Welcome to Richardson Endowed Primary School


Basketball practice with our Embark friends at Kilburn!

It was a privilege to watch children from both Embark schools practice their Basketball skills earlier in the week.

Thank you Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for making this happen and to all parents for helping with transport.

Handball practice for Embark Federation!

I was lucky to watch a fantastic Handball session after school which was our first inter-school session for children at Smalley and Kilburn. 

This was a great chance to link together as two schools and practice before the competition in a couple of weeks time. This will hopefully give the children a slight advantage over the other schools attending but more importantly have fun and make friends with others from the Embark Family.

A huge thank you to Mr Whiteman and Mrs Shaw for organising this and we are looking forward to the next inter school sports session in December. 

Well done children and good luck in the competition. 


Grubby Club - week four finale!

Smalley's Summer Show 2017

Well done children, what a super show.

Thank you for all of your hard work and effort.



Tag Rugby 2016!

It was a privilege to attend tonight's Tag Rugby competition and watch the skill, determination and teamwork of our year 5 and 6 pupils. They played really well, scored some wonderful team tries and came third in their group.

A huge thank you to Mrs Shaw as always for organising the team and to our parents and grandparents who braved the cold to support the team!

Well done to all, I hope Wales show as much skill this Saturday!

Kicking off this term in style !

IMG_0763Kicking off this sporting year in style, our Smalley boys Y5/6 football team attended our Amber Valley cluster football event at Eyes Meadow in Duffield last week . 

Finishing  second overall in our group , we went on to play in a nail biting game, , which went to extra time and penalties, the boys valiantly gave their all but lost out on a golden goal shoot out.  

Finishing 7th overall out of 12 teams,  the boys linked some great play together, and as always showed excellent sportsmanship throughout. 

A big thank you to our sports coach Mr Wildig , for pre - tournament training and his constant support,  and to Mr Strode for his support on the day. 

Apologies for the delay in this post, as we wanted to show everyone our new football strip , supplied  to us by Mr Riggott. Think you will agree , the boys look impressed. 

Go Ride - Team Smalley!

Some of our pupils competed last week in a Go Ride competition for pupils across Amber Valley.

They rode brilliantly and represented our school really well.



We're happy when we're singing!

On Friday 17th June Mrs Mason took a group of children from the Performance Club to sing at Smalley Hall Care Home she was accompanied by Miss Williams and Mrs Evans. They sang a selection of Disney songs and a medley of wartime favourites. The residents thoroughly enjoyed listening to the children sing and also joined in with a few!It was a wonderful afternoon and we left the residents with a smile on their face. Thank you for having us. Image

SATs breakfast!

After our early morning yoga sessions the Year 6 children enjoyed a lovely breakfast each day.

Toast tastes better at school apparently!

For our final day this morning the children enjoyed bacon baps which went down a treat!

A huge thank you to Mrs Drury, Mrs Boole, Mrs Shelton, Mrs Annabel and all other staff who helped this week. It was very much appreciated and the food was lovely.

Thank you also to our staff who swapped and covered gate duties and gave our children such support this week. It was a real team effort and I'm so proud.

Enjoy the pictures!
