The Russell School Campus

Welcome to Strathmore at The Russell School

We are Strathmore School’s Primary Campus on the Petersham side of the river where we are co-located with The Russell Primary School.

Here we have 3 classes for learners aged 4 to 11.

Our Early Years and Key Stage 1 Class ‘Delphini’ follows the Early Years Framework.

Our two Key Stage 1/2 classes ‘Luna’ and ‘Hercules’ follow a themed curriculum which is based on the National Curriculum.

We ensure that all our pupils have the opportunity to follow a curriculum that is individual, differentiated, engaging and meaningful. Curriculum themes run half termly and opportunities for meaningful inclusion with our co-located school are always maximised when appropriate.

As with all pupils of Strathmore School therapies such as SALT, OT, PT, Music Therapy and Play Therapy are incorporated into the learners’ day based on their individual needs. We work closely with our colleagues in health and social care to provide integrated therapies in order to identify and follow each young person’s bespoke learning pathway. We also use ‘Strathmore Approaches’ which is our portfolio of specialist strategies that support our pupils to reach their full potential in a safe and happy environment.

Our Primary campus is always looking for opportunities to be an important part of our community and extended learning continues outside of the classroom whenever possible.

Examples include:

  • Exploring Richmond Park
  • Primary Dance and Drama Festivals
  • Inclusive Sport Events
  • Singing and Music events such as Knellar Hall
  • Inclusion with The Russell School, our co-located Primary School.

Our partnership with The Russell School

Collaborative learning is at the heart of everything we do at Strathmore and we are delighted to be co-located with The Russell School as we have a shared culture of inclusion.  Our shared provision is adapted to meet the individual needs of our pupils and is highly beneficial for both school communities. 

Our social inclusion opportunities include eating lunch in the shared hall, joining in with play and social opportunities in the playground and a Volunteer Inclusion Partnership (VIP) programme.  The VIPs are Russell School pupils from Years 4 to 6 who come and help with reading, ICT, play and special events.   Interaction levels have increased between Strathmore and Russell pupils through our shared inclusion programme and has supported both sets of pupils to get to know each other better.

In terms of curriculum inclusion, we are offering a bespoke inclusion programme which enables our pupils to join their mainstream peers for meaningful curriculum focused activities, such as PE, explorative play and creative arts, with the correct support needed to make the learning accessible.
