Welcome to our school

Welcome to the Ryders Green Website. My name is Lucy Blackmore and I am the Head Teacher of this wonderful school. There are so many fabulous things I want to tell you about Ryders Green Primary so I hope that you will find this website both informative and useful. Through our website, we aim to give you the full flavour of all that we offer the children and families of Ryders Green.

In that time we make sure that they have lots of exciting learning opportunities to enable them make the most of their one chance at Primary School. After up to seven years at Ryders Green we guarantee that your child will be a confident, aspiring, respectful and enthusiastic learner and citizen. We offer a curriculum where your child can explore, develop and achieve. We sincerely hope that your child will leave with a strong sense of achievement, satisfaction and a life long love for learning.

It was Children In Need on Friday 13th November.

We celebrated the day and raised over £500! 

We wore our hero/champion costumes and took part in activities throughout the day. Some of the Pudsey activities included putting the penny on Pudsey and writing acrostic poems and raps. 


We baked, iced and sold cakes and biscuits to raise money for this wonderful charity. 

Year 5 in particular smelt amazing as the children were cooking and no fire alarms were set off!

In the afternoon KS2 had a Children In Need rap battle.
