Welcome to Riddings Junior School!

Riddings Junior School is a Local Education Authority (LEA) co-educational community school. The school originally dates from 1845, although at that time it was known as Riddings National School. It is still basically the same two-storey building today, although in 1905 the school was so seriously damaged by fire that only the outside basic shell remained standing. The building was repaired and the only major changes since that time have been the building of the kitchen extension in 1972, indoor toilets in 1980 and a link corridor across the front of the school in 1999. We are extremely fortunate in that the school grounds and gardens must rank as some of the most beautiful in Derbyshire. We have two small tarmac playgrounds, one of which is also used as a netball court. We have very extensive areas of grass. The top area is used for the football pitch while the very large lower area is used for athletics, cricket and rounders in the summer.

At the time of writing the school is composed of 207 children organised into eight classes. There are four classes in Lower School (two parallel Year 3 classes and two parallel Year 4 classes) and four classes in Upper School (two parallel Year 5 classes and two parallel Year 6 classes).

In addition to the classrooms we have a computer suite and a central reference library.

The hall is used for PE, Drama and Movement, assemblies and for school meals and sandwiches at lunchtime.


The Department for Education and Skills (DfES) introduced a revised National Curriculum in September 2000. All of our staff worked extremely hard to update school’s curriculum documents in light of these revised requirements. As a result we have been teaching to these new requirements since September 2000.

We constantly review the curriculum we teach to our pupils to ensure that they receive a broad and balanced educational experience.

I enclose, for your information, details of our programmes of study. If you should require further information then please do not hesitate to contact school.

We publish a termly curriculum news booklet, which gives more detail regarding the activities, skills and experiences your child will be undertaking. We hope that this greater level of detail will enable you to support your child’s learning."
