Rutherford House recognised as ‘School Heroes’

We are very proud of our Trust School in Balham to be recognised by their local MP, Dr. Rosena Allin-Khan, as local ‘School Heroes’ for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic both supporting home-learning and then re-opening on 1st June 2020 and since 22nd June welcoming every year group of pupils back before the summer holidays.

This is the nomination for Head Teacher, Mrs Maxine Mallet, and her whole staff team …

Dr Allin-Khan wrote the following letter whilst sending the certificate to the school before the end of term / 2019-2020 academic year.

Here is the certificate itself, which will be officially presented to the school’s staff when social distance visiting allows in the autumn term.

‘Well Done’ Mrs Mallett and the whole Rutherford House School Team!

Easter Break – Huge Thank You to parents, carers, pupils and staff

Easter Break – Huge Thank You to parents, carers, pupils and staff

As we come to the end of a very strange two weeks of home-schooling, we as a Trust want to wish all our parents, carers, pupils, supplier partners and staff restful Easter Break – whatever it looks likes …. we have sent this ‘Thank You‘ letter home to every family in the Trust and a a similar one to every member of staff.

We wait to hear from the Government what the next steps are, the next instructions as we would normally start a busy Summer Term.  As soon as we know we will communicate, plan and deliver!


Best Wishes

Mark Greatrex,

Chief Executive BPET
