Who are we?
We are a small first school situated near Druridge Bay in Northumberland. Red Row is all about happy, hard working children having fun, whilst trying to reach their own personal best in all areas of the school life. We have capacity for children in Nursery (15 hours over 5 mornings), Reception, KS1 and KS2. Additionally we also have the facilities to offer spaces for nursery children who qualify for 30 hours or for those who wish to pay for additional hours.
Our school day starts with registration at 8:45 and runs until 15:15, meaning we are open for 32.5 hours in a typical week.
On a morning we offer a free breakfast club, sponsored by Greggs, from 8.20. All children in Nursery, Reception, KS1 and KS2 are welcome to attend. After school we a chargeable childcare club which children can attend until 5:15 (This is charged at £3 for the first hour and £1.50 per subsequent half hour).
As a school we encourage an inclusive partnership between the children, adults and the home. We understand that children need to feel safe and secure before they can be successful. Because of this, we strive to make all of our children feel this way so that they can fulfil their potential.
We work each day with a common purpose to create a sense of belonging and community, not just among the children and adults but also the parents and carers. We do this through treating everyone with respect and ensuring each one of us is valued. In addition we aim to foster resilience in individuals and inspire the children to widen and develop their aspirations.
At Red Row we feel the expectations we have for everyone can be summarised in five simple school rules:
- Be Respectful - Of everyone and everything.
- Be Responsible – For your actions and words and how they affect the whole school.
- Be Resilient – To setbacks and challenges. Don’t give up without trying.
- Be Ready – To always do your best and have everything you need to succeed.
- Be Safe - Emotionally and physically.
As no written words can convey the real atmosphere of a school, we would be happy to arrange an appointment for you to come and visit us. We hope that you will share with us in making this a successful period in your child's life.
I look forward to meeting you.
Mr. Richard Bollands
