Welcome to Riddings Junior School
We are already into the second half of the Autumn term and time seems to be flying towards a busy Christmas period with lots to look forward to at school. Year 3 are happily settled and our recent Parents' Consultations saw plenty of positive conversations happening. The results of our parent questionnaires can be seen by clicking on the tab above that says 'Parents'.
Our move into the new class and office block have gone well and Shrewsbury Class are thoroughly enjoying their new classroom. The school office is situated on the right hand side of the new block through the automatic door.
The main pupil gate is to the left and the children all enter school through this. At the end of the school day Years 4-6 leave through the gate and Year 3 from the back of school.
Other building work has seen the phase 1 of the new toilets created where the old boys toilets were - they look so much better. Phase 2 has now been started turning the old girl toilets into a much improved facility for the children. After this has been done we will hopefully then start on replacing the upstairs windows, after which we might be able to breathe following 3 years of building work!
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.
