Special Education Needs

Riverside is a day special school for children experiencing complex needs associated with learning difficulties, including children with Autistic Spectrum Disorders. The key aim of the school is to enable each child to achieve his/her maximum potential while raising their self-confidence, self-esteem and working towards greater levels of independence. There is an emphasis on promoting a positive environment in which children stay safe, work towards healthy lifestyles, enjoy as they learn, feel that their contribution is valued and the whole of their well being is important. The school works with children from Foundation Stage through to the end of Key Stage 2. An integral part of the work undertaken involves working very much in partnership with parents, but also with a number of outside agencies to inform, assess and support in the decision making process relating to the child’s future education and life beyond school. Riverside has developed a comprehensive outreach service and extended school role. Many local schools and support groups for both professionals and parents regularly receive training, resources, support and advice on many issues related to special educational needs. In addition to this, the school has a visitors’ programme which offers opportunities to work alongside the staff, to see how the specialist approaches, operating within the school are used. Nov 09.
