Our pupils in our School Council chose and designed our giant words that they wanted to use to describe our school values- you will see them all around our lovely site!
I am delighted to welcome you all to Riverside in my role as Acting Headteacher ready for this summer term. I’m sure you will join me in wishing Mr Yapp well as he has now started in his permanent role as Chief Education Officer for the STARMAT and we will be arranging a special “Thank You “assembly – more details to follow over the next couple of weeks.
Polite reminders for your child’s return:
Although the Government guidance has successfully moved into Step 2 of the lockdown easing according to the roadmap nationally from April 12th, we would like to remind you that there have not been any significant changes to the Government’s operational guidelines for schools. These still must remain in place until further notice.
This means that, in order to maintain the safety of all our Riverside Community, please note:
- The arrangements for drop offs/collections and timings will remain the same for this half term.
- The wearing of face coverings by adults at all times is required when on site.
- Please leave the site promptly at drop off and collection times.
- All class bubble arrangements remain the same as well as the play place arrangements in the two sites.
These are subject to Government updates and subsequent roadmap reviews- we will keep you informed at all times of any changes or adjustments are required.
As the lighter days and the weather is improving, we have lots of exciting plans for this half term - your child’s teacher will be letting you know about these by the end of the week so you can join in and support your child.

Riverside School is an exciting and innovative place to be. Our pupils are highly enthusiastic, motivated learners who have high expectations and achieve a lot during their time with us.
On 1st May 2018 Riverside School became one of the founding schools in the newly formed STAR Multi-Academy Trust. To find out more, visit the MAT website HERE
Read our latest Ofsted report HERE.
We cater for children aged from 3+ to 11 years of age.
We aim to ensure that our pupils have the opportunity to develop physically, socially, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually, to the best of their capabilities.
During their time with us we hope to help each child to realise his/her maximum potential. For this to be successful, school and home must work together. We value and encourage parental involvement and look forward to working with our families.
Many useful school documents, including the school registration form, can be found under the link 'Paperwork' from the homepage.
