Our School’s Learning Environment

At Ryhope Junior School we work towards providing a lively, stimulating and exciting environment in which our children can learn effectively. We believe that inspiring excellence is reflected through the quality of our learning environment. We value the importance of displays, pictures, objects and teaching aids that appear in classrooms and throughout the school building.


We want to create an environment which:

  • Stimulates curiosity and appreciation of the world
  • Celebrates children’s learning and achievement
  • Is an effective learning and teaching tool
  • Reflects the rich and varied experiences of current learning
  • Creates an appreciation and awareness of aesthetics which adds to the quality of children and adults’ experiences at school
