Is your contact information correct?
It is imperative that the school holds up to date information for you and the contacts you have listed, should we need to call you regarding your child while they are here with us in school. It is a standard requirement that we need to hold at least two contacts for each child, so that we are able to easily reach someone promptly.
If you need to change your contact information please contact the school reception or alternatively complete the form available within the virtual office section and return this to us or you can complete the contact us information section.
We appreciate your assistance in this matter.

Key Stage Testing 2019-2020
2017 saw the follow on from the introduction of statutory tests which in turn, saw an increase in what children are supposed to be able to achieve and demonstrate under the Government's drive to raise standards at the ages of 7 and 11 (Years 2 and 6). At Ravenswood we are always keen to give the children the very best education that we can deliver and strive to support and motivate them to achieve at the highest level of which they are capable. We keep up to date with changes and current thinking through research and professional development and have weekly staff meetings to look at ways to improve what we are delivering to all of our pupils. We cannot control what is decided by central government, we can only prepare your children for their high school and life beyond. We seek to give them a thirst for learning, a curiosity about the world in which they live and a flexible, 'have a go' attitude to all of life.We often hear that SATs are 'for the school'. True every school is judged by what is achieved in the tests and progress made by pupils in Years 2 and 6, but at Ravenswood we believe that every child has the right to an all round education that will prepare them for their life experiences and an exciting future, one in which they can shine and be successful. Below are two links to a short video on both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 SATs but if you require any further information about them please just come in and talk to your child's class teachers, they are always here to help.
So what is your role in all of this? Working with parents and carers has a really positive impact on children's learning. It is important that, as far as is possible, your child is listened to when reading, or asking questions like 'do you like the book?' or 'what is happening in the book' can be equally useful throughout your child's school life. Having time for breakfast and getting to school by 8.40a.m is also an important part of how you can support your child in their learning. We can all help each other and, by doing that, achieve the very best for your child, which is what they all deserve.
