All staff at The Royal Primary School regard the development of the whole child as critical. We have high expectations of academic success, but this does not detract from the fact that it is also the personal qualities that we embed in each of our pupils that will ultimately see them through to realise their ambitions and dreams.
In the Primary School, it is the form teachers who are ultimately responsible for the pastoral care of the pupils in their class, helping each of them to achieve and enjoy what they do. Our most recent school inspection identified this pastoral care as outstanding noticing that pupils are expected to be good mannered, courteous and respectful of the feelings of others and that high standards of behaviour and values are maintained.
Parents and pupils interested in the School should come along to one of our open events where they will be able to meet key staff, in particular the Head of the appropriate section of the school. It is important that you and your child fully understand the ethos, values and expectations of our School so that you can certain that it is the right choice.
In the meantime, if you require further information, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Registrar Mrs Megan Orton.
The main points of entry into our School are:
Few would deny that a good education extends beyond actual examination results. It’s about developing the whole child into an independent, resilient and ambitious young adult; equipping them to make their mark on the world. Not only do we truly believe this at The Royal School, but we also do everything within our extensive means to ensure it happens. It’s all too easy to talk about ‘educating the whole child’ but unless there is full commitment and action from across the whole school it soon becomes meaningless rhetoric.
