Welcome to Riverside Primary School & Children's Centre
A message from our Headteacher, Miss Williams:
“I have been Headteacher since September 2013 and am proud to be part of the Riverside team. The children here feel that to be part of our school you need to be ‘happy, helpful and hard-working’ and I am pleased to say that is exactly what we are!
Our vision is to give our children the very best start in life so that they can aspire to fulfil their dreams. We take the time to really know our children and their families and do all we can to support them when and where needed. Our Children’s Centre provides early intervention and support for families through important partnership working and links with the community. We therefore pride ourselves on being able to provide a high quality 0-11 years education.
We are a unique school having 2 provisions for a small number of children with statements for mild autism and visual impairment. As a fully inclusive school, we take children from a range of abilities, disabilities, cultures and backgrounds. Our children thrive in a culture of mutual respect and understanding that we are all different yet all possess special qualities.
At Riverside we are passionate about giving children experiences which are exciting and memorable and we have high expectations of all - as one parent says ‘Teachers encourage my children to reach beyond their goals to exceed expectations’ (Parent of Sophie and Evie)
Welcome to Riverside Primary School and Children’s Centre.”

"This is a good school....
Behaviour is good, and a strong feature in all lessons is the calm atmosphere in which pupils work together.
Pupils do especially well in writing and the most able pupils attain higher standards in mathematices than nationally.
Attainment at the end of Year 6 has risen sharply.
Partnerships with parents and carers are strong."
