Our School

(continuation of Principal’s Welcome)

Mr Midgley Principal

I was appointed as headteacher at Raynville Primary School to start in September 2016. Prior to my appointment, the governing body had begun to investigate the implications around becoming an academy. Following a period of investigation, we became Raynville Academy and joined The Great Heights Trust in April 2019.

Welcome to the Raynville Academy website. We work hard to provide our children with the best opportunities to learn and enjoy their time with us. We are in the heart of the Bramley community and work closely with other local schools.

We are an inclusive school where all children are welcomed, regardless of their current ability or background. We believe all children should be able to learn together in a stimulating environment, and be inspired to give of their best. We celebrate the richness of our children’s identities, be it their talents and interests, their gender, cultural or ethnic heritage, language or additional needs.

We have a strong sense of community at Raynville and are very proud of our friendly, positive ethos. This was recognised by Ofsted when they last visited us in 2017. Ofsted officially recognises Raynville Primary as a good and improving school, read on to find out what they had to say about our school…;

“Children achieve outstandingly well in the early years. The stimulating learning opportunities in the Nursery and Reception years now equip children very well indeed for work in Year 1.”

“Pupils are safe and well looked after in the school. They successfully benefit spiritually, morally, socially and culturally from the wide array of visits and experiences.”

“Pupils attend regularly and behave well. They show positive attitudes towards their learning.”

“The physical education and sport premium funding is used exceptionally well to develop pupils’ awareness of the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle”

“The use of additional funding is also effective in enhancing the learning of pupils who have special educational needs (SEN) and/or disabilities, and those from disadvantaged backgrounds”

“The headteacher is ambitious for all pupils. His high expectations are rapidly driving improvements. They ensure that pupils achieve well from their starting points.”

The Vision

“The future is in our hands”

RAYNVILLE ACADEMY VALUES AND ETHOS

We aim to build up a positive ethos by providing:

  • a happy, safe, caring environment which safeguards all children.
  • a fair system of discipline, where good behaviour is expected, and outstanding behaviour is readily praised, and any form of bullying is openly challenged.
  • equal opportunities for all.
  • an effective whole school community partnership.
  • an image that the whole school community can be proud of, identify with and participate in.

We aim to ensure our curriculum will:

  • be responsive to the needs of the pupils and the Bramley community and will therefore:
  • focus on basic skills throughout a broad, balanced, cross-curricular and progressive range of learning outcomes.
  • provide a high standard of personalised learning for each child.
  • introduce children to new, memorable experiences and ways of thinking.
  • develop each child intellectually, physically, spiritually and morally.
  • promote health, tolerance, happiness, safety and independence.
  • enable all pupils to enjoy and achieve.

We will therefore provide:

  • an environment which ensures the safety and well-being of all.
  • a clear home-school contract which summarises our aims and sets clear expectations of pupils and parents/carers.
  • an environment where pupils make a positive contribution.
  • support for families from our Pastoral and Inclusion Team.
  • a range of extended services.
  • a learning environment where pupils/families can achieve economic well-being.
  • a range of activities within and outside the national curriculum to promote excellence and enjoyment for all.
