Welcome to Riddings Junior School
Progress, Respect, Independence,
Determination and Excellence
Happy New Year.
We hope you all had a good Christmas break.
It's been lovely to welcome back all the children and our term has got off to a flying start with Year 6 and 7 staff heading off to perform in an amazing Young Voices concert on Tuesday - this is always one of the highlights of the children's time at school.
It's also been straight back to work for all classes with reminders about how important is is to keep their reading skills sharp at home along with practising their number skills on Numbots and TTRockstars. Our January newsletter will be coming home shortly (an electronic version is available under the Parents tab) sharing lots of news from last term and what there is to look forward to up until Easter.
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.
