Riverside is quite a large school and is always very busy. We have over 300 pupils here who all achieve very high standards – we are consistently one of the top 5% of schools nationally and we are very proud of all our pupils.
Children at Riverside have the opportunity to participate in many extra-curricular activities – we have lots of different after school clubs, such as fitness club which is very hard work.
We also have many visiting specialists who come to school to teach us music, dance and drama. We work closely with the Young Voices project and the annual Shakespeare Festival – many of our pupils have performed there and you can hear our choirs sing in some very strange places!
People who visit our school say the children are well behaved and polite which we always like to hear. Come and see for yourself…
We work very hard and have very high expectations of all our pupils – we help them achieve their very best and take pride in all they do.
We use local resources a lot – we know all about our environment and what we can do to help. And as our name tells you we are very close to the River Thames.
You will like working in our ICT room – there are lots of computers and programs for you to use. You will also have a laptop that is yours to use at school and at home. Your work may be on this website soon!
I am always in and out of classrooms and taking a peek at what everyone is learning. It is very rare for someone to look in my office for me… you never know where I might be!
While you are here you will get to do lots of fun things but you will be learning at the same time. Reading and Writing is very important so I make sure there are lots of interesting resources and opportunities for you to develop your literacy skills.
We like making new friends and hope you will be one of them very soon. I was a Riverside pupil and so I know just how it feels!
Hello! My name is Sophie Alder and I am the Senior Assistant Headteacher of Riverside School.
I am the person who monitors attendance and punctuality. It is very important that everyone comes to school every day and on time – that’s the best way to learn and you don’t miss out on all the exciting things we do.
One of my most important jobs is to make sure we have successful sports teams! So we regularly work with coaches to improve our sports’ skills, including those from Millwall Football Club.
I work closely with the Assistant Headteachers so we know that Riverside is a safe and happy place to learn. I look forward to meeting you…
