At The Russell School, in partnership with children, staff, parents and governors, we have created a shared vision which our school community is committed to upholding.

The Russell School is committed to excellence in teaching and learning, enabling all our children to reach the highest academic standards in order to achieve their full potential.

Developing an inquiring mind and creating a passion for learning, we prepare our children for the next stage of their education and the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities of their adult lives.

Providing exciting and creative opportunities across the curriculum, we build on what our children already know and enthuse our young learners in an atmosphere which is challenging and supportive.

By fostering an ethos of mutual respect and a sense of belonging, we strive to meet the needs of our diverse community of children, supporting their emotional well-being and physical development by promoting healthy lifestyles.

By encouraging our children to become independent, to be responsible and to empathise with others, we instil an appreciation and understanding of the diverse world in which we live, supporting our children to respect and contribute to our school and their wider community.

As welcoming and caring professionals, our staff encourage parental and community involvement in the life of the school, recognising the valuable contribution they make.
