We have invested heavily to ensure that our school is a high-quality learning environment for the children and a wonderful place for staff to work. Promoting the well-being and happiness of our staff and children is a high priority. Children love learning at Russell Lower School and thrive, achieving good standard, in our warm, caring and friendly environment. We have recently received another 'Good' Ofsted grading (November 2022), where it was noted: "Pupils understand that school is a place to word hard and they show positive attitudes towards learning." "Pupils behave well because they have clear routines and boundaries... This enables them to learn." "Leaders promote pupils' wider development well." "Pupils are friendly and happy." "School is a nurturing and caring environment for all pupils." "Parents, carers and staff are all very positive about the school."
