Our greatest assets are the children we serve. Wherever we go and whoever visits our school, there is always one message that comes back to Ruislip Gardens “your children are exceptional”.
Their behaviour, their attitudes to learning, their kindness, consideration
and manners are all exemplary. They are confident and caring, independent and inclusive, successful and sensitive and above all, happy!
We believe these successes manifest themselves because we promote teaching of the 'whole child' rather than narrowly 'chasing results'. We deliver a rich and rounded curriculum with a wealth of extra opportunities for children in terms of school visits and activities. We have a strong sporting tradition, often winning trophies in borough football, netball and rounders tournaments. We have gained success with our athletics team and our swimming team in the annual swimming gala. Our children relish challenges, both academic and extra-curricular.
We value the contribution that the Arts make in enhancing and enriching our curriculum and we are always seeking to provide opportunities for our pupils to engage with, and participate in, a range of arts-related activities and have been awarded the Arts Mark.
We encourage independence and responsibility in our children. The older pupils become 'buddies' to younger children and provide a level of care and companionship during the busy playtime. In Year 6 children are given the opportunity to run for House Captain; following elections and voting within the school the successful candidates take on various responsibilities around the school including the organisation of house competitions. The school council allows children from Years 2 to 6 to make important contributions to decision making in the school.
The Staff at Ruislip Gardens comprises hardworking and dedicated professionals. Their relationship with the children in their care is one of understanding, respect and encouragement. We believe in fostering confidence and independence so that the children who leave us are well-rounded, successful and articulate individuals with a keen desire to learn.
