Welcome to Richmond Methodist Primary School

Welcome to our school website aimed at providing you with the necessary information about our school.

We are a large and friendly Methodist School in the market town of Richmond, North Yorkshire.

We believe that every child is special and that all children can succeed given the opportunity. Our staff are therefore committed to ensuring our pupils receive quality teaching and the best care, guidance and support so that they may reach their full potential in all areas. Our standards are set high and our school was judged by Ofsted in February 2017 to be "good" overall.

We have a particular passion for sport and music. The opportunities that we offer our pupils reflect this, with pupils taking part in numerous sporting and music activities and competitions. In addition, our pupils have access to a wide range of after-school clubs aimed at broadening their experiences.

We also believe that education is a partnership between home and school and a close working relationship is vital to maximise the outcomes for our children. If you need to discuss any aspect of your child’s education then please contact their class teacher in the first instance.

We welcome interest from prospective parents and are happy for you to visit the school at any time.


Mrs Sharon Stevenson

Our ethos is of a deeply embedded inclusiveness and everything we do it underpinned by our Methodist School philosophy of ‘for all’.

Our values were chosen by children, staff and Governors as the ones most important to our school.
