Responsibility  Resilience  Respect  Teamwork

On behalf of all the children, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Rydon Primary School. 

We are a school that likes to celebrate success at every level. The life of the school is driven by enthusiasm and a desire to achieve. We promote learning that is active and purposeful and encourages children to embrace challenge and celebrate success. Our curriculum is broad and engaging giving children opportunities to participate in a wide range of cross-curricular activities.

We place a huge importance on developing the unique potential of each child. We teach children the importance of responsibility, and strive to develop confident and resilient learners who are respectful of themselves and of others.

An essential ingredient for this to happen is teamwork. We view education as a joint venture, involving everyone – children, parents, staff, Governors and the wider community. Through these partnerships we aim to provide the best possible educational experience for each child and their family.

We look forward to working with you and your child.


Catherine Willcocks, Headteacher

Welcome to Rydon Primary School
Sun Safe

During the summer months  children are encouraged to bring  and wear a plain and named sun hat or cap to school.
  • Please apply sunscreen to your child before they come to school on sunny days.
  • If your child is prone to burning and you feel they may need an additional application please send in a labelled bottle of sunscreen, which your child should give to the class teacher.
  • Your child will be able to apply their sunscreen to themselves when needed, under the supervision of a staff member.
       Please be aware that certain sun creams do contain nut oils. We ask that these brands are not brought to school as we have pupils and staff with severe allergies.
Severe Weather Procedures

During episodes of bad weather we will always endeavour to keep our school open, with safety being our first priority. In the event of severe weather please check this area of the website for updates and notices. If the school has to close, a text message will be sent to all parents/carers to advise you of the closure.
