At The Heart of our Community
Ranelagh prides itself on being the heart of the community. Our Community Cohesion Leader, Mrs Aisha Sheikh, has formed many outstanding links with the local community. Ranelagh has organised and developed programmes to ensure parents, carers and stakeholders are working in partnership for this remarkable school.
Partnership with SSCO Cumberland Sports Programme
We have currently developed a successful partnership with the Cumberland sports programme which follows the government’s sports strategy. Children are benefiting from skills in fencing, basketball, football, cricket and badminton.
Partnership with NASSA
We are also working closely with Newham All Star Sports Academy. Year 5 and 6 have been trained in basketball skills. Children have been coached by Chris Facey (coach of the year) London awards for sport and physical activity 2014.
East London Business Alliance
At Ranelagh we thrive on our successful partnerships with outside agencies. Over the last six years, we have built a successful partnership with ELBA. Volunteers from leading companies in Canary Wharf dedicate time to read with our children, offer money management workshops (Barclays) and have developed team building skills through many activities at the school (HSBC, Duetche Bank). Teams have been planting bulbs in the playground, resurfacing areas of the playground, painting and decorating and supporting successful school events. ELBA has continued to support us in our school fairs and have volunteered support and donated prizes to the raffle stall.
Ranelagh Community Fairs
Ranelagh celebrates excellence through providing a fun filled fair each summer and winter. The fairs are attended by over 400 people and have a range of activities to offer to the local community. There are fairground rides, stalls, a café, games and even student led business enterprise projects on offer. Year 6 recently raised money for a global charity. They successfully created a small business and then donated profits to the charity. We also have links to many local businesses and health organisations in East London who continually support our fairs by donating prizes and information stalls to our community.
