Visions and Values

 Vision and Aims


Welcome to Ryhope Junior School, where our vision for the education of our children is encapsulated in our motto: Learn to Live.

 At Ryhope Junior School, we aim to provide outstanding primary education in a vibrant and stimulating environment. The school is committed to developing a love of learning inspired by quality teaching, building and developing upon individual strengths and talents. We believe every child is entitled to enjoy his or her childhood. We teach the importance of moral values and provide the foundation for life long friendships.


 In partnership with parents we aim to nurture young people to be caring, committed and confident. The school works in close partnership with the community to develop citizens who will lead happy and rewarding lives.

 We aim to do this by:

  • Providing a happy, positive and secure learning and social environment in which all members of the school community feel valued;
  • Meeting every child’s needs, by understanding the individual and diverse ways in which children learn and develop;
  • Giving every child access to a rich, exciting and relevant curriculum, taking into account the child’s learning styles and interests;
  • Encouraging active partnership with parents and carers;
  • Extending our knowledge and understanding in order to support children’s learning, through a programme of on-going professional training and development.
