The Pines

Welcome to The Pines

Welcome to our amazing complex needs resource base at Redgate Community Primary School.

Although we very much operate as a whole inclusive unit, we also consist of three classes within The Pines. All children, families and staff in The Pines are supported by our Pines lead and Assistant Head Louise Dean. We have Natterjacks who are our youngest children, and they are lead by Bethan Kiernan. We then have our Woodpeckers who are taught by Oliver Stretton, and lastly but by no means least we have our fabulous Foxes who are lead by Freya Armstrong. Our amazing team wouldn't be complete without our team of dedicated and wonderful support staff.

Please visit our individual class pages for more information about all of the exciting, engaging and fun learning that happens across The Pines.

You can also see everything we get up to on our exciting Twitter page

Parent Feedback 2020

Parent feedback

Our children and families are at the Centre of everything we do here at The Pines, and so we wanted to share feedback we have recently received from our fantastic families.

Within the Pines we are always very active and spend a great deal of time outdoors, so children will all need wellies and a wet suit to keep in school with them.

Spare clothes are also very useful to keep in school in case of messy/water play.
