It's nearly time for the new school year!

30th August 2023
We are very excited to welcome our children back to school for the brand new 2023/2024 school year next Tuesday 5th September!
Doors will open at 8:45am and all children need to be in their new classes for 9am. We are looking forward to seeing all of them looking super smart in their new uniforms and we are proud to have been able to provide every child a free uniform bundle this year. We also have free LRPS water bottles for every child in school - these will be handed out next week and labelled up with your child's name.
School opens at 8:45am every morning and children need to be in class by 9am. School finishes at 3:15pm every day for Nursery and 3:30pm for all other classes, Monday-Friday.
Riverside Wraparound will be open as normal from Tuesday (07:45 to the beginning of the day before school - home time until 18:00 after school). Please contact the office by emailing to make a booking.
There has been so much happening in our school over the summer! We're excited to show our children their newly refurbished 'Riverside Restaurant' next week. The finishing touches are being made to this space this week.
We also have our incredible new sensory room that has been installed over the summer alongside the fully refurbished 'Bridge'.
Our early years garden has been refreshed with a lick of paint on the outbuildings, installation of a new fence to separate our new play space from our new Forest Schools zone.
On the main playground we've also installed some new benches, included a specially commissioned friendship bench thanks to a donation from the family of a departing Year 6 pupil (this will be shared in a separate post soon!)
A reminder that we are now a 'cash-less' school so all dinner money payments must be made via the ParentPay app. If you need to get set up on this app, please speak to Nicole or Jill in the office who will be happy to help. Later this term we will also be introducing a contactless/chip & pin pay facility in the office.
We have got many exciting plans for the 2023/2024 school year and can't wait to get started! See you all next week!
