Welcome Message From The Headteacher


Learning together
Respecting each other
Success for all

As Headteacher here at Little Reddings Primary School, I would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone who accesses this school website.

  • You may be here to learn a little more about the school, the staff or the curriculum.
  • You may wish to check term dates, latest newsletters or school policies.
  • You may wish to have a look at our latest prospectus or the most recent Ofsted report.

All of this information and so much more can be located on this newly updated website, which we hope you will enjoy navigating. The website contains a lot of information that we hope you find useful – whether you are a current parent/pupil or a prospective parent/pupil! It is constantly being updated, so please keep checking back.

Many visitors to our school comment on the warm welcome that they receive and the friendly atmosphere that exists in school. We like to think that this is because we have lovely staff who value our children and their families, and work very hard to give them a rich and fulfilling experience; helping them become the very best that they can be.

If you have any questions that are not answered on this website, please do not hesitate to contact us by phone or email – we will be very happy to help.

Miss Carly Simmonds


Schools at the heart of their community

Bushey St James Trust was established in February 2012 as a partnership between Bushey Meads Secondary School and Little Reddings Primary School.

We were delighted when the opportunity arose for both schools to become academies under one Trust. From the outset there was a determination for the schools to ‘do something different’ rather than to continue in the same way as we had before conversion. Therefore, the status has provided an impetus for development which has taken the form of sharing facilities and expertise, and developing the curriculum between the two schools.

There is a shared vision to develop first class provision between phases and to:

• aim for excellence in all we do,
• provide students with the best possible start for their futures
• nurture greater integration and community cohesion
• provide a programme of high quality continuing professional development and training for all staff to underpin and sustain improvements in teaching and learning
• emphasise to students the traditional values of self-discipline, responsibility, respect, trust and cooperation
