At Russell Lower we are proud of our school, our pupils and all they achieve.
We are a happy school that achieves extremely high standards. Above all, we believe that the children and their development are paramount. We are passionate about enhancing each child’s knowledge, skills and understanding to enable them to become more confident, successful, active and responsible. Our 'Vision' was devised by our whole community and gives even more about our ambitions for our children. It can be found under the 'Vision' tab of the website.
We operate an ‘Open Door Policy’, where parents are encouraged to become involved with the school and be an active partner in their child’s education.
In addition to the National Curriculum, children are given diverse additional opportunities in music, art, sport and languages.
We encourage children to stay safe, to be healthy, to enjoy, to achieve and to make a positive contribution. We have four 'Russell Rights' which we all hold dear: The right to be safe, to learn, to be included and to be happy. These are reinforced and revisited through everything we do and by all members of our team.
Our facilities include a full-size computing suite, interactive 'Clevertouch' boards in all classrooms, a well stocked (and used!) library, three playgrounds, wildlife gardens and pond area, in addition to and extensive playing fields and grounds.
Ofsted said of the school, ‘The warm and nurturing atmosphere and the sense that everyone is willing to go the extra mile to help pupils achieve are evident on setting foot in the school.’
