Ryhall CE Academy have had a productive start to the school year and it has begun with a full intake in the new Reception Class, totalling an astounding 199 children in the school now.
Since the start of the academic year, the school has been able to cautiously return to many of its usual practices and is enjoying having more engagement with parents again. They’ve also been able to enjoy our wonderful village with Year 2 children recently taking a walk in to Belmesthorpe to visit the llamas and alpacas at Ridgeview Farm – an experience enjoyed by all. Hopefully, we’ll be seeing much more of the children out and about over the next few months, possibly returning to their well-received litter picks around the village and surrounding areas. The churches are most definitely looking forward to their welcome return.
The school has recently received two very exciting pieces of news. The first is the nomination by the Rutland and Northamptonshire Music & Performing Arts Trust for the school to receive the prestigious Music Mark accolade in recognition of their commitment to a broad and balanced curriculum and the value placed on Music.
The second piece of news is that Ryhall CE Academy is the first Rutland school to receive the 2nd level (Bronze) Award for the Modeshift STARS accreditation – a recognition of their efforts to promote road safety alongside active and sustainable travel. Together with their Eco Schools status, they really are pushing forward on this very important agenda – watch this space for their future work in this area. The school continues to be keen to work with the local community and is keen from anyone who wants to consider joint projects with them.
