Rushwick CE Primary School
Welcome to our school website. We are currently updating some pages but still hope the site gives you a picture of what our unique learning community has to offer. Thank you for taking the time to find out more about us. I feel privileged to be the head of Rushwick CE Primary School; 'a highly inclusive Church school where all staff support children to reach their full potential' (SIAMS Inspection Report July 2019).
Our key mission is to maintain a culture where we are all: 'Learning to Live and Living to Learn’. We recognise each child as a unique child of God. Our vision is to provide an excellent education which equips each child with the necessary skills to meet changes and challenges throughout their life. We encourage and support our children to be "courageous advocates". This means they champion causes which are special and meaningful to them. These may be global issues or matters far more personal and closer to home.
The school nestles within beautiful grounds in the small village of Rushwick. We are in an idyllic location, within walking distance of Worcester city, but also on the edge of farmland with expansive views towards the Malvern Hills. We aim to maximise the use of our beautiful setting by enriching the children’s learning and providing them with areas to explore and ‘space to grow’. This does mean they may occasionally come home muddy! Through this we enable them to experience awe and wonder of the world, develop an appreciation of beauty and value the environment around them.
Every member of staff is committed to providing the children with a safe and exciting environment where they can make the most of every learning opportunity offered to them. Our aim is to provide children with a ‘home from home’ nurturing experience, where we hold onto and value the awe and wonder of childhood, within a framework of high expectation and academic rigour.
Following the completion of a £1.2 million school expansion project, we are operating with seven single age group classes for the primary years Reception, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Before the school grows to capacity year on year, our current 5 and 6 children have the added benefit of being taught in a much smaller average class size than normal (no more than 20 pupils).
If you wish to enquire about availability of places for this academic year, or Reception spaces for September 2021, please contact the school on 01905-422502 or click on the Admissions under Key Information on the bar above for Worcestershire Admissions. We will not be holding an open evening but do instead provide visits for prospective parents to meet us and come and look around.
If you are a parent / carer of a child in our school and would like a free paper copy of any of the information within this website please make a request via our school office.
