Introduction by Head Teacher and Chair of Governors
The Head Teacher, Staff and Governors would like to welcome your child to Red Hall Primary School. This page is designed to answer some of the basic questions you may have about 'Our School'. We hope that it will prove to be a useful introduction to life at Red Hall.
We are a school committed to raising standards thereby allowing all of our children the chance to make the best of the education we provide. We want your child to be happy here at Red Hall because we believe that a contented child in a happy environment is the key to success.
However, we cannot achieve this aim alone. When your child starts school at Red Hall he or she triggers an important partnership, a partnership between the school and parents. As parents your co-operation is vital to the education of your child. Any concerns that you or your child have about any aspects of the school should be raised sooner rather than later. Whatever the nature of the matter please do not feel afraid to talk to your child's teacher or the Head. Remember - a small molehill to 'us' adults can be a mighty mountain for a child in a new school. On a broad basis regular contact between parents and teachers can only work to everyone's advantage.
On the other side of the coin good news is always welcome - please let us know if your child does something good or creditable outside or inside of school - we like to praise all achievements.
We hope you will support the policies of Red Hall Primary School and that you will share in all of our endeavours. We hope that, eventually when your child leaves Red Hall he or she will be fully prepared to meet the challenges ahead, to the ultimate benefit of all Gornal's children and the community of Lower Gornal and beyond.
