Prospective Families 

Dear Parent /Carer,

Thank you for taking the time to look at what Long Ridings Primary School has to offer your child as they approach their first year in school. 

We would love to have been able to show you around the school in person but, as always, safety is our first priority.  Instead, we have a short video for you to watch that gives you an idea of what Foundation stage, KS1 and KS2 are like.  Although your child will be joining Foundation stage, we hope that they will grow and learn with us over a total of seven years and include some whole school images because of that. 

At Long Ridings Primary School we strive to maximise children’s academic attainment and progress but also develop the whole child too.  We have a team of dedicated and hard-working staff who create a learning environment where firsthand investigative approaches take centre stage.  We follow a series of themes throughout the school so National Curriculum subjects are taught in a way that makes the learning both relevant and gives it a meaningful context too. 

As children move through the school, we have many musical and sporting opportunities.  These include clubs run by staff and outside providers.  We like to make use of our extensive and impressive grounds and have a number of environmental initiatives we are working on.  This includes a recycling scheme and bee keeping in year 6.  We aim to help the children become aware of the importance of caring for and working with our natural world. 

If you have further questions for us, please call the school office and a member of the Senior Leadership Team will call you back. 

Best Regards,

The staff at Long Ridings Primary School.




My name is Gill Marrion and I will be working with you and your children as interim headteacher of Long Ridings Primary School during the coming months. 

I am an experienced primary headteacher and please be assured that whilst at Long Ridings I will endeavor to do my very best for our children, staff and the whole school community. 

I am looking forward to working with you and to meeting you all during the coming weeks.


Please keep safe and stay alert,


Gill Marrion
