Welcome to Richmond Methodist Primary School

Our website has been designed to give you information about our school; how we are organised, the education we provide and, above all, our aims, objectives and values.

We believe that every child is special and that all children can succeed when given the opportunity. We believe in an enjoyable, rich and varied curriculum and encourage children to take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities.

We also believe that education is a partnership between school and home and that a close working relationship is vital. If you want to discuss anything to do with our school, please contact me. I always try to make time to see parents, current or prospective. The best way to get in touch with me is via e-mail or you can telephone the office. See the “Contact Us” section of the website.

Like most websites, ours is in a constant state of development as we refine and add sections. If you have any suggestions for us, do let us know.

Kind regards,

Miss Ring
Head Teacher


Values and Ethos

Every school has a unique identity and here at Richmond Methodist everything we do is underpinned by our school ethos of 'for all'. 

We have identified the following values by which the children, the staff and the governors would like to live by.


Arkengarthdale Primary School

Separated by 15 miles and 25 minutes by car, our two schools work closely together. The schools share the same leadership team and have the same commitment to high quality education, whilst retaining distinctive characteristics and separate governing bodies.
Both schools ensure that pupils achieve standards significantly above the local and national average. Both schools are committed to ensuring that each child feels happy and secure and that high quality relationships are at the centre of the lives of the school.
Both schools are generously staffed and benefit from highly motivated, well-trained and totally committed adults.   

To find out more about Arkengarthdale C of E Primary School and what it might be able to offer your child, visit the school’s website HERE or contact the headteacher HERE.

Swaledale Alliance

We are proud to be a lead school in the Swaledale Alliance.

The Alliance was established in September 2012 and in March 2013 received Teaching School status as a cohort 3 teaching school. This collaboration of 58 primary schools, 1 special school and 1 secondary school, works together to improve outcomes for all its young people.
