What the school says...

Riverside Primary Academy is a highly successful primary school where children achieve very well and personal aspirations are promoted. We recognise that children achieve best when they are having fun and feel happy. Therefore, our curriculum is developed to be exciting and stimulating throughout the year; using school facilities and visits or visitors to ensure our learning is engaging. We provide two afternoons of sport and outdoor learning every week to promote fitness and collaboration. Manners and politeness are also important in our academy.

Leadership, governance and teaching in our school are all outstanding (see our Ofsted report). All staff work hard to ensure that every child maximises their potential and children reach high levels of attainment. Visitors to our school often comment upon the calm atmosphere, the outstanding behaviour and the caring ethos we have in our school. This is an achievement we are all very proud of.
