Rivermead Primary School offers a caring, warm and stimulating environment which enables your child to be supported, grow and thrive. We all want the best for the children, with a school focus on the learning and development of all learners. Together we strive to ensure all learners can ‘dream, believe & achieve’.
The pupils, staff, governors and parents are all extremely proud of Rivermead, which has been at the heart of the Woodley community for 80 years. The school is situated on beautiful grounds and offers a spacious building that holds a happy and inspiring environment. I feel extremely privileged to be the Headteacher of Rivermead and be part of the learning journey of each child.
I believe every child is different, yet equally important and valued. It is our role to provide each child with a range of opportunities and to find the ‘magic’ key that will unlock their full potential, whether it is
academic, the arts or sport. We need to allow the children to take risks within a safe environment,
receiving the encouragement and support they need to take each new learning step in their Rivermead
Our school offers a caring, warm and stimulating environment which enables your child to be supported,
grow and thrive. With the arrival of the new National Curriculum, it has allowed us to create a ‘Rivermead Curriculum’, a knowledge-based curriculum, using an inquiry approach, which we believe is enriching, engaging and interesting enabling the children to master skills, express their individual talents and develop a love of learning. We want your child to be happy and confident, equipped with the attributes, skills and knowledge that will endure beyond their time at Rivermead.
I am very fortunate to have a dedicated, dynamic and enthusiastic teaching and support team. All the staff want the best for the children, with a focus on the learning and development of all learners. Together we strive to ensure all learners – children and adults – can dream, believe and achieve.
I hope you find our prospectus useful and informative. Please take the opportunity to tour Rivermead, and I would be delighted to meet with you to discuss and share our school.
