Summer Half Term Update
We are now in a position to share details of our plans to bring more children back in to school from June 1st. Full details of this can be found in the three ALERT documents in the Letters To Parents folder on this website. We understand that these new arrangements may increase anxiety and worry for many of you. We are also very mindful that transition will be so important this year and as soon as we have plans in place for how this will be managed, we will share them with you. When all the children can come back, regardless of when that is, we will start where we left off and support your child to catch up.
Take the time to reassure, and offer the love, time and attention your child needs as we face another period of change and adjustment. Please do not feel pressurised to complete all home learning if you feel your child needs supporting in other ways. If you are looking for what to prioritise; we suggest phonics for Reception and KS1 and reading widely and often for all year groups. We hope that we will be able to see more children as soon as possible.
Please continue to stay safe and remember to keep following the advice from the government. If you are feeling anxious or worried please have a look at the wonderful resources on the Childline Website: click here.
There is also support and advice for parents and carers on the Worcestershire County Council Hub: http://www.worcestershire.gov.uk/here2help
Remember to also keep following our Golden Rules!
We really do hope that it won’t be too long before we are all back together again.
Love from all the adults at Rushwick School
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.
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 the £1.2 million school expansion project, we are for the first time operating with seven single age group classes from September 2019, for the primary years Reception, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6.
Before the school grows to capacity year on year, our Year 4, 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 2020, please contact the school on 01905-422502 or click on the Admissions under Key Information on the bar above for Worcestershire Admissions. Alternatively, why not arrange to come and visit us, meet us 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.
