  • Super Cycling Club

    Published 05/04/19

    Nine super cyclists braved the wind and rain on Monday to cycle to East Ham along the famous Greenway. Ranelagh's after-school bike club has been running over the last term. Initially, they  practised their cycling skills in our playground and then ventured onto the Greenway. The Greenway ,which is on our doorstep, is built above the famous London sewage system designed by Joseph Bazalgette in the 19th Century. Cycling is an amazing way to explore our local area and its amazing historical past.

  • Inclusive Practice Gets Better and Better...

    Published 02/04/19

    Once again, Ranelagh has retained its flagship status due to its 'extraordinarily high level of inclusivity'. This accolade was awarded by IQM,  a body which recognises schools who demonstrate outstanding inclusion , promoting equal opportunities for all pupils, whatever their age, gender, ethnicity, attainment and background. 

    The assessor mentioned Ranelagh's enriched curriculum which ' not only includes the minimum expectations laid down in government documents but also a broad range of additional interventions, resources and opportunities designed to ensure that every child has what they need in order to reach their full potential.' Encompassing Ranelagh's vision, "To be the best that they can be."

    However, this cannot be achieved without the hard work and determination of all staff at Ranelagh.  The staff ‘really gets to know the children as individuals. They celebrate the positives and work hard to help children overcome challenges.'

    The assessor went on to say that there is an overwhelming sense that children and staff have mutual respect for each other which is needed to move a school forward. The whole school speaks 'with one inclusive voice.'

    Children, staff and the Local Community at Ranelagh Primary school celebrated the official opening of the Junior Volunteer Police Cadet Unit which has been running at Ranelagh since September 2018. The cadet unit offers boys and girls from years 5 and 6 a wide range of skills in policing. These have included learning the drill (marching), discussing police topics such as stop and search and discussing ways to self-regulate. Through weekly meetings at the school, children take part in team building exercises to develop the spirit of collaboration and good citizenship.

It was held in front of many honourable guests -Deputy Lieutenant for Newham; the Deputy Mayor; distinguished councillors; Detective Superintendent and the Chair of the Trustees for TTLT, Mr Andi Smith. The event began with official speeches by Shella Lawrenson, the Headteacher of Ranelagh, who talked about the success of the unit and how the unit encourage the values held at the heart of Ranelagh- resilience and responsibility .

  • Changes are afoot

    Published 01/03/19

    New entrance gates, lamp-posts knocked down and the pavement lowered - at last the new build begins.

    Over the last few years, Ranelagh has been in the process of major renovations and you have been so patient whilst the rejuvenation takes place.

    From these photos, you can see how Ranelagh has drastically improved.

     

    In the last 3 years, lots has been achieved-the outside of the building had an uplift . The playgrounds have been brought back to life with  new parks and relaxation areas . All of the classrooms were decorated from dull green to vibrant blue. Canopies have ensured the outdoor area over reception is inspiring. We now have canopies in KS1 and nursery playgrounds .

    Starting form 12th March the new extension will be starting. By Summer 2020, Ranelagh will have a brand new nursery and brand new admin offices. As we are becoming a first choice school , the build will ensure that Ranelagh can grow into a 3-form entry.

    These are the plans for our new extension

    We are all very excited - we will be keeping you updated with all the latest building news.

  • Message from Parent Governor Mr Amadou Jammeh

    Published 26/02/19

    Hello, it’s great to meet you here and thanks for taking the time to read Ranelagh Primary School’s Newsletter. Please let me take this opportunity to introduce myself as one of the parent Governors of Ranelagh Primary School representing the amazing and hardworking parents whose children are learning at Ranelagh. I have crossed paths with many of you on school runs, parents’ evenings, summer and winter fairs, but never really had the chance to formally introduce myself as your representative on Ranelagh Primary School’s Local Advisory Board (LAB), which performs the following key roles:

    • Setting the strategic direction of the school
    • Ensuring accountability of senior leadership team of the school
    • Providing support and challenging the leadership team of the school on all issues that affect the learning and welfare of pupils.
    • Monitoring and evaluating the school’s performance
    • Ensuring that the school is a safe, healthy and an inclusive environment.

      As a Link Governor, I have specific responsibility to work with and support the school’s senior leadership team in their efforts to continue to embed empowered leadership, through self-reflection and school analysis to drive strategic decisions. This is a role I enjoy very much as it resonates with many of my own responsibilities as Director of Studies for Newcastle University in London.

    I attended the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) meeting on Tuesday 5th February 2019. The PTA is doing an amazing job supporting the pupils, parents, and staff of Ranelagh Primary School. It was an absolute privilege to hear them speak so passionately about many of the wonderful projects and events they have delivered at Ranelagh. I am delighted to inform you that they are working on staging many more exciting projects and events in the future. Thanks once again and please come and say hello next time we bump into each other on the school runs.

  • Space Visit for Year 5

    Published 26/02/19

    Last week, Year 5 went where no man has gone before (apart from 390,000 young visitors!) ,they visited the Science Museum. Having learned all about the Space Race this term, the children were fascinated to see real life astronauts’ costumes, pieces from the moon and other planets. Having designed their own rockets, they were able to compare the original prototypes with their own. Pupils added to their already extensive knowledge finding out about space, constellations and satellites.
