At Richmond Hill Primary Academy, we are United in Learning Together
We are a two form entry, mixed, non-denominational primary Academy for local children aged 3-11. We want to ensure that we can create an outstanding Academy that our community can take pride in, growing upon our family atmosphere and nurturing ethos
Our core values are perseverance and effort, resourcefulness, thoughtfulness and attitude, friendliness, tolerance and sharing. We instil these values throughout our learning, through using good manners to one another and by fairness & truthfulness in all things.
Our house system recognises togetherness in teams and shows the importance of effort in all we do; the importance of behaviour for learning through our Perfect Purple system and through the appreciation of positive relationships – caring and helping others, forgiveness and starting afresh.
United in Learning Together
We have the highest ambitions for all our pupils within a broad curriculum, which focusses on English and Maths until mastery is gained and breadth can be offered. Our curriculum is enriched with music (specifically vocals), art, DT and PE, extended with science and ICT and broadened with history, geography, RE and Modern Foreign Languages.
We are very proud to count the following accolades for our pupils’ achievements: winners of the Doncaster Athletic local Championships for ten years running, girls’ football county finalists, winners of both the Don Valley Festival and the Robin Hood Junior choir, and the winning Academy of the South Yorkshire Spelling Bee.
We hope that this community focus on determination and enthusiasm will be an inspiration to our pupils.
Our dedicated teachers and staff are wholly committed to ensuring the success of every child. We’re also committed to working closely with parents, carers and families to achieve this.
Our Academy will do everything possible to ensure that every child achieves or exceeds the educational expectations for their age every year. We will provide excellent teaching and engaging & stimulating lessons. Pupils’ conduct is often the root of direct compliments to the Academy, as we take responsibility for nurturing and developing the personal qualities of every child, emphasising the importance of exemplary behaviour for success in, and outside, the Academy.
Supporting your Child’s Education
Children whose families are involved and interested in their learning do well. We communicate with parents regularly to encourage wide participation and honest conversation. We expect all parents to support their children’s educational aspirations and achievements.
Our aim is that Richmond Hill will be an outstanding local Academy whose pupils are happy and successful. Please browse our website to find out how we plan to do it and come and meet us to find out what we can offer your child.
