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.
