Welcome to Riverside Primary School

Riverside Primary School provides a safe and friendly environment for our pupils to realise their full potential.

We offer an engaging, vibrant curriculum with opportunities for our pupils to gain the skills and attitudes that will help them become successful in the future.

We aim to develop self-directed, responsible young people with a quest for learning. Our ‘5Rs – Respect, Responsibility, Resourcefulness, Resilience and Reflection’ – permeate all aspects of our school. We want our children to enjoy learning and be confident as they grow.

Our staff work hard to create a culture that will help develop lively enquiring minds and the ability to work with a sense of purpose; we want them to believe and achieve.

We hope that you will find our website a valuable resource and that it will give you an insight into our school. We welcome visits to our school so that you can get a feel for us, and know it is a place where children can grow, be happy in their learning and experience success.
