Welcome to Richmount Primary School’s website. 
 
This website has been designed to provide you with useful information and give you some insight into the educational opportunities available in this school 
 
I hope the information will be of benefit and interest. We believe that our pupils are our greatest assets and together form our most convincing advertisement. 
 
We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum with due emphasis given to academic achievement, basic skills, the opportunity for physical development and a social and moral environment which encourages the principles of honesty and integrity, self confidence and a consideration of others. 
 
A close partnership between home and school is highly valued and is fostered in numerous ways throughout the school year.

Richmount Cook Book Launches! 
The PTA of Richmount Primary School have been very busy over the past weeks putting together a cook book of all your favourite recipes sent into school earlier in the term. The book will be available from Thursday 1st December and each family in school will be sent home 2 cook books to see what they are like and hopefully purchase as a great Christmas present! The books cost £6 each and money should be sent to Mr Clyde in school. If you need extra copies please let Mr Clyde know. The books will also be on sale at craft fairs and other local events prior to Christmas.  
 
The school would like to thank the PTA committee for all their hard work in producing the book and we hope to raise a good profit for PTA funds. The PTA would like to thank all the sponsors who placed an advert in the cook book which helped towards overall printing costs. 
 
Pictured are the individual winners of the drawings for the cook book chosen by Mrs Kennedy, chairperson of the school Board of Governors. The PTA donated money towards their prizes.. 
 

Aspire, Aim and Achieve 

In school we have designed a new noticeboard which will enable us to highlight achievement by pupils each month. This board allows us to celebrate the achievement by a pupil from each year group plus the after school club. Certificates are awarded during a full school assembly on the last Friday of each month. 
 
We encourage all of our pupils to “Aspire, Aim and Achieve” in everything they do both in school and at home.
