Welcome to Ronald Ross Primary School.
We are an outstanding, one-form entry, maintained primary school located on the border of Putney and Wimbledon, in the heart of the William Willison Estate. I hope you find our website answers your questions about the school.
At Ronald Ross Primary School, we believe education has the power to change lives. Staff are determined to ensure all of our pupils make excellent progress and leave us with the skills they need for a successful, happy life.
We are proud of the diverse community we serve, which shares our values and makes the most of every aspect of school life.
The school's ethos is forward-thinking, welcoming and tolerant. The warm and welcoming atmosphere is often commented on by visitors and we invite you to come and look around to see us in action.
As a one form entry school, we know our children very well. Children trust adults and know it is our aim to ensure their wellbeing at all times. With an open door policy used by all staff, we have established a strong safeguarding culture across the school.
Our pupils excel in many subjects and we believe passionately in providing hands-on experiences and opportunities. Trips are carefully chosen for adding value to learning, across a wide range of subjects. These trips further stimulate talk and use of new vocabulary, used enthusiastically in their writing. In short, children develop their own passions when given the chance.
Children make the best progress when we work together. We take every opportunity to include parents in planning social events through our new PTA as well as consulting together on school policies.
We have a number of school partnerships to help further enrich the curriculum. We work with local secondary schools, Southfields and Ashcroft, as well as schools in the independent sector such as Putney High School and King's College School. Roehampton and Kingston Universities have also invited our children to join projects that raise their aspirations for life beyond primary school.
Last year, we had enough ex-pupils visiting the Winter Fair to make up a football team. I know they look back on their days at Ronald Ross with a sense of pride in their achievements, belonging in their community and memories of all the fun.
Please check the diary for the next open morning and we look forward to meeting you.
