Message from Mrs Lahive

Welcome to Riverside Primary School!

This website will give you key information and a flavour of what it is like to learn and grow as a member of our school.

Our school motto, "Da Totem Habes" - "Give It All You've Got!" is intrinsic to our school life!

Our staff and our children have a passion for learning and the school takes pride in the very wide range of events, creative and practical lessons and challenging curriculum, we offer. Please check out the rest of our school website to see just how action-packed a typical week is at Riverside.

Our community of parents, governors, staff and children work together to enable each and every child to be the best they can be, both in their personal and academic development and to continually adapt and improve our wonderful school. Riverside runs a highly successful inclusion base for children who have been excluded or are close to exclusion from other schools.

We have many connections with local organisations and bodies and other schools, including our link school St Alphonsus in Trafford, which further enriches our learning.

The ongoing professional development of all our staff is a major strength of our school. We achieve this through mentoring, coaching programmes, in house training, external training and a love of teaching and learning.

We encourage our children to be actively involved in their learning, taking responsibility for their own success and happiness. This is made possible through our Whole School Meetings, School Council, peer mediation and buddy system. The children at Riverside are also keen to make a difference to the world beyond our school, through events such as our charity work in association with The Adelphi Hotel and our links with a school in Cambodia.

Don't take our word for it, why not come and visit us and see us in action!
