Parent Information  

Redhill Primary School (Community School) was opened by Rt. Hon. David Blunkett MP, Secretary of State for Education and Employment on 1st April 1998. We opened for the pupils on 27th April 1998. Our school is a larger than average primary school. It currently has 14 class bases, a large hall, sensory garden, wild life area, small forest school plot and a large playing field.
 
The school data indicates that 56.25% of the pupil population come from outside the school catchment area. 23% of our children (5’s and over) represent different ethnicities with 10% of pupils ( 5’s and over) speaking English as an additional language. The proportion of pupils with learning difficulties and/or disabilities is at 13%.The nature of these needs include moderate learning, dyslexia and behaviour. 6% of our children are claiming Free School meals. 7% of our pupils are from Service families and so often join and leave us mid- term. Our school logo and ethos reflect this diverse school community.
 
There is EYFS provision for children in Nursery and Reception, taking grant funded and fee paying sessions.  Provision is made before and after school for pupils aged 4 to 11 in the form of a breakfast and after school club, alongside a wide variety of after school clubs run by the school staff and outside providers.
 
The head teacher works closely with the Senior leaders to continually raise achievement and strive for excellence across the school.  The schools data has improved year on year, which reflects the schools high position in the league tables.
 
 
 
Our Mission
At Redhill Primary School we aim to develop the whole child and involve families and the community in our learning journey. During this time each child will acquire the skills, knowledge and values, hich will enable them to handle the complexity and diversity of the world today and in the future.
 
School Aims
To provide a happy, secure and safe environment where everyone feels valued and respected.
To create an atmosphere where children are comfortable in sharing their ideas and in respecting the ideas of others to become confident and competent learners.
To encourage all of our children to achieve their potential and follow their aspirations, by providing them with the necessary skills for the future.
To provide opportunities to become confident and competent: academically, socially and spiritually.
To make learning inspiring, challenging, fun and meaningful.
 
School Values
We value diversity and individuality and encourage acceptance of all within our inclusive community.
We respect positive relationships, which foster both independence and teamwork by encouraging full participation where everyone’s voice is heard.
We take pride in our work, our School and our community.
We celebrate our successes and learn from our mistakes.
 
Vision For The Next Five Years
We will have developed a dynamic governing body that is judged to be outstanding, that provides challenge, rigour and develops ambitious strategic plans.
We will sustain our focus on standards and personalised learning. We will ensure every child reaches their educational potential. Literacy and Numeracy will remain a priority to ensure standards remain high.
Continue to maximise each child's talents, whether it is a sporting, creative, artistic or an academic talent, we will continue to create a learning environment that both nurtures and provides opportunities for such talents to be recognised and celebrated. The creative arts and extracurricular provision are fundamental to the success of such an aim.
Continue to support the school in providing a curriculum offer that allows children to explore and challenge their own learning through creative and open-ended tasks.
Build on the strength of the school as a community where learning is a preparation for life.
We will be providing swift and easy access to on-line and school based learning resources and approaches for parents and carers.”
