  • Sports Day

    Published 20/07/21

    Each Year, the children and adults don their House colours and show their competitive spirit and their sense of fairplay at Ranelagh's Sports Day — postponed last year, Ranelagh had  to have 3 Sports Days this year to keep in line with government guidelines. 

    Children had a magnificent time and there was a real sense that things may be getting back to 'usual'. 

    The traditional egg and spoon race (badminton racquet and foam ball !), javelin hurdles were amongst some of the sports day activities. Points were given for winning(obviously) and for fair play. Competing is a real chance to develop resilient strategies — because not everyone can be a winner.

    'It was wonderful children taking in a deep breath and painting a smile on their fce when they lost' said Miss Welburn.

    A huge thank you to Miss Tessier and Mr Jordan for organising this successful event. They will be announcing the winners in our final assembly of the year.

  • "Ranelagh Primary School represents all that is best about inclusive practice," director of IQM.

    Published 24/03/21

    ‘ It is abundantly clear that school and parents together have created an exceptionally strong partnership’ the words of Joe McCann , a director of Inclusion Quality Mark in his report which awarded Ranelagh flagship status for inclusion for a third consecutive year. Eventhough, we have had a year like no other our ethos of inclusion runs through the veins of our School and community. 

             Year 6 teaching Year 1 Phonics
    An incredibly strong PTA support the school

    The report states,  ‘ The school is valued by its community and parents and children have great trust and confidence in their staff who strive to ensure that they can “Be the best that they can be”.’ 

    Our outstanding highly successful and inclusive practice could not have been achieved without the amazing leadership of Mrs Patel, Mrs Chowdhury and Miss McDonald - our Inclusion team. Their tireless promotion of excellent practice - supporting teachers, children and parents - is the inspiration to be better. As the report says, ‘ there is a driving passion to support and a high aspiration for all pupils and parents. ‘

    Supporting Each Other - Although an inner- city school , Ranelagh is a Forest School

    Mrs Lawrenson, the head teacher, said , ‘ This is an incredibly important accolade , especially in these times. We have all needed to lean on each other to get through the year . But we have never lost sight of the future and what our community can bring to that future - kindness, bravery and resilience.’  It is this which drives our inclusive practice. Each individual in our community no matter whether parent, governor, teacher deserve the opportunity to have their voice heard , participate positively in society and make the future that we all want for our children. 

    All the children performing to their parents

     The report began with ‘ Ranelagh Primary School represents all that is best about inclusive practice.'  We hope that our voice, our community’s voice and our children’s voice will be heard and the inclusive future in which Ranelagh trails is one in which all the children from Ranelagh can proudly stand.

  • Express Yourself - Children's Mental Health Week

    Published 05/02/21

    This week Ranelagh Primary and Nursery School was awash with different shades of yellow to celebrate Children’s Mental Health Week. 

    The theme this year was to learn about expressing your thoughts and feelings using a range of ways. This could be through art, music, drama and a few cool dance moves. The pupils took this challenge up with extreme enthusiasm using Lockdown Learning  and Google Classroom to share how they could show good mental health.

     From singing songs in the Early years to passionate debates in Year 6 the children showed the many ways they could achieve a positive state of mind. Lots of children enjoyed sketching, playing marbles and one even practised beating their own record of solving a rubik cube puzzle as a way of calming down and relaxing.

    Even the parents got in with the act and told staff , during our coffee mornings, how they were keeping good mental health.

    ‘A daily walk in the park helps get rid of mine and the children’s worries’. One parent was brave enough to ‘switch off the television and just talk to each other’. 

    The week was rounded off by Ranelagh's Friday celebration assembly - a time when we can all come together, become connected and enjoy each others company. 

    Due to this pandemic,our children are spending long periods indoors and  are unable to see friends and family - now, more than ever, it is important to raise awareness of good mental health and  to encourage our children to talk about their feelings. 

    For more ideas and support on Mental Health for you and your family see or speak to a member of staff for more information.
