The Rackham Church of England (VC) Primary School

Working together to be the best we can possibly be

Hello and a very warm welcome to The Rackham Church of England (VC) Primary School.

Our website is designed to give you a flavour of our school and we invite you to visit to find out more.

We serve the community of Witchford and outlying villages. The Rackham is 1.5 form entry school with a distinctive Christian ethos. We are inclusive and welcome all children and their families.

The team at The Rackham support every child to develop a love of learning through achievement whatever their starting point. We engage and motivate our children to learn through a variety of approaches and opportunities. A range of clubs and after school activities provide opportunities to try new things and follow interests.

Starting school is an exciting time for both child and family. Each unique and precious child will be welcomed into The Rackham with care, love and support. We are committed to ensuring that all children have a stimulating, challenging and fun learning experience. We help our pupils develop the skills they need to be the best they can possibly be in a rapidly changing world. Pupils at The Rackham are supported to develop a moral and spiritual awareness appropriate for the society to which we all belong; a community in which we have not only rights but also responsibilities.

At The Rackham our aim is to inspire all children to see learning as a journey, a route to experiencing enjoyment and fulfilment. We want our pupils to develop a love of learning, feel passionate about discovering new things and have real ownership of learning outcomes.

The Rackham is a place where everyone is included and valued. We believe that every child has a voice and should always be listened to. We are proud that our children enjoy coming to school, knowing education and care are at the centre of everything they do.

With a focus on excellence, creative thinking and challenge, we nurture and celebrate individual talents and interests, emphasising high expectations and always trying one’s best in every situation. Our Christian values underpin our approach and provide our children with a clear understanding of how to become lifelong learners.

Please contact our office to arrange a visit, we look forward to meeting you!

Best wishes,

Georgina Turner
