Welcome to Riddings Junior School
Progress, Respect, Independence,
Determination and Excellence
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.
Our 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.
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 and the recent news entry directing you to a useful resource for determining the appropriateness of various websites, Apps and Games that your child might be accessing.
CEOP helps any child or young person under the age of 18 who is being pressured, forced or tricked into taking part in sexual activity of any kind. This can be something that has taken place either online or in ‘the real world’, or both. The CEOP Safety Centre has clear information and advice on what can be reported to CEOP, the reporting process and what will happen if you do decide to make a report. You can visit the CEOP Safety Centre and make a report directly to CEOP by clicking the Click CEOP button. If you are experiencing online bullying or something else online has worried you please speak to an adult you trust, or you can talk to Childline at any time on 0800 1111 or at www.childline.org.uk.
As a school community ensuring the safety of our children is paramount.

Anti-Bullying Week 2021: One Kind Word
The theme for Anti-Bullying Week, 2021 was: One Kind Word. It started with Odd Socks Day to mark the first day of Anti-Bullying Week. Last year 75% of schools in the country took part, reaching well over 7 million young people.
All classes focused on the Anti-Bullying message but as ever Anti-Bullying is something that we refer to regularly with the children reminding them that no-one should be made to feel different by others. The most important thing for any child to do is to 'Tell' - this way problems can be sorted quickly and before they escalate.
