Headteacher’s Welcome



We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to St Richard's Catholic Primary School website.


There is much to celebrate at St Richard's - you will find a warm, welcoming family atmosphere where we learn to love and grow in Jesus. The children are very happy and enjoy learning. We are very fortunate to have such a dedicated team of teachers, teaching assistants and other staff who strive to ensure that every child is successful, confident and responsible, equipped with all the skills they need to continue on their future learning journey. 


We work in partnership with parents and carers and very much value the support and contribution they make to school life. The school also enjoys a close partnership with St Richard's Parish. Because home, school and parish work together, we are able to provide a happy, caring and effective learning environment, where expectations and standards are high. We have carefully designed our curriculum to develop thinking knowledge, skills, creativity and spirituality, encouraging confidence and opportunities for children to be excited about learning and challenged to achieve their very best.


We hope that you enjoy looking around our website and get a feel for a vibrant and exciting school that puts children first and genuinely believes every single child matters.
