Welcome to Robins Lane Primary School Website

 

Learning Together, Happy Together

Welcome!

Dear Visitor

Robins Lane is a highly regarded and thus very popular, one form entry primary school with an equally popular and over-subscribed Nursery. At the end of Y6, the vast majority of our pupils transfer to Sutton Academy and St. Cuthbert’s.

Our aim at Robins Lane, which is central to all that we do, is to enable all children to achieve their full potential in all aspects of school life. We seek to fulfil this through the highest quality teaching and learning opportunities, planned through a broad, balanced and appropriate curriculum, in a stimulating, nurturing and engaging learning environment. We aim to encourage intellectual growth through the range of learning experiences that we offer, developing self-confidence, self worth and the resilience necessary for great learning. We pride ourselves on our welcoming, caring ethos – an extension to the care and security that comes from family life, which we feel is fundamental to ensuring our pupils flourish. It is important to us, that we help children to develop effective relationships with their peers, teachers, parents and the community on a local, national and international level, based on a healthy, respectful attitude towards all people regardless of race, gender, creed, social background or disability.

At Robins Lane, our children experience a rich, relevant curriculum based on first hand learning experiences which motivate and engage children in their learning. We have a key emphasis on the acquisition of basic skills, vital for future success. Our curriculum is enriched through an emphasis on the Arts and International Partnerships, two aspects of our provision that have been recognised nationally through ‘Gold Arts Mark’ and ‘Full International Schools’ Award’ statuses. We are committed to and very proud of both achievements.

We teach children Spanish from Nursery through to Y6 and our children receive further enhancement to the curriculum through learning about Chinese culture and sampling simple Mandarin. We offer a range of extra-curricular learning activities including Art, Badminton, Cheerleading, Gardening Club, Magazine Club, Eco Council and School Council, to name but a few; we hope children will pursue current interests, find new interests and develop their own particular talents.

We work closely with many community partners in order to provide the best for our pupils. Key partners include the Local Authority Specialist Inclusion Service and healthcare professionals to enable us to provide for all children’s needs. We work with local schools in St Helens including a Local Primary Network of 9 schools, the Sutton Academy and St Cuthbert’s where the majority of our children transfer at age 11. We also have special partnerships with schools in Spain and China which enriches our provision and ensures it is the best that it can be.

Our most important partners, however, are our parents and we value the close relationship that we have with them. We know that working together is crucial to ensure the best possible outcomes for each and every child at Robins Lane. We welcome opportunities to involve parents in the life of the school through celebration assemblies; Family Learning Days; parent workshops and courses; Parent Consultation Meetings; our PTFA, as we know that we cannot play our role as effectively without this valuable support.

Finally, we are so fortunate at Robins Lane to have a friendly, approachable and extremely professional staff team, supported by a highly effective Governing body, both absolutely committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of all learners. They work tirelessly to ensure that children move onto their chosen High School as confident learners, well-equipped personally, socially, emotionally and academically for the next stage on their life-long, learning journey.

We hope this website proves useful and gives a flavour of Robins Lane. We organise regular tours of school for prospective parents when you can see us ‘in action’. If you would like to find out more about Robins Lane, first hand, or to make any other enquiries, please contact the school office and we will be only too happy to help.

Thank you for visiting our website.
