Welcome to Riddings Junior School
Welcome to a new school year to all our children and a special welcome to all those children and parents/carers who are joining us for the first time.
The building works continued over the summer break and we have been able to move into the new class and office block. The school office is now situated at the entrance to the new block through the automatic door. The main pupil gate is to the left of the block and the children will all enter school through this from now on. At the end of the school day Years 4-6 will leave through this gate and Year 3 will leave from the back of school - parents/carers can meet them on the rear playground initially.
Other building works will be happening inside school this term with the refurbishment of the toilets creating new facilities that can be used no matter which side of the school the children are and with luck new windows on the second floor - improving ventilation and warmth. Both of these works will mean a huge improvement!
We work together to ensure that all children can be successful both academically and as members of society.
We strive to improve standards and maintain high expectations for all, helping children to aspire to the best they can be.
Children enjoy coming to school - they are challenged to be responsible for their own learning and through our stimulating curriculum extend their understanding of the world around them.
We work together as a community, everyday, to make sure our children are fully equipped for their future, showing
PRIDE in who they are
PRIDE in what they can achieve
PRIDE in who they may become and
PRIDE in our shared values.
Each of our classes is named after one of the soldiers who are named on the war memorial outside of St James' Church.

Mr Jones has led a number of online safety assemblies - these are a regular feature of school life as we stress the importance of staying safe online. All the children were reminded of the need to be SMART when going online.
Have you seen the super display in the conservatory?
As a school we take internet safety very seriously and stress the need for everyone to use the internet in a safe and responsible manner. Please read the Keeping Our Children Safe link under the 'Parents' tab for more information.
