Welcome to Russell Hall Primary School and Nursery. We are a long established school in the heart of the village of Queensbury. Generation after generation have taken their first steps in learning within our walls and the school is characterised by the happy, confident and outgoing children.
I am pleased to be part of a dedicated team of Staff, Parents and Governors who are working closely together to ensure that every child in our care gets the best possible education. We believe that every child is unique and special and our job is to begin to identify the talents and potential that lie within our children and shape and build on these to enable children to be the best that they can be.
This is achieved through a close and trusting relationship between home and school, working together at all ltimes to promote the vision, aims and ethos of the school and community. We work hard to create an atmosphere of mutual respect where we have high expectations of all children and of ourselves. We endeavour to make school an exciting place for children to be, by delivering a creative and inspiring curriculum, enriched in a wide variety of ways to deepen children’s understanding of what they are taught. We strive to remove barriers to children’s learning by closely tracking children’s progress and working as a team to support all aspects of the child.
May I extend a warm welcome to all visitors to our website and should you wish to visit school please do not hesitate to ring and make an appointment.
We are proud of the long history that our school has.
