Book a Tour
Ravenstone is a fantastic school. Every child that steps
through the gates is welcomed into an aspirational, creative
community that focuses on allowing children to flourish as
confident individuals and reach their potential academically.
As a Headteacher I passionately believe that we can allow our children to
experience a wide range of creative enrichment opportunities and develop as
confident, caring individuals who also excel academically. It is this mixture that
makes Ravenstone so special. We will not sacrifice either of these elements.Read full message
Our Ravenstone vision is ‘Children reaching their potential in the heart of the community’. We passionately believe that every child can achieve while experiencing a curriculum that is filled with exciting and enriching opportunities that instills them with the values that will allow them to flourish as individuals and as part of our Ravenstone community.
At Ravenstone we value the development of the whole child. We use every interaction we have with the children to promote our five core values. We do this because we believe that there is more to education that facts and knowledge. Our belief is that if our core values are truly instilled and understood by our children, they will have a deep knowledge of themselves and be able to succeed in the world around them and most importantly, grow to become happy, kind, honest, creative and determined adults.
Our core values are;
Creative Determined Happy Honest Kind Respectful
This promotion of our values shapes our school, the curriculum and ultimately the children and staff. We use the values to celebrate when the children show great progress, achievement and success and the values in turn have also taken the place of school ‘rules’ and are the heart of our wellbeing and behaviour policy.
We really hope you enjoy finding out about our core value family in this booklet. Keep your eyes peeled for them in action!
All the very best,
Joe Croft – Headteacher
