Dear Parents, carers and members of the Community,

May I take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to our Renishaw Primary School website. The staff, governors and I hope this will mark the beginning of a long and happy relationship with us, whether you are visiting as a guest or you and your child are already with us.

We believe that it is vitally important that we recreate the security, care and understanding that you give your child at home. We also firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school, and regard you as an active partner in our school’s development and value your interest and support in moving the school forward.


DSC_0200At Renishaw Primary School we have approx 200 students on roll ranging from age 3-11, every child is as important as the next. In short every child matters. High self-esteem is encouraged, high expectations, standards and values are fostered and progress and achievement are positively monitored and celebrated. We believe that all children can achieve and that no child is left behind.

Renishaw has many qualities, the most important of these being a dedicated and caring team of staff and governors who offer a wealth of experience. In addition we have excellent facilities and enjoy support from the community at large. These factors will help us to provide the highest standards of education for your child. In our essential partnership with parents, we strive to ensure continued academic success and to develop essential practical skills which will enable all children to succeed in a modern world.

DSC01444We seek to provide every opportunity for children to apply Literacy, Numeracy and
Information Technology skills across their learning, in a stimulating and wide ranging curriculum that will include a fantastic range of experiences that will engage, enrich and excite all of the children and give them a thirst for learning.

We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards and make maximum progress in relation to their prior learning. We want children to enjoy acquiring  knowledge and skills, to question and explore, to acquire positive attitudes, behaviour and personal beliefs and gain independence… to become lifelong learners.

It is vital that we always remember that the most important people in our school are the children and pupil voice is integral in all that we do.

Our school ethos and Children’s Charter is centred on the quote:

“Tell me and I forget.

Teach me and I remember.

Involve me and I Learn.”

         Benjamin Franklin

I sincerely hope that you and your child’s association with us proves to be equally happy.

Simon Fuller

Head Teacher
