Welcome to our school

Welcome to the Ryders Green Website. My name is Lucy Blackmore and I am the Head Teacher of this wonderful school. There are so many fabulous things I want to tell you about Ryders Green Primary so I hope that you will find this website both informative and useful. Through our website, we aim to give you the full flavour of all that we offer the children and families of Ryders Green.

We provide the highest quality education for children from 3 up to 11 years of age. In that time we make sure that they have lots of exciting learning opportunities to enable them make the most of their one chance at primary school. After up to seven years at Ryders Green we guarantee that your child will be a confident, aspiring, respectful and enthusiastic learner and citizen. We offer a curriculum where your child can explore, develop and achieve. We sincerely hope that your child will leave with a strong sense of achievement, satisfaction and a life long love for learning.

If you would like to visit us, please call the school office to make an appointment as we would love you to see for yourself what a truly wonderful school Ryders Green is.

I personally look forward to meeting you and showing you around our lovely school. 

Children's University

This month we are doing lots of celebrating at Ryders Green as our 2017 graduates will have their ceremonies this month. So many of our children take part in after-school clubs to collect up 'hours' in their Children's University passport.

We have two graduation ceremonies this month, with the children getting to wear their caps and gowns to receive a certificate to mark their outstanding achievement and dedication to after-school activities.

Take a look at our after school clubs page to find out about all of the wonderful clubs we have on offer - from ukulele to flim club! The choice is endless!

Educational Visits

We at Ryders Green understand the importance of giving children as many different experiences as possible during their one chance at primary school. All children take part in a wide variety of visits, linked to closely to their topic to inspire and engage.

The children across the whole school take part in a local trip, a trip further afield and they also have a visitor into school. We ask the children to make a contribution of only £5 for all three activities so that they can all enjoy and learn from the carefully planned activities selected by our wonderful teachers.

We are very keen for the children to experience as many different places that form part of our history and understand how life in Britain has been influenced and changed through the generations.

Take a look at our gallery to see some of the places we have visited recently.

'We learnt how Tim Peake would feel in space, it really helped me imagine what it would be like!' Year 5 student

'The Roman Villa was very different to my house and I could understand what life might have been like.' Year 3 student

'Life in Roman times was very different to our lives today, but it is good that they left behind some of their inventions like the roads.' Year 3 student

'The castle was amazing! It is so big and I would love to be a Knight.' Year 1 student


Year 6 Residential

We had lots of excited Year 6 children (and staff!) at school today ready to head off on their residential. We will keep updating below, so check back soon for more information about what they are getting up to!

Friday evening:

After loading up the coach we set off for the much anticipated weekend....excited to see what adventures we could get up to! We all arrived safe and sound, eager to get to our rooms and unpack. Everyone is settled and made the most of a little free time to enjoy the sunshine. Everyone enjoyed their meal and ate well. This evening, we are going to enjoy a campfire and then get to bed on time; the teachers are convinced we are going to sleep soundly! 

Saturday update:

We've had a brilliant day! Everybody slept well last night and we were all up before 7 and ready for breakfast.It has been very hot and sunny all day but we have all managed to avoid sunburn! We've all had a lot of fun and only a few people didn't attempt the activities. We are all incredibly excited for raft building tomorrow and the teachers are hoping for another peaceful night.

Sunday update:

We've had a great day and are all loaded on to the coach heading home. Our estimated time of arrival is between 7.10-7.30 pm. See you all shortly!
