We were inspected by Ofsted in November 2022 and received a Good judgement in every single inspection category with a Good rating overall.

We're a Microsoft Showcase School!

Richmond has HEART

An engaging Curriculum that prepares children for the future

A modern approach to teaching and learning

Devices for every child

Purposeful integration of technology

A child-centred, collaborative environment

A close knit community

A caring, supportive and responsive EYFS

A smooth transition from EYFS to KS1

We believe that expecting our 5-year-old children to settle down to formal lessons as soon as they move into Year 1 is wrong. We passionately believe that young children learn best through play and exploration and therefore follow a ‘Continuous Provision’ method to ensure that children experience a smooth transition into more formal teaching. This results in happier, more engaged children, who are able to develop a lifelong love of learning.
