Letter from our Head teacher

Hello and welcome to our school's website.

Riverside is a happy and hardworking school.

 Don’t forget - the clocks go back on Sunday 30th October. We have an Inset day on Monday 31st October. Pupils return on Tuesday 1st November.

We take pride in everything that we do and enjoy celebrating all our successes. Please take time to visit the different parts of the website where you will see how we support our pupils to develop and learn. During the spring term we held our arts week - look at our photos. Each class also looked at some different cultures so you will see some Japanese Tea Parties and the tasting of different foods.  More photos of our summer activities, including  the old Year 6’s residential trip to Fairthorne Manor, can be found in the School News section, where you will see the opening of our Step and Stretch playground.

This autumn we are welcoming lots of new pupils and I am looking forward to getting to know them and their families. Please do come in to Reception and talk to Karen, Carly or Maureen if you have any questions or worries.

You will notice some changes to our front door area - we hope this helps to make us more accessible for everyone.

 If you would like to know more about who we are and what we do, please do contact our school office to arrange a visit.
