Mr Ken James


We are very proud of the way our community is responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. Red House has established a virtual learning platform which is second to none. Numerous parents have congratulated us on maintaining high academic standards whilst also protecting the emotional well-being of the pupils in very challenging circumstances. Group tutorial, individual calls to pupils and fun activities, all ensure the pupils remain connected and feel part of our wonderful community.

Throughout lockdown, the school continues to be open for the children of critical workers. We do not merely provide fun activities: we keep their learning going. Many of our parents are front line workers and we are pleased to be able to support their tremendous work. The school has also previously provided a bus service between the local hospitals for key staff and produced PPE equipment for local surgeries; we are doing all we can to help.

Whatever the future brings, we’re ready. We have recruited extra staff to ensure our maximum class size is 18 (and very often less than 15). Should there be further lockdowns, we will be ready to launch our virtual school again. Red House has been challenged over the last few months but, like our children, we have been resilient and adaptable. Whatever the future brings, we will get through this together.

With best wishes

Ken James
