Welcome to Redlands Primary School!
I aim to lead Redlands so that it is high-achieving and also friendly, inclusive, and open. I usually come out onto the playground at the start and end of the day simply to chat. Teachers, too, come out to ensure the children are safe and to mingle with parents and carers. If you need a private meeting appointments can be made through the office. We will always listen and try to take account of your views.
At Redlands all my staff and I want to see all children achieve the highest standards of which they are capable in all subjects, but especially in reading, writing and maths. We also value and nurture their artistic, spiritual, musical, sporting and other talents.
Children are individuals – they look different, behave differently, and develop and learn at different times and different rates. We aim to develop each child from their particular starting points, build their self-esteem and resilience and help them to become happy and fulfilled individuals who can become valued members of the wider community. We place considerable value on developing interpersonal skills and believe it is important that our children are taught to be kind, hard-working, considerate and courteous – behaviour which the staff exemplify as role models.
We are delighted to welcome you to Redlands and hope that you will make full use of the many opportunities to work in partnership with us for the benefit of your child.
