This short video, made by year 6, explains the Catholic Values that underpin everything we do here at St Richards Catholic Primary School


Welcome to St Richard's Catholic Primary School

This website has been designed to give you information about the everyday life and work of our pupils and staff. I hope that you will find it both interesting and useful.

St Richard’s is a Catholic school which serves our local parish of St Richard’s of Chichester, together with the parishes of St Wilfrid’s in Selsey and St. Peter’s in the Witterings. We aim to have close contact with these parishes and involve them in the life of our school.


This year, 2020-2021, we have 312 children on roll. The children are split into 11 classes, all of which are mixed age-group classes (apart from Reception).

We believe that we can only be truly successful if Governors, Parents and Staff work cooperatively, in a spirit of mutual trust and understanding. For my part, as Headteacher, I will endeavour to strengthen this partnership, in order to ensure that your child learns and lives in a happy, stimulating, safe and caring educational environment, where he or she can grow and develop.


All staff hope that your children will feel safe, nurtured and valued during their time with us.

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. All staff, volunteers and extended school providers are required to be DBS checked. Mr James Field is the Designated Safeguarding Lead and Karen Courquin is the Deputy DSL alongside Penny Wojcik and Laura Coulter.

Please do not hesitate to come and talk to us about any aspect of your child’s development. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our community and hope that your years at St Richard’s will be happy ones for you and your family.

Mr James Field 
Head Teacher
