I believe Ravensbury should be a school at the heart of its community where diversity is celebrated and pupils are respectful. A place where all pupils feel safe to take risks, enjoy learning and work hard to excel. A place where they challenge themselves, learn from each other and create lasting memories. But most of all to create a school to be proud of! By working together we can ensure that all pupils enjoy their time at school, make excellent progress and leave with the necessary skills and attitudes to lead successful and fulfilling lives.Mrs Maureen Hughes
Children at Ravensbury are taught Geography, History, Art, Music and RE through our Creative Curriculum (CC). Sometimes ICT and Science will also be incorporated int this learning. This is an approach to teaching and learning that builds the children’s skills, knowledge and understanding and leads to an experience the children undertake to demonstrate their proficiency in the learning whilst using the learning in real life situations.
The experiences are designed to take the children beyond the ordinary and to ignite natural curiosity and stimulate creativity. Experiences offered to the children are practical, real and memorable, such as holding an Art Exhibition, producing a fashion show, recreating the first Olympic Games, running a Cafè or publishing a poetry book.
