We welcome you to Ringsfield Church of England VC
Primary School. Ours is a small, happy, Primary School in the heart of
the Suffolk countryside. We have excellent and dedicated staff that are
committed to providing quality teaching and learning experiences for
all. Being small brings advantages: Our teaching team works hard to
develop a deep understanding of your child's individual learning needs
and we strive to meet these. Our ethos is one of a caring,
learning-centred school working in close partnership with parents. In
our school it can truly be said that every child matters.
We are a welcoming school and we hope you gain a sense of this warmth as
you walk along the corridor and into the classes. We aim to support your
child's progress and to listen to you as partners in your child's
development. There will be many opportunities throughout the school year
to join with us and share in your child's learning and we look forward
to seeing you. Through our positive, supportive atmosphere and the
celebration of individual achievements we build self-esteem and develop
each child's confidence to be creative and take risks with their
learning; this was recognized in our recent Ofsted report.
We are in the fortunate position of being able to
offer a state-funded Nursery. Through play in a bright and cheerful
environment, children from the Nursery are gradually integrated into
whole-school activities throughout the year.

Although the Local
Authority decides on admissions to our school we are happy to meet with you and
discuss any queries you may have regarding starting school.
We are able to offer local children places in our morning Nursery. Entry is
dependent on the places available and each term a Nursery Panel meets to decide
on place allocation. The Nursery is an intrinsic part of the main school, with
the children involved in assemblies and joining the main body of the school for
outings and lunches. This all makes for smooth transfer to full time education.
Children begin full time schooling when they move into Reception at the age of
4. In the summer before they start, the children are welcomed into the school to
spend time getting to know the teacher and the school environment.
We have gained national
recognition as a 'Healthy School' which means we are taking steps to ensure the
health and well-being of all the children at Ringsfield School. This doesn't just
mean healthy eating and exercise but mental and emotional health as well.
