Dame Tipping Church of England Primary School is situated in the village of Havering-atte-Bower.  It has a very attractive outlook over farmland and countryside.

The present school building has been extended at various times since then.  The school has close links with the parish church of St. John the Evangelist, reflected in its Voluntary Controlled status.

Dame Tipping C.E. Primary School caters for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 11. It has the capacity for 105 pupils: 15 in each year group.  The Year 2 class has 15 pupils and the rest of the school is organised into vertically grouped classes of 30:Reception and Year 1 , Class 3 and 4 and Class 5 and 6.

The school became part of the LIFE Education Trust in September 2018.

We encourage our parents to leave feedback on Parent View, an Ofsted website that shows reviews of UK schools.
