  • Ranelagh Awarded RE Gold Quality Mark

    Published 21/09/18

    Just before the summer break Ranelagh was awarded with the Religious Education Gold quality mark by the Religious Education Council of England and Wales. The council is tasked with recognising and celebrating outstanding learning in Religious Education across the country and has decided that Ranealgh is worthy of the gold status, the highest possible award.

    Religious Education plays a vital role in our schools curriculum and is integral to our school ethos. It helps us develop life skills and teaches us important values like love, honesty, forgiveness, kindness, justice, respect for others and our environment and perhaps most importantly tolerance and equality, values which are essential in today’s modern world.

  • Ranelagh Receives Artsmark Platinum

    Published 21/09/18

    Ranelagh has been recognised for its incredible commitment towards the creative arts education with the prestigious Artsmark Platinum award (the highest accolade) from Arts Council England.

    The council commented that our commitment to providing a wide range of high quality artistic and cultural experiences for pupils at our school was exemplar and we have developed “many rewarding and authentic partnerships that have stretched teacher’s expectations and resulted in making measurable positive impacts on pupils learning and outcomes.” Further to this, it was noted that we, as a school, should consider further how we can share out outstanding areas of practice on a wider platform - a true feather in our cap.

    Ranelagh’s curriculum ensures that the arts are at the centre of learning – both developing skills in the arts and also as a tool for cross-curricular learning. Don Wry, our Ranelagh Curriculum leader, submitted the statement of intent two years ago and has worked with his Arts team to implement his vision within the school and develop it with in the Trust.

  • los niños son fantásticos

    Published 20/06/18


     12 Year 6 children had the privilege of brushing up on their Spanish last week. They travelled to Almería, to the seaside town of Roquetas de Mar. They visited our sister school - Las Salinas - and met up with their buddies. Ranelagh children supported the Spanish children during their English lessons and the Spanish children helped our children with Spanish phrases. The children also had the opportunity to taste the local delicacies of churros and chocolate and eat fresh olive oil spread on crunchy Spanish bread. The children had a day of sightseeing around the historical town of Almería where they visited Almería cathedral and climbed the top of a mountain, to St. Christopher monument, which over looked Alcazaba of Almería - a Moorish fortress.

  • Ranelagh Wows CEO's

    Published 13/06/18

    Proteus, run out of the world-renown London Business School, is ‘the most innovative and challenging leadership programme in the world’ and is designed specifically for senior leaders who are looking to review their careers and define their professional legacy. The programme sees participants from across the globe travel to London to take part in different workshops all aimed at improving the effectiveness of their roles as leaders.

    Ranelagh has been a proud member of the Proteus programme now for many years and on Tuesday 5th June we once again played host to a selection of highly-skilled business men and women who toured the school and were reinvigorated by what they saw and the leadership in practise that they witnessed.

    Best demonstrating what it means to be effective leaders were our school council, who welcomed our guests and enjoyed lunch, conversing over the significant role they play in our school. They then lead a tour of the building, explaining the structure of our curriculum, the programmes on offer for our children, highlighting the hard work and success stories of our staff and students. 3M2 then put on a brilliant poetry performance, wowing our visitors who had the opportunity to ask the children questions and also pop into classrooms to observe some of the brilliant teaching and learning that happens daily.

  • Sharpening Up Our Geography Skills

    Published 21/05/18

    The whole of Ranelagh have sharpened up their geography skills this term. Children from year 3 have been observing the land in West Ham Park to develop their geography skills. They've identified and recorded human and physical features in the local area and created sketch maps using the information. Emrys from 3M2 said, “It was fun and exciting, like a quest, because we were using directions (NESW) and made our own map.”

  • Inclusion Quality Mark - Flagship Status

    Published 13/04/18

    Ranelagh is very proud to announce that we have once again been recognised for outstanding practice and inclusion in our school. For the past five years we have been an Inclusion Quality Mark School and for the past two years we have been classed as a Centre of Excellence, a very prestigious award. However, as we always continue to strive for greater heights, we have now been awarded 'Flagship Status,' the highest possible accolade in this field.


    Only around 100 UK schools have achieved IQM Flagship School status. This award recognises those unique schools who have held IQM Centre of Excellence status for at least 3 years; and played a strong leadership role in developing inclusion best practice across a network of schools.


    The assessor spent an entire day gathering data and evidence to support the assessment, speaking to staff and senior leaders as well as parents, children and governors. The assessor was particularly impressed with the vision and leadership of Mrs. Patel and Mrs. Chowdhury - our dedicated Inclusion team and also Mrs. Lawrenson, our Head Teacher, commenting that they are "a reflective but dynamic and driving force within the school... ensuring that inclusion remains a key focus of the school."

  • Amazing Ranelagh Curriculum Ambassadors

    Published 10/04/18

    The Ranelagh Curriculum Ambassadors are a team of students from across Key Stage Two who have shared a vested interest in the continued development our very own curriculum. These children volunteer their time, during breaks and lunches, to improve many aspects of school life at Ranelagh - they organise and run their own playtime clubs, they monitor classroom environments, they assist with resources and preparation, but perhaps most importantly they provide suggestions and creative ideas about what they would like their learning to look like.

    This past term has seen the Ranelagh Curriculum Ambassadors flourish in many ways, and it's certainly been a busy term indeed! The children have been leading on creating a TTLT song with June Fileti, the head of ECAM (Newhams 'Every Child a Musician' programme) and other children from Curwen and Kensington Primary, they have been organising and running their own meetings every Thursday lunchtime, and they have been sharing their ideas, suggestions and curriculum interests on Google classroom (most often at home). The dedication these children have shown to our school is truly astounding - perhaps best exemplified by Gabriel's origami club that he runs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays, during play and lunch. "I'm really passionate about the arts and I love origami. I wanted to share my enthusiasm with other children here in our school." You can find Gabriel outside, now with his own team of helpers, running the club by themselves, and a long queue of children lined up to see and try their hand at origami magic.
