At Redmarley C of E Primary Academy the staff and governors provide our pupils with the best education that we can; one that excites, engages and motivates them to become independent, lifelong learners. Within our Christian setting we aim to provide a secure, caring and happy environment where our pupils will feel confident to achieve their full potential.
After consulting with the pupils we chose our motto to reflect the skills that we want our children to have when they leave our school.
We also aim to:

In April 2011 Ofsted conducted an interim assessment and concluded that our outstanding performance achieved in May 2008 had been sustained.
Schools previously judged outstanding are not subject to routine inspection unless concerns are raised about their performance. Her Majesty’s Inspectors look at various sources of information, as listed below. This is called an ‘interim assessment’.
In May 2008 we had our last full OFSTED inspection. What they said:
This is an outstanding school. Teaching is almost always good and often excellent, resulting in its effectiveness being outstanding overall.
Pupils not only do very well in reading, writing and mathematics, but also in other areas.
Throughout the school, pupils speak and listen exceptionally well, showing skills in these areas way beyond those normally found at this age. They have very good thinking skills, which they demonstrate in discussion.
Care, guidance and support are exceptionally good and create an atmosphere in which pupils thrive.
On top of all these excellent features of provision, pupils’ attitudes to school and to learning support their academic progress very well.
The curriculum is extremely varied and stimulating.
The quality of educational provision is very good. In particular, very good teaching ensures that pupils learn very well and achieve well.

Parent View is an online questionnaire that allows parents and carers to give their views about their child’s school at any time. It is also the main mechanism for parents to give their views about their child’s school to inspectors at the time of a school inspection.
The national KS2 performance tables are published in December each year. Below is the summary of our results for 2016 -2017.
We are currently updating our full curriculum information, including our approach to the curriculum, the content of the curriculum we follow in each academic year for every subject and the names of any phonics or reading schemes you are using in key stage 1. We will publish all of this information here soon.

Here at Redmarley we feel that children’s behaviour is central to the learning process and is an intrinsic element of education.
We aim to create and maintain a happy, caring and safe environment where all relationships are based on mutual respect and to develop a positive self-esteem in each child.
To this end we have worked together to create a structured Behaviour Policy which promotes this. To find out more click on the buttons below.

In 2011-12 the Government launched its Pupil Premium funding. This money is sent to schools based on the numbers of pupils in the school who are eligible for Free School Meals (FSM). From 2012-13, it was expanded to include all children who have been eligible for FSM within the last 6 years.
This money is allocated to initiatives to ensure pupils reach their full potential, both academically and socially.
A great deal more money from the Academy’s budget is added to the Pupil Premium to ensure all children make the required progress and to support the initiatives detailed above.
If your child does not have Free School Meals, but may be eligible because of your family’s income level, please do contact the office (in confidence) to register them. Even if you do not wish them to have the meals, this would mean our school could still claim Pupil Premium funding that may be used to help your child e.g. fund places on school trips or activities; access to Rise and Shine Breakfast Club.

Each year we set out plans for how we plan to spend our Pupil Premium:-
Read how we used our 2016/17 Pupil Premium here.
The Government is providing £150 million of ‘Sport Premium’ funding per annum (academic year) to primary schools to support the delivery of PE & School Sport. This funding will be ring fenced and Ofsted will carry out a survey reporting on the first year’s expenditure and its impact.
All schools with 17 or more primary-aged pupils (5-11yrs) will receive a lump sum of £16,000 plus a premium of £10 per pupil, per annum.
The Government are not dictating how schools should spend this money, but are clear that schools will need to employ the strategies that they know will support these pupils to increase their active participation in sports.
Schools must spend the additional funding on improving their provision of PE and sport, but they will have the freedom to choose how they do this.
Possible uses for the funding might include:

At RPA we value the abilities and achievements of all of our pupils and SEND is a matter for our Christian school as a whole. We all have important responsibilities in the implementation of the SEND Policy.
If your child has an additional need then please do not hesitate to speak to their Class Teacher in the first instance or you can talk to Mrs Rachel Evans our SENDCo or Mrs Smith our Head Teacher. We will endeavour to collaborate to identify specific needs and put together a plan to ensure that your child has the best possible outcomes that they can achieve.
For more information about SEND in our school, please click on the button below.
Our complaints policy is available from our office or directly from our website. If you would like to raise a complaint please contact us in the first instance. We do all that we can to resolve any concern you may have and ensure that you are happy with the education that your child receives at RPA. All complaints and expressions of concern, whether raised formally or informally, will be treated seriously and confidentially.
We have an obligation to post our financial information each year. You can find the latest information and reports here.
