Welcome to Rufford Primary School and Nursery!
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.
If you would like to know more, have an explore of our website, or call Ms Laight in the school office to arrange a visit.

Head boy & Head girl Statement
Head Girl: Noor
Hi, my name is Noor I am the head girl at Rufford Primary School. I enjoy being Head Girl because of the responsibility. I like the idea that I can come up with ways to improve the school. In my spare time I enjoy to read! My favourite books are the Harry Potter series, I find the adventure and mystery very interesting about it. My favourite character is Luna Lovegood because she has a very interesting personality. At school I enjoy a range of subjects equally. This year I want to enjoy my time at the school as it is my last year. I am looking forward to the leaver’s assembly as it will be a good send off and I will be able to spend time with my friends. My main aim of being head girl is to help the children throughout the school. I will be leading clubs for Year 5 teaching them different techniques in art. The work that is produced from this club hopefully will be made into a scrapbook.
Head Boy: Bilal
Hello, my name is Bilal I am the Head Boy at Rufford Primary School. I like being head boy as I can make a difference for the school. I want to make the school curriculum more interesting for the younger children so they aren't as nervous about coming to school. I have a very strong interest in Geography and History. I like learning about new things and seeing how things have changed throughout the years. When I was young I have always wanted to explore the world and when I am older I want to explore as many places in the world as I can. I am most looking forward to visiting Egypt and exploring all of the pyramids and learning a new culture. My favourite subjects are History and Geography of course but I also really enjoy Maths. I enjoy Maths because I like problem solving and working out the answers to the questions. I'm looking forward to this whole Year and everything the school has planned. I want to do as well as I can in my SATs and set a good example for the rest of the class. I have a club planned for later in the Year which will be about Ancient Egyptians.
