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.

On Friday 10th November Mr Clyde organised for ‘The Amazing Journey’ Baptist Youth Group to come to school to allow us to take a journey through the Bible. Aaron Riddle presented both the Old and New Testaments and the pupils got to meet some bible characters along the way. At the end of the journey pupils got to dress up in traditional Bible clothes and taste some Bible foods from the time. 

Healthy Kids Sport Club 

On Thursday 23rd November, the very-popular ‘Sports Club’ afterschool club will begin for its first time in Richmount Primary School. The Healthy Kidz Sports Club will operate on Thursdays for boys and girls in P1, 2, 3 and 4 from 2.00 – 2.40 pm, and from 2.40 - 4pm for boys and girls in P5 to P7. 
 
Appealing to both boys and girls, those attending the club will experience a range of sports during the programme, as well as developing their physical and emotional literacy at the same time. From soccer to athletics, dodgeball to basketball, and rugby to American football, there will be a different emphasis every week. With sessions taking place both inside and outside, all in attendance are asked to dress accordingly (in the event of being outside bring warm clothing, footwear for tarmac and grass). 
 
Primary 1, 2, 3 & 4 – 2-2.40pm and Primary 5-7 - 3-4pm 
 
Thursday 7th December 
Thursday 14th December 
 
Each session will cost £2.00 and this is to be paid up front to ensure a place; sessions will run for 4 weeks. In order to book your child’s place, please return the consent slip attached, along with £8, to your child’s teacher ASAP (any cheques to be made payable to Healthy Kidz). Places are limited and in the event of over-subscription, names will be pulled from a hat. 
 
 

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.
