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.
Its great to be back at school when the weather is lovely. We are enjoying learning outside - our guinea-pigs are also really happy to be out on the grass.
Please check your class newsletter for information on learning, PE and any staff changes.
Our new sensory room is nearly ready - watch out for photos!

Well done to our Year 6 pupils who stayed over at Fairthorne Manor in May.
We are busy preparing for our Personal Safety Week (4th-7th June) - more information to follow on your weekly learning plan.
Very sadly, Ken Bowen, who was our Chair of Governors for 13 years died at the end of February after a period of illness. We are so grateful for his wise and skillful support of the school. Ken joined us for a celebration assembly in December and then planted a tree with our Year 6 pupils - he will be sadly missed.
