The Richmond Motto is
‘Learning and Achieving Together’.
We passionately believe that all pupils are entitled to receive an inspiring and challenging curriculum which enables pupils to develop their natural curiosity, make strong links between subjects and achieve well.
We know that children who are enthusiastic and able readers are better equipped to engage and achieve in all areas of learning, so we have therefore adopted a book-based curriculum. Each year group’s termly work is centred around a high quality class text, with the progression of reading skills (both decoding and comprehension) interweaved with reading for pleasure and explicit links to work in other areas of the curriculum.
The curriculum is further enriched by regular visits and visitors linked to themes being studied, a range of extra-curricular clubs as well as residential trips in Years Four, Five and Six.
To that end, each subject that we teach has a rationale that explains the Intent, Implementation and Impact for that subject.
