About Us

A Welcome from the Headteacher:

Wayne L. Harris, B.Ed.(Hons), NPQH.

I joined Long Ridings in September 2006 after five years of Headship in another Essex primary school.  I have worked in Essex schools since 1989.


If you are new to Long Ridings, or thinking of sending your child here, I hope this site gives a useful insight into our work and facilities. If you are a pupil or existing parent, I hope it proves to be a useful way of finding information, activities and links to enhance your partnership with the school.  Keep checking back as we post regular updates.

At Long Ridings Primary School we encourage and develop the whole child intellectually, physically, emotionally, morally and spiritually, to achieve his or her full potential within a forward-looking, stimulating and secure environment.

The school works in close partnership with parents to enable children to achieve success and to prepare them for the opportunities and experiences of adult life within a culturally diverse, ever changing, society.

As you can see from the picture below we are fortunate to have extensive, unoverlooked and secure grounds, which offer excellent facilities for sport, recreation and educational activities. 


Our mission statement can be summarised as:
L earn and Discover
R espect one another
P erform to your best, achieve
S uccess!

reflecting our four initials L R P S.
