Welcome to Riverside Primary School

‘Where everyone matters and every day counts’

We very much hope that you enjoy your visit to our website and finding out more about our school. This website aims to give you a ‘taster’ of the school, as well as providing regularly updated information for both parents and pupils.

Riverside Primary School, situated 500m from the River Crouch, opened in September 2010 when the Infant and Junior schools amalgamated. We are very proud to be an integral part of the village of Hullbridge, building and enjoying strong links with other schools, local businesses and members of our local community.

At Riverside Primary School, we believe that every child should learn the skills for lifelong learning and be supported to develop as good citizens who contribute fully to their community. We aim to create a happy school where the learning atmosphere is exciting and conducive to high attainment.
Staff, governors and children work together to harness each other’s strengths and expertise so that children are offered the best possible education.

We warmly welcome all visitors, so you can see for yourself how we learn together at Riverside Primary School. Please contact the school direct with any queries you may have or to arrange a time to visit. We will be delighted to share our school with you.
