRADED ‘OUTSTANDING’ BY OFSTED!
The inspection report states:
“The school’s vision, ‘Be responsible, be fair, stay positive and care’, is borne out by the exemplary behaviour and attitudes of all the pupils in the school. They are polite and resilient, and take a pride in their school. The core values seek to ensure that your pupils have ambition, enjoy school and are successful learners. All members of staff understand your vision and demonstrate these values in their work.”

AFTER SCHOOL PROVISION
Our breakfast club and after school provision is provided by
Camberwell After School Provision (CASP).
Visit our Wraparound Childcare page
for more information about CASP.
ParentLine is a messaging service for parents and carers of school-aged children in Southwark and Lambeth. Parents and carers can message a school nurse to get confidential advice about their child’s health-related issues. School nurses work during school holiday periods, so you can get in touch then too.
Find out more about the service and confidentiality on the
Evelina London website.
More information can also be found in the
ParentLine School Nursing Service 2020 leaflet.
The ParentLine number is 07520 631 130. This is a text number only and cannot receive phone calls.
