Letter from our Head teacher

Hello and welcome to our school's website.

Riverside is a happy and hardworking school.

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. During the spring term we held our arts week - look at our photos. Each class also looked at some different cultures so you will see some Japanese Tea Parties and the tasting of different foods.  More photos of our activities, including  the old Year 6’s residential trip to Fairthorne Manor, can be found in the School News section.

We recently opened our new “Step and Stretch” Playground for Foundation and Key Stage 1. We love it! Many thanks to Andy and his team at Garden Karma for working through rain and shine to get the playground finished. Also a BIG thank you to our parents association PAFORS who have generously donated to this project. Please continue to support us with the SUMMER FAYRE on 18th June.

 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.
