Welcome from our Head teacher

Hello and welcome to our school's website. Riverside is a happy and hardworking school. We are so pleased to be graded as OUTSTANDING by Ofsted in October 2016 - this is a true reflection of the enthusiastic hard work and dedication of my staff. Please take time to read our report which is in the School Information section.  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.
