The Head Teacher is assisted by a team of dedicated professionals who are committed to the welfare, education and development of children in their care, ensuring the continued success of the school.

Prior to entering Runnymede, potential pupils are invited to attend an assessment where they are skilfully assessed by our staff. 

For Preschool and Reception age children, assessment takes place over half a day, and takes the form of an informal taster session where staff can observe and interact with children to identify their strengths and areas for development.

For children in Prep 1 - 6 inclusive, the assessment takes place over a day during which the child will spend the day with the relevant class, and will be assessed by the class teacher in terms of their strengths and areas for development.   

Feedback on the assessment is given to parents by the Head Teacher. Depending on the results of the assessment, along with the most recent school report from the child’s current school (where appropriate), an offer of a place may be made.
