General Details


Rendlesham Primary school was built in 2006 and sits in the heart of a growing community. The school has developed steadily over the years and has increased the PAN from 30 to 45. This means that eventually, all classes will be taught in a mixed age group class, with 3 classes in each phase. 

We are very proud of the pupils in our school. They regularly prove themselves to be considerate, polite, empathetic young people who have a thirst for knowledge and creativity. Our children are frequently praised for their team spirit and positive attitude and we believe that they consistently demonstrate our school values.


Rendlesham Primary school has a very supportive network of parents and governors who frequently help in the classrooms and around school. We also share our school with Rendlesham’s Children Centre, with whom we also have a very close relationship. We all work together to provide the best possible care and education for the children.


We believe that children learn when they are enjoying themselves and are safe, staff at Rendlesham are committed to safeguarding and to ensuring that the curriculum they deliver is  creative and meaningful. Our timetable allows us to focus daily on basic skills, offers daily teaching of core subjects which we believe are the building blocks for all curriculum areas. We are committed to raising standards and work as a team to ensure that the needs of all our pupils are met fully. We are a fully inclusive school and pride ourselves not only in meeting the requirements of children with special educational needs but also in the value we place on what we can learn from each other.


As our school continues to grow we look forward to continuing to excite and enthuse learners of all backgrounds, welcoming diversity and positivity from all who join us.

Also has a maintained nursery school/class for 3-5 year olds.

Experience of including people with special educational needs and disabilities

We believe that all children are vulnerable to stress caused by personal circumstances and most experience behavioural or emotional disturbance at some time during their school career. Some children will show persistent patterns of disturbance over long periods, and this will be regarded as a special need.

Children may be said to have Special Educational Needs if they are not reaching their full potential due to behavioural, intellectual, physical, emotional or social reasons, or lack of resources or provision to meet identified needs.

All pupils at Rendlesham are equally valued, regardless of whether they have special educational needs. They are included in every aspect of the school including sharing meal times, school clubs and visits. Rendlesham strives to be an inclusive school, engendering a sense of community and belonging through its:

  • inclusive ethos
  • broad and balanced curriculum
  • systems for early identification of barriers to learning and participation
  • high expectations and suitable targets for all
