It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to The Vineyard School. Nestled at the top of Richmond Hill and situated within stunning grounds and first class facilities, The Vineyard has been proudly educating locally in Richmond for over 160 years, finding its final home on our current school site here on Friars Stile Road.
An education at The Vineyard is holistic. We have built a bespoke knowledge-rich, skills-led curriculum which provides stretch and challenge for all. We inspire pupils to reach their full potential and actively make a positive difference to the lives of others. We expect our children to explore the extraordinary number of enriching opportunities on offer and reach for the highest standards in all that they do - in their character and behaviour for learning, as well as their academic outcomes. We are immensely proud of their achievements and in equal measure we celebrate their outstanding academic results, future school destinations, excellence in the performing arts, sporting endeavours and service to others. With hard work, effort and fortitude, there is a strong belief that there is no limit to what can be achieved.
At The Vineyard, we believe that the wellbeing of our pupils and staff is incredibly important. This term, Wellbeing and Mental Health Awareness Week will be taking place w/c Monday 3 February. Visit Place2Be for information on how you can support your child to understand and manage their feelings.
Our ASPIRE Vineyard Value for this half term is being 'Ambitious’.
When we are ambitious, we embrace and encourage inspiration and innovation.
In PSHE this half term, from Reception to Year 6, we will be thinking about our 'Dreams & Goals'.
Overcoming obstacles and considering our learning strengths will feature in our lessons.
We would like to remind our parents and carers that our classroom doors open at 8:45am. Children are welcomed by their class teachers who have an array of 'soft-start' tasks for them to dive into, including maths, grammar and mindfulness activities.
