A warm welcome to the website of The Raglan Schools, a federation of Raglan Infant and Raglan Junior schools in Enfield. I am proud to be the Executive Headteacher of both schools leading the education, care and guidance of 930 pupils aged 3 to 11 years.
We have a happy thriving school with great children and staff, who all strive to do their very best. We aim for all children to develop their skills to a high standard in Reading, Writing and Maths, alongside a broad and balanced curriculum enriched with opportunities to thrive and be creative.
We have specialist teachers in Music, PE, Computing and Art & Design leading to excellent outcomes and a wide variety of opportunities within the curriculum and beyond. With around 45 after-school clubs a week, we offer a range of opportunities for children to follow their interests and develop their skills.
Since the federation was formed in 2011, the schools have been going from strength to strength, working hard together creating a seamless learning journey from Nursery through to Year 6. Both schools have a "Good" rating by OfSTED and were last inspected in April 2023 (Infants) and March 2019 (Juniors). In the latest ungraded inspection, there was enough evidence of improved performance in the Infant School to suggest that the school could have been judged outstanding if it had been a full inspection. Standards are high and by the end of Year 6, achievement is above the national average.
We have a thriving community including a proactive Governing Body and a parent-led charity, the RSA (Raglan Schools Association) who are successful in raising money and supporting the federation's initiatives. The Raglan Wrap Club provides extended care from 7.30am to 6pm and The Hub is our community space offering learning opportunities for parents and pre-school activities.
If you are a visitor to our website, perhaps a parent looking for a prospective school, I hope you will gain a flavour of our community. Of course, the best way to find out is to pay us a visit.
