  • Well, I can’t quite believe it’s that time of year again. Where does the time go? Life at Riverside has continued to be fast-paced and upbeat, so I guess that is one reason why it doesn’t seem two minutes ago that we were starting out in our new refurbished building.

    What a year it has been. The school has seen an almost total overhaul. By September 2017 two new classrooms will be in operation and over the summer work will continue to make the school an even better learning environment. There is still the ‘small’ issue of the wall and repair works to the roof – but more about that in September!

    As a school we are also growing. As we bid farewell to our Year 6’s and wish them all the luck for the future, we welcome lots of new faces (not only in Year 3 but throughout the school). Again it is the time of year when some of our staff also move on to pastures new. Namely, Mrs Waldren whom has been at the school for over 10yrs, she will be sorely missed by children and staff alike and Mrs Chadwick who has done an excellent job in Year 5/6. We do welcome some new faces, Miss Christou and Miss Hoyle join our teaching staff and Mrs Doty will be working with Year 6. Also, we welcome back Miss Stansfield into Year 3 who will be taking on a mentor role in the afternoons.

    There have been far too many highlights of this year to mention, I am not even going to try! But I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the children, staff and parents/carers who have fully supported the school and make Riverside the amazing place it is.

    I hope everyone has an amazing summer – I won’t mention the weather with my luck, but enjoy whatever you have planned.
