Headteacher's Welcome Message

Welcome to Reddal Hill Primary School


Hello and thank you for taking the time to visit our school website. My name is Mrs. Ann Bashir-Pugh and this is now my sixth year as headteacher at this school, and I can wholeheartedly state, that I am still extremely proud to be part of such a fantastic school with amazing pupils, staff and families. 


I believe that Reddal Hill is an exceptionally happy and friendly community school which is situated in the Cradley Heath and Old Hill ward in Sandwell. The school had a successful Ofsted Inspection in May 2022, and we are really proud to be graded as a ‘Good’ school.

Please take the opportunity to read our very positive Ofsted report, on the school website.


Reddal Hill is part of a close-knit community whose children and families come from many different backgrounds, which we feel is a real strength of the school. 'Pupils, staff, parents and governors describe the school as a happy place to be.' (Ofsted 2022).


Ofsted (2022), noted that ''Relationships across the school are positive. Pupils are polite and courteous. Behaviour around school is good...'  Moreover, 'Pupils work hard in lessons and enjoy their learning. (They) listen carefully to their teachers and each other...Pupils understand the importance of learning. (Pupils) told inspectors that what they learn today is important for tomorrow.'


Reddal Hill comprises of staff and governors who are very proud to be members of the school. We share a deep commitment to putting our pupils at the heart of everything that we do as well as providing the best possible education for all of our pupils. 'Leaders and staff want pupils to do well. They have high expectations of every pupil.'  (Ofsted 2022).


Reddal Hill achieved the Sandwell Wellbeing Charter Mark (June 2021), which illustrates our commitment in creating a school that promotes the wellbeing of our pupils, staff and parents / families. 'Leaders ensure a high focus on pupils’ personal development.' (Ofsted 2022). 


We greatly value and encourage the participation of our parents / families in the education of their children and we aspire to work in partnership with them for the benefit of our pupils.  We have a dynamic Parents and Teachers Association, (PTA), who enrich the lives of our pupils through a range of exciting experiences, as well as raising money for excellent resources.  Please take a look at our PTA web page on the school website. 


The pupils' motto at Reddal Hill is ‘GLEE – Growing, Learning, Enjoying and Excellence.’ This is a true reflection of the practice that you will see across the school if you ever have the opportunity to visit us.  'The school’s motto – GLEE (growing, learning, enjoying, excellence) – is certainly lived out at Reddal Hill.'  (Ofsted 2022). 


We hope that you do pay us a visit if you are interested in sending you child / children to Reddal Hill Primary School. 


Kind regards,


Mrs. Ann Bashir-Pugh
