On behalf of the staff, children and Governors I would like to welcome you to our school website. I hope that you will find the information useful and interesting; it will give you a flavour of our fantastic school and the amazing children who attend.

Ravensbury is a richly diverse school community at the heart of its community, where different languages, cultures and religions learn together in harmony. It is a friendly, caring school and I am passionate about ensuring our children have the best educational opportunities possible, both academically and socially and emotionally. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both within and outside the classroom. It is a place where all pupils feel safe to take risks, enjoy learning and work hard to excel. This is made possible by the hard work, care and dedication of all of the staff who are committed to providing high quality, enjoyable learning experiences for all pupils enabling them to achieve well, be safe and be healthy. 

Ravensbury has a good reputation within the local community. We know that the relationship between home and school is a vital one and we appreciate parents and carers working with us to continue to develop the aspirations of all in our community. Our wonderful pupils enjoy coming to school and there is always a buzz of excitement in the air. Our pupils are well-behaved, confident young people who contribute well to school life and the local and wider community. We are preparing today's children for tomorrow's world.

We are very proud of Ravensbury, but don’t just take our word for it. Have a look at our latest Ofsted report from October 2017 to see for yourself, or come and visit us, you'll be made very welcome

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.

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.
