Letter from our Head teacher

Hello and welcome to our school's website.

Riverside is a happy and hardworking school.

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. Our Year 5 & 6 pupils took part in an election on May 7th, learning to present a Manifesto and make a choice in the voting booth - helping us to understand how a democracy works! More photos of our activities, including  the old Year 6’s residential trip to Fairthorne Manor, can be found in the School News section.

We enjoy welcoming visitors to our school. In the spring term we held our Arts Week - we sang Opera, cooked, made TV programmes, found out about music in other cultures and started designing pages for the Hampshire Inter-Faith calendar.

We are currently covered in scaffolding as we under go the renovation of the roof! Our car park is being used by the builders so please park off site and follow the safe walking route to the office.

 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.
