At Raddlebarn Primary School children's mental health, well-being and education is of vital importance to us. We pride ourselves on being a real learning community: working in an atmosphere of care, trust and respect, where staff and children feel nurtured, valued and supported by one another.

Raddlebarn Primary School is a popular two form entry school in Selly Oak. Our mission statement is our school’s main aim: ‘Success for All’. We are a fully inclusive school where all the children achieve. In our school ‘it is alright to be different’ and ‘there are no outsiders.’ This is achieved through the fundamental British Values of respect and tolerance, democracy, individual liberty and rule of law. We celebrate and recognise all children’s talents, both within and beyond our school and these are reflected in our shared values and vision.

We provide a wide range of opportunities and learning challenges for all children, whatever their abilities. We encourage children to value their own achievements, both personal and academic and to celebrate the success of others. We help children to improve their skills and abilities with determination, persistence and to be prepared to work to the best of their abilities both alone and in co-operation with others.

As a school, we pride ourselves on the professional development we offer our staff, which has a direct and positive impact on our pupils’ learning. We are extremely proud to be a Rights Respecting School and a Music Quality Mark school, with an active orchestra and school choirs.
