• Welcome to

    The Russell School


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 inclusive teaching and learning, enabling all of our happy and enthusiastic children to achieve their full potential and reach their highest academic standard.

Developing an inquiring mind and creating a passion for learning, we prepare our children for the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities that they may encounter in the next stage of their education and in their future.

Providing creative and enriching opportunities across the curriculum, we provide new and exciting experiences, develop practical skills, build on what our children already know and enthuse our young learners to take risks 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 learners, supporting their positive mental health, emotional well-being, resilience and physical development by promoting healthy lifestyles and providing a wide range of opportunities to try new things, both within the curriculum and in their own time.

By enabling our children to become independent, to be responsible and safe 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, our community and our environment as global citizens.

As welcoming and caring professionals, our staff develop opportunities for positive partnerships with parents and our local community, recognising the valuable contribution that they make to the life of the school.
