Our grief is secondary to Martin’s wife, children, siblings and extended family and to his close friends for whom this loss is immeasurable. We extend our sincere condolences to them and they will remain uppermost in our minds in the forthcoming days and weeks.


This has come as a terrible shock to us all. We are heartbroken to have lost such a gifted, kind and popular Headteacher who has had such a profound impact on the lives of the children and colleagues in all the schools in which he has worked.


It is with great sorrow that we announce the very sad news that Mr Beard, our Headteacher passed away on Friday 17 January.

Some of the year 7 and 8 “Toyota Dream Car” competition entries . Creative, imaginative, and many designed to help save the earth 🌍 🖼 🎨 fingers crossed for our students!


Students arrive for 8.30 and then lesson starts at 8.45am. Prevents lateness and allows a prompt start to period 1 - thank you for asking . 😊

Looking forward to welcoming our lovely students back to school tomorrow - 8.30am, correct uniform and equipment please.

Excellent quick guide to social networks, apps and games. Useful for parents and carers to discuss and share with their children.

Each student created fabric poppies in school to lay at Merstham Memorial today. We were joined by The British legion & members of the local community for a service & 2 minutes silence. The students made us proud. “We will remember them”.

Merstham Park School recognises our moral and statutory responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all students. We endeavour to provide a safe and welcoming environment where children are respected and valued. We are alert to the signs of abuse and neglect and follow our procedures to ensure that children receive effective support, protection and justice. Child protection forms part of our safeguarding responsibilities.

Merstham Park School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.

This means that we have a Child Protection & Safeguarding Policy and procedures in place; these can be viewed on our website under the our school/policies section.  All staff (including supply staff, volunteers and governors) must ensure that they are aware of these procedures. 

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a student’s welfare.  We will ensure that our concerns about our students are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the student’s welfare.

If you are concerned about a child’s welfare, please record your concern, and any observations or conversations heard, and report to one of the Designated Safeguarding Leads as soon as possible the same day.  Do NOT conduct your own investigation.

If your concerns relate to the actions or behaviour of a member of staff (which could suggest that s/he is unsuitable to work with children) then you should report this to one of the DSLs in confidence, who will refer the matter to the Headteacher or the Chair of Governors if the concern relates to the Headteacher, who will consider what action to take.
