School Description

Riverside makes a real difference to pupils’ lives. There is a special feel to the school due to the positive ethos and commitment of staff, led by the inspirational headteacher. Many pupils join the school having previously experienced difficulty and disruption to their education. At Riverside, pupils get the chance to turn their lives around. Everyone exemplifies and reinforces the school’s values of ‘honesty, integrity and respect’. Pupils’ comments accurately sum up their experiences of school: ‘We’re 100% safe here; they [the staff] really care about us and they’ll drop everything to help us.’ Students in the sixth form are well supported. Pupils’ behaviour improves over time because there are clear expectations that are understood and followed by everyone. Leaders address bullying concerns quickly, and pupils agree that there is little bullying. Leaders help pupils to reflect on bullying and behaviour incidents in a safe and supportive way. Staff have put much thought and careful planning into creating a broad, personalised curriculum with a good balance of academic and vocational qualifications, including GCSEs. Pupils and post-16 students see the value of what they are learning about. It helps them to achieve well, become independent and gain valuable skills for employment.
