Richmond Hill is a single form entry school which places our children and families at the heart of everything we do. We are situated on the edge of the Solway plain and the edge of The Lake District. In our recent inspection (November 2021) we were rated good by Ofsted.

Your child's learning journey can begin with us from age two in our wonderful nursery provision, where we promote curiosity, use of rich language, a love of stories, books, singing and exploring our vast outdoor environment.

Our curriculum reflects our locality and provides opportunities for children to sequentially build and deepen their knowledge, skills and understanding across all subjects, underpinned by a solid foundation in reading, writing and maths. 

Our carefully planned curriculum provides opportunities to develop their cultural capital, whilst our values are embedded to promote successful relationships and allow our pupils to generate aspirations for their future learning.

Our website will inform you of our curriculum coverage across school, expectations in each year group, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.

A strong partnership between school and home is so important to us. It is by working together that your child can move forward successfully on their learning journey. 

You are welcome guests in our school and there are many occasions and events throughout the year when the success and achievements of the children will be shared.  These occasions are so special to share with your children and we love providing them for you.

We will always strive to solve any problems as quickly as possible. However, the earlier you tell us your concerns, the sooner we can take action.

I look forward to a successful partnership with you, working together for your child.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to our website, and that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school direct with any queries you may have.

The arrangements for safeguarding are effective. Governors and leaders make sure that all staff have regular training in a range of safeguarding matters. Staff are vigilant and know how to recognise signs of abuse and neglect. They know how to report their concerns if they have any worries about a pupil. Leaders have strong working relationships with a range of other professionals. This enables them to get help for pupils and their families if needed. Staff teach pupils how to keep themselves safe. For example, pupils learn how to stay safe when they use the internet.
