Welcome to our school!
Richard Atkins is a warm, vibrant and inclusive school, at the heart of its community. With a purpose driven, high quality provision, we endeavour to foster fundamental values including growth, integrity, courage, excellence, curiosity and empowerment.
I am extremely privileged to work with a talented, dedicated and caring staff team who work hard to ensure that every child’s needs are met socially, emotionally, physically and academically. Our curriculum is creative and inspiring and filled with rich experiences to enhance our pupils’ learning and broaden their horizons.
In addition to maintaining high standards across the curriculum, our dedicated team make it their job to harness and encapsulate personal strengths. From music to martial arts we strive to build a curriculum around the child to both challenge and enthuse our pupils and inspire curiosity and the courage to succeed.
We value the support of our committed parents and carers, working in close partnership with them and the wider community to ensure the best possible outcomes for all our pupils. We aim to co-raise principled young people and to expose them to learning that has meaning far beyond school life.
Our pupils are an absolute delight; visitors always comment on how polite, respectful and welcoming our pupils are and we are extremely proud of each and every one of them!
We know, with an outstanding education, where 21st century education means just that and every child has the freedom to choose their own future, we can be confident that the legacy of an education at Richard Atkins will ensure our pupils are fully equipped to grasp life’s opportunities and exceed their potential.
I hope you find our website informative but would invite you to come and visit; I would be delighted to welcome you and showcase our wonderful school.
