Welcome to the Jo Richardson Community School website. JRCS, which opened in 2002, was the first new secondary school to be established in Barking and Dagenham for over 40 years.
Our motto “Success for All” underpins everything that we do at the school and puts the students’ achievements at the centre of our vision. We have a commitment to the highest academic standards combined with a wide range of curricular and extra-curricular activities aimed at enhancing the opportunities offered to all our students.

Update for Parents February 1st 2021
Following updated government guidance, the school will only be open for vulnerable students and the students of critical workers from 5th January. Please continue to check the school website for updates. As soon as we are made aware of any plans to reopen, we will update parents.
Remote Learning We will be providing remote education for all students not attending school on Microsoft teams. Please click here to view the full Remote Learning Information page.
If you have trouble accessing remote learning or do not have a device, laptop or internet access then please click the link to request support: Remote learning support and we will be in contact. Please click the link for a help guide on how to access Microsoft teams and remote learning.
Year 11 and 13 exams and final assessment grades We recognise that this is an anxious time for all our year 11 and 13 students. Once we have received further guidance from the government, we will write to all year 11 and 13 students and their parents with information about how students’ grades will be calculated. There are likely to be some form of external tests to supplement teacher assessment grades. It is important that students continue to complete all work set.
If you need a place at the support school, please email your head of year. Please only request this if it is absolutely necessary as spaces are very limited. If you test positive, then please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and follow government guidance on self-isolation.
Help and Support We recognise that this is a difficult time for many of us. As a community we are here to support each other. Please keep in touch if you need anything. The school office is open from 8.15am to 3.45pm or email any questions or concerns to Headteacher@jorichardson.org.uk. You can also email our support line at email@example.com.
