At Ranelagh, we do not do something because, ‘that’s what we’ve always done’ or because, ‘that’s what everyone else is doing’. We do it because we believe there is a better way; a more effective way; that will make a greater impact on the lives of our children.
Our aim is to meet the needs of our pupils, helping them realise their potential and move with confidence into the next stage of their lives. We are a vibrant, creative and caring school, proudly reflecting the diversity of our community. Our curriculum is designed to engage, excite and encourage a love of learning. We believe that children learn best:
Our curriculum recognises children’s prior learning and builds progressively upon their knowledge and skills, whilst ensuring coverage of the statutory requirements of the National Curriculum 2014. We enrich our curriculum through themed days, visits, visitors and a range of extra-curricular clubs.
We want every child’s Ranelagh journey to provide a platform to build self-esteem, confidence and the skills to succeed in life. We use our Ranelagh Values (Caring ,Curious, Happy, Resilient, Resourceful) to promote positive attitudes to learning which reflect the values and skills needed to promote responsibility for learning and future success.
Community involvement is an integral part of our curriculum; we are all learners and learn from each other by sharing our values, experiences, knowledge and skills.
Our pupils are often taught in mixed age classes so our curriculum is designed over a two-year cycle.
