Welcome to Rufford Primary School!
We aim to provide a safe learning environment where children develop the skills to become responsible, articulate citizens of the 21st century. We want our children to be challenged by staff who understand their individual needs and strengths, and who have high expectations of all, including themselves. Our children should not be afraid to make mistakes, but be determined to learn from them; they should not be constrained by the curriculum, but encouraged to think independently and flourish, whatever their gifts may be. We celebrate the diversity of our local community, and encourage everyone to play their part in doing what is best for our children.
About the school!
We are a one form entry primary school in the Lye area of Stourbridge, with 222 children on roll including Nursery. I hope that you will find our website interesting, and informative.
Our children are helped to develop in their learning and their readiness for the future by a team of dedicated and enthusiastic staff. We also develop the children's understanding of the world around them; their care and respect for others; their emotional well-being and their knowledge that they are unique and valued as individuals.
Children have an important role to play in our school's life: we have an active School Council. They help to make decisions, including interviewing potential members of staff, and are genuinely listened to. Our Y6 play area was designed by children, who also wrote the bid for funding and invited the Mayor along to open it formally.
We believe that our nurturing ethos helps our children to learn and to grow in confidence, so that they can become the best they can.
