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.

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.
