Welcome from the Head of School

Welcome to Rumboldswhyke Church of England Primary School, where your child is at the heart of everything we do!

I am very proud to welcome you to Rumboldswhyke, either as an existing parent, prospective parent or an interested member of the community.  Rumboldswhyke Church of England Primary School is a small, diverse and vibrant school with enthusiastic and friendly pupils.  The size of the school enables staff to know each child individually.

Our vision to provide a nurturing, creative, Christian community where everyone achieves with confidence and enjoyment …. so everyone embraces ‘life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10)  acknowledges:

that relationships form the foundation to successful learning through a caring and nurturing environment. Getting to know your child well,  building trust and fostering positive self-esteem is essential in developing them as a confident and eager child who believes in themselves and is sensitive to the needs of others.

that children learn best when they are excited by their learning and the learning is purposeful. This is why we carefully plan sequences of learning based on the children’s interests, capturing their enthusiasm with an engaging hook and working towards an authentic outcome.  We endeavour to make links with the community and use the local area to enhance the provision we offer.

As part of the Bishop Luffa Learning Partnership we are able to offer exciting opportunities which develop our pupils spiritually, physically, creatively and intellectually. We are fortunate to have fantastic indoor and outdoor learning spaces which further enhance our provision.

I look forward to meeting you and giving you the opportunity to see what Rumboldswhyke has to offer.

Lisa Harris,

Head of School
