Riverside Community Primary School and Nursery

Our primary school, sitting on the banks of the River Tamar, is a large three form entry school of nearly 600 pupils.  We pride ourselves on supporting all our pupils to achieve their potential. 

The school has 15 class bases, a nursery unit, a drama studio, an ICT/library suite and a large multi use hall. Externally there is a large play area, a first rate football pitch and an exciting wildlife garden. The purpose built kitchen provides nutritional hot meals daily.

At Riverside we aim to work in partnership with parents to provide each child with the best possible education both academically and socially. Great care is taken to ensure that the talents and needs of each child are recognised and valued. Above all, our school is a place where mutual respect for all is encouraged.

Riverside aim to ensure that all children feel themselves to be valued and fulfilled members of the school community. All, from the least to the most able, make progress and are helped to reach their full potential. Every child is an individual who has the right to be provided with a supportive context in which the child can develop to the best of their ability, regardless of age, background, race or aptitude.

Riverside highly value the input that parents make to their child’s education and aim to work together to provide the best possible support for each child.
