Welcome to St Richard's Catholic Primary School


A welcome from our Executive Headteacher:

Welcome to St Richard’s Catholic Primary School in the historic city of Chichester. Our school serves a beautiful part of south-west Sussex stretching from the South Downs to the sea and from the Hampshire border to Selsey. We have strong links with the Chichester Catholic Parish - Our Lady and the Saints of Sussex - as well as deepening links with fellow Catholic schools in Bognor Regis and Arundel.

At the heart of our school is our Mission Statement and our purpose is to help the children to know and love Jesus and to love and serve each other. We are blessed to have compassionate and caring staff who strive to understand the needs and talents of each child to enable them to achieve their God-given potential.

I have the privilege of being Executive Headteacher at St Richard’s and I work closely with Mrs Coulter, the Head of School. We work in partnership with parents to develop a love of learning in the children and a sense of awe and wonder at God’s creation. We have an exciting curriculum which emphasises creativity and inclusion and our staff take every opportunity to engage the children in practical learning both inside and outside the classroom. We would be delighted to welcome you to our school so please explore our website to find out more and book a visit so you can see for yourself!


Mr Peter Edgington 



A welcome from our Head of School:

As Head of School, I look forward to welcoming you all to St Richard's. We are committed to providing the best experience for your children, ensuring they feel safe and valued. We have a Safeguarding team, led by myself and Mr Edgington as the Designated Safeguarding Leads, and Mrs Courquin and Mrs Bridges as Deputy Safeguarding Leads. 


We are a fully inclusive school, celebrating our diverse community, and we are very proud of the range of experiences on offer to the children through our broad and creative curriculum. We are also very lucky to have an active Friends committee, with parents organising events and surprises throughout the year, so there's plenty for everyone to get involved with! 


Please come and see us, as we are all so proud of our school and would be delighted to show you around!


Mrs Laura Coulter
