Welcome to Renhold VC Primary School
Andrea Ward: Headteacher
On behalf of the children, staff and governors I am delighted to welcome you to the Renhold VC Primary School website.
I am very proud to be the Headteacher of this Outstanding school. Our children, families, staff and governors work in close partnership to create enriching learning opportunities, which ensure each and every pupil leave us at the end of Year 6 ready to relish the challenges of secondary education.
The ethos of the school is based on Christian values alongside good manners and hard work. We have very high expectations of behaviour at Renhold. Visitors often comment on the calm atmosphere and good relationships which are so important to us.
Our curriculum aims to encourage children to develop the skills they need for later life, with a very strong focus on the basic skills of English and maths which have been externally accredited through the Basic Skills Award. We track pupils progress very carefully and make sure everyone knows what the next steps for learning are. Our curriculum also covers much wider areas of learning and we offer numerous enrichment activities, such as clubs and visits. We work very hard at Renhold, but we also believe that learning should be fun. Children are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning and to develop skills which will make them better learners.
We believe in providing an exciting, broad and balanced curriculum. Recently we were awarded the Primary Science Quality Mark Gold Award and science is a favourite subject amongst the children. We are also a creative school and have been awarded the Artsmark Silver Award. Our children take part in a variety of drama performances throughout the year. As well as our own specialist teachers, we have specialist teachers of art and music who regularly visit the school to work with our children. Sport is also a strength of the school; we have been awarded the School Games Gold Award 3 years in a row. Our sports teams have achieved considerable success. We take part in lots of interschool sports such as football, netball, rugby and athletics and everybody is encouraged to join in and have fun.
We are an inclusive school and we know all our pupils really well. Every single child matters at Renhold and we value children for all their different strengths and qualities. Feedback from pupil, staff and parent questionnaires is overwhelmingly positive.
We are all very proud to be part of the Renhold family and always welcome visitors to our school so you can see our learning in action. Contact details are below:
