Welcome to

Richmond Primary School

  1. About us
  2. Meet our Head Teacher


On behalf of the governors, staff and children, I would like to extend a warm welcome to Richmond Primary School.


I am very proud to be Headteacher of our school, leading a team of dedicated staff who work closely with families to provide the best opportunities and experiences for all children to fulfil their potential.  Our school aims to provide a friendly, caring and nurturing environment, in which all children are valued and achieve their full potential.


Our school is at the heart of the community and places great emphasis on its relationships with pupils, parents and other members of the community, with children at the core of every decision we make. We will work tirelessly to equip our pupils with the knowledge, skills and attributes they need to develop as well-rounded individuals so that they are able to contribute positively to society as they develop and grow.


We want our children to be confident, ambitious and successful. For that reason, our standards and expectations of all members of our school community, irrespective of starting points or background, are extremely aspirational.


We are caring and inclusive, welcoming all children to our school community, striving to find the right balance of support and challenge to enable children to make good progress and be the best that they can be.  We put the children at the heart of everything that we do.  As a Trust, we value leadership and character development alongside academic outcomes, supporting children in embedding important life skills such as resilience, perseverance, confidence and organisation. Pupil leadership positions are widely encouraged across the school, including roles such as: School Councillors, Leadership Leaders, Eco Warriors, Sports Leaders, Sports Councillors, Digital Leaders, Peer Mediators, Anti-Bullying Ambassadors, Playground Buddies and Librarians.


We want all children to achieve the highest possible standards throughout their time with us, making maximum progress in relation to their prior learning. We want children to enjoy acquiring and using knowledge and skills to question and explore, fostering positive attitudes in order to gain independence and to become lifelong learners ready for life in Modern Britain.


Curriculum Vision and Intent



Every learner at Richmond should have the opportunity to access a knowledge-rich, broad and balanced curriculum which embeds cultural capital for the future. We want our curriculum to be community focused in order to make learning purposeful and to ensure pupils leave us as valuable citizens within the locality.


We want every learner at Richmond to have a love of learning, a curiosity about the world and enjoy coming to school on an academic and social level. We want learners to flourish within the relationships they make at school and make progress within an enriching curriculum, tailored to their needs.


Every learner at Richmond should have an equal chance to fulfil their potential. Their academic performance and limited opportunities should not limit their future success in life, study and work.


We want every learner at Richmond to be a responsible, well-rounded, inclusive citizen, who values, embraces and contributes to the local community. Every learner at Richmond should have an appreciation and understanding of the global community, valuing and respecting diversity within it.



We want every learner to have the self-confidence and self-belief to enable them to achieve their potential. Our aim is for all learners to feel secure within themselves in order to access learning and social situations.
We want our learners to tackle challenges and recover quickly from set-backs. Learners should persist with tasks and have the determination to succeed.


Richmond Primary School is a thriving school community with committed staff, supportive parents and truly wonderful children. We look forward to welcoming you to our school and to a happy and successful partnership with all our new children and families.
