  • An Inspector Calls - A Year 6 Production

    Published 19/07/17

    The end of the school year just wouldn’t be the same without a school show. This year, our amazing year sixes didn’t disappoint, staging a brilliant production of Andrew Oxspring’s An Inspector Calls. The play is centred around a school who, at the end of the year, and in the last week of the term, find themselves unfortunately receiving a last minute inspection. Chaos, panic and hilarity ensue as the staff and students aim to ‘pull up their socks’ and impress the inspectors.

  • Thank You For Making a Difference

She was nominated by one of our parents for her contribution to children with special needs, who wrote "Thank you for everything and the whole team - all of Ranelagh Primary School, for being understanding and caring."

  • Places of Worship Winners!

    Published 03/07/17


    Ranelagh has long been a proud member of Religion Matters, a programme that works in partnership with the borough to advise on the teaching and learning of religious education. One of the more excitement elements of the programme is the Places of Worship Art Competition, where over 80 schools across Newham submit religiously-themed artwork, inspired by a visit to a place of worship.

    Every child in our school is provided the opportunity to visit a different place of worship each year, celebrating different faiths. From Early Years to Year 6, children at Ranelagh visit a church, a mosque, a synagogue, a gurdwara, a mandir, a Buddhist temple and the Salvation Army. Drawing inspiration from their visits, and back in the classroom, the children reflect on what they learn. Their learning and the activities therein then compose some of the pieces that are then chosen to be entered for competition.

  • Ranelagh Hosts Spanish Visitors

    Published 29/06/17

    In June, Ranelagh played host to some very special guests who travelled all the way from Spain to learn about our school. Children from Las Salinas, our sister school from the sunny province of Almeria, in Southern Spain, were delighted to spend a week in our school observing lessons, speaking with staff and students, and exploring London.

    Las Salinas, located in the town of Roquetas de Mar, has been part of a cultural exchange with Ranelagh for a few years now, sharing practice and hosting students from each other’s schools for a unique educational experience.

    The visit began with their arrival on Monday afternoon. Famished and tired from a long flight, they were quickly whisked off to an evening meal along Green Street, taking in the sights and sounds of our local community. Curious and insightful, they enjoyed getting to know the staff and asking loads of questions about our school.

  • Parents Maths Mornings

    Published 23/06/17

    Who doesn’t love a bit of Maths? The parents of Ranelagh certainly do! All this week parents from across the school enjoyed taking part in different Maths activities and games with their children.

    Each classroom played host and had different activities and games that the parents dove into. Disha, in Year 5, revelled at the chance to beat both her parents in a game of ‘Fifteen,’ choosing three numbers to make a sum of 15 before her parents could, adding that “It was awesome to have my parents in the classroom with me doing Maths. I loved challenging them both and beating them a few times!”

  • Futures Day

    Published 12/06/17

    On the 9th of June, Ranelagh played host to over 30 professionals including State Street Global Advisors, ELBA (East London Business Alliance) and members of the Home Office,  who volunteered their time to speak to and inspire the children of our school. Sharing insight about their jobs and different careers, they answered an abundance of questions from bright-eyed and eager children, curious to learn about what it takes to be a fire fighter, or a police officer, or even a financial advisor!

    The children enjoyed discussing career paths and the requirements needed to attain certain jobs, as well as the in's and out's of so many different professions. Leaving the event inspired, Malachi in 6T8 commented, “It has inspired me and helped me to decide what I want to do in the future. I’ve really enjoyed speaking to so many adults about their jobs and I’m fascinated to know more.”
