Redgate Primary School

About This School

Redgate Community Primary school is a caring, innovative and inclusive primary school in Formby, Merseyside, in which young people thrive and flourish. At Redgate we are proud to offer a broad and creative curriculum in a happy and caring environment that enables every child to reach their full potential. We provide opportunities for each child to find and follow their individual talents and interests and actively encourage them to have a global outlook while understanding the culture, heritage and diversity of life in the UK, their local area and our school. Our arts curriculum allows our children to explore their own responses to what they see around them, develop their creative techniques and their appreciation of great artists, both current and in history. Inspired by the landscape artwork of David Hockney, Year 5 children created their own oil pastel pieces of Formby pinewoods and nature reserve.
