Riverside Community Special School

14th December 2017

Dear Parents and Carers

On Thursday our pupils will be enjoying their Christmas lunch followed by a visit to Father Christmas, where they will receive a gift. This year, Wave 105 Cash for Kids has generously helped Father Christmas by providing him with the gifts for his sleigh! Each child has personally chosen gifts that we trust will be enjoyed at home.

Wave 105 Cash for Kids also donated a large sum of money to the school so that we could buy lights and safety equipment for our Sensory Light Walk in November.

Please take a look at the Wave 105 website for more information or to send them a thank you message:


Yours sincerely

Catherine Le Roux      

Head teacher

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.

This year we are raising money for Canine Partners, who came in to show us their amazing dogs. Please look at our photos in School News

Watch out for pictures of our new Riverside pets!

 If you would like to know more about who we are and what we do, please do contact our school office to arrange a visit.
