Our Church School
My name is David Dyson and I am very proud to be Headteacher of Riseley C of E Primary School.
We are a school which believes in the value of every child and adult. As such we want all those who become part of our school community, whether a child or an adult, to feel valued, happy, respected and to recognise their role in continuing to make our school a great learning environment. We believe that all children who become pupils at our school deserve the best and our aim is to help them succeed by reaching their potential in every area of school life, academic, social, personal, physical and spiritual.
Within our school we work very hard to create a team of teachers, non-teaching and support staff that will support each child in reaching their potential. Many who visit us comment on the strength of our ‘staff team’ and their shared commitment to help every child in the school achieve their best. We value the broad and balanced curriculum which our staff offer and all children are able to access not only academic, but creative and physical areas of the National Curriculum fully, so that they receive the highest standard of education.
Parents are encouraged to be closely involved in their child's learning, as well as the life of the school. Our fortnightly newsletters keep our parent informed about what is happening at school and parents are invited to consultation meetings with teachers twice a year. Parents are also invited to join in with events throughout the year, e.g. Sports days, Christmas Nativities, Pantomimes, charity events and Church services. Our ‘Special Assemblies’ which are held on Friday mornings, keep parents informed of what children are learning in class. There are many ways parents can help in school; helping in class, on educational visits, or with general tasks around the school. If you are interested in helping us please let us know.
We hope as you look at our website you will gain a sense of the value that we place in each child and our desire to ensure standards, in all areas, remain as high as possible within the caring and happy community of our school.
We understand that choosing the right school for your child is an important decision for every parent. You are warmly invited to come and see the school in action to help you decide whether our school is right for your child. The School Prospectus may help you in your decision. If you would like to visit the school please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
