Rise Park Junior School

Our vision and values permeate through the whole curriculum and can only be achieved through the children, staff, parents and governors demonstrating our core values of “Respect, Belief, Excellence”. 

At Rise Park Junior School we:  

Value every member of our community  

Enhance and celebrate our similarities and differences  

Recognise our lifelong ability to learn and grow  

Rise to all inspiring opportunities

I have been a headteacher for 12 years, having been appointed to the Infant School in 2010 and subsequently becoming the Executive Headteacher of Rise Park Academy Trust in 2014 when our two academies were opened, from which time they have gone from strength to strength, achieving two Ofsted ‘Good’ judgements in May 2017.

Our popular and successful early years centre for Reception children was opened in 2013, followed by a Year 5/6 junior school block in 2015 and a dedicated nursery provision in 2017. Our most recent projects have been the construction of a large Multi-Use Games Area, an all-weather sports pitch for both schools, which has now been completed, as well as a sensory pod area and surrounding garden for SEND and disadvantaged

pupils in our schools, which is currently being developed. The schools also have a purpose-built heated outdoor swimming pool as an additional facility which enables us to offer swimming lessons to all of our pupils as a key life skill.


​The Local Committee, Senior Leadership Team, staff and pupils are very proud of our broad and varied provision, which is strongly supported by an active and successful PTFA, as well as a very close school community. 

Our curriculum vision is based upon our seven “Learning Powers” of Respect, Inspiration, Self-Belief, Excellence, Passion, Achievement, Resilience and Knowledge, which also encompasses our three key values of “Respect, Belief, Excellence”.


This vision is lived and realised by all of our children and staff at all times, as part of our day-to-day school life.

Our academies joined the Success For All Educational Trust in September 2021, which also includes Redden Court School, Royal Liberty School and Sanders School, all of which are very popular secondary schools in Havering. This professional relationship between both primary and secondary phases has already produced many significant benefits, including effective transitions to the next stage of our pupils’ education, exciting teaching and learning opportunities, greater opportunities for staff career development and the advantage of being able to apply economies of scale when resourcing our schools as members of a larger multi academy trust.


We welcome all parents, visitors and other agencies to work with us in partnership, as we continue to enhance and improve our educational offer to all of the children in our care.


We look forward to meeting you and working with you all.

Message from the Head of School

As a former pupil of Rise Park Schools, my career aspiration has always been to give back to the community that made such a positive difference to my education, which fundamentally inspired me to become a teacher.

After completing a three year BA Honours Degree in Education in 2008, I went on to teach, firstly at a school in Loughton, and then at a school in Basildon. Alongside this, I carried out consultancy work for Essex County Council supporting schools that required improvement, as well as taking on the role of a Key Stage 2 writing moderator within the borough for a number of years.

Throughout my career, I have taken on a wide range of roles and responsibilities including the leadership of English, Assessment and PE as well as mentoring and inducting new teachers to the profession and have taught the whole range of Key Stage 2 year groups.

I was fortunate to join the team at Rise Park Junior School in 2013, taking on my first role as a Deputy Headteacher, and then subsequently being promoted to Head of School in 2017. During this time, I further widened my skills and professional development in 2015, where I completed a First Class Masters Degree in Education. 

It has been a privilege to be a part of the Rise Park community, and I am so proud of the journey the school has made since the time I started. The children are a true asset to the school and our dedicated and hardworking team of staff are a pleasure to work with.
