I would like to welcome you to Rykneld Primary School. We pride ourselves on our passion and enthusiasm from all of our adults in school towards caring, supporting, nurturing and educating our children. We all love to see our children succeed but here at Rykneld, we like to enrich our children through the exciting curriculum that we offer, both in and outside of the classroom.
As a school, we pride ourselves in placing children at the centre of all that we do, focusing on their academic and personal development and reaching their potential in both. We love our school and are very proud of our achievements. We place great importance on learning and creating a learning community for children and adults alike.
As the school continues to grow, we are determined to offer a setting and environment which is deemed exceptional for both our pupils and staff. We are driven and supported by the JTMAT in our vision to provide the very best resources and facilities and we are excited to continue to develop our environment with a recent full refurbishment to our Early Years setting, school hall and Year 1 classrooms.
Forest Schools has now been fully implemented for ALL children throughout our school and each child has the opportunity to participate in these exciting sessions for a half termly period of time. We have developed our Outdoor setting and we are soon to start work on our Outdoor Classroom.
We are a highly inclusive school and make sure that everyone can succeed in a place where they feel safe, happy and well. We are proud to be recognised as Runners Up in the National SEND Awards for 2019-2020 and this is a reflection of the considerable efforts that we all make towards an inclusive environment. Safeguarding children is very, very important to us. We take great care in making sure that our policies reflect our practice and procedures.
Children have a voice at our school. They are encouraged to help make decisions about changes we make. Some children are chosen, through a democratic election, to be on the School Council, become digital leaders, sports ambassadors, anti-bullying ambassadors, librarians as well as other forms of representative opportunities.
We have an open door policy and you will always be welcome here. Come and see what we are and what we do!
Mr. R. Cruise
