The governing committee of Russett School would like to welcome you to our school.
We are proud at the Russett that we work as a team to provide the best teaching, learning and care to your child. We do this by working in partnership with parents, the head teacher, all staff, other schools and colleges in the area and by maintaining close links with the local authorities who serve our children.
We are sure that your child will be happy at the Russett, enjoying the support of outstanding teachers and teaching assistants who continuously strive to assist your child in their learning so that they can achieve the very best.
As governors, we seek to provide the best possible environment and feel we use funds wisely to enhance facilities at the school. Our building is old, but thanks to considerable investment in recent years, we believe we provide a comfortable and safe school in which your child can prosper.
We have a clear vision for the school, putting children and their parents/carers at the heart of all we do. Each child has individual and specific needs, with each child having personalised plan for their care and education while they are with us, with their progress being continuously monitored and adapted to meet their needs. The school prides itself on ensuring that parents are kept fully informed of this progress and are given a real voice in making decisions about future and developing needs.
You have put your faith in us by considering the Russett as the best place to meet your child’s needs, as governors we will honour your choice and work to provide a happy, safe and stimulating environment where they can reach their full potential and feel that they are valued members of our community.
