Welcome to River Mead School

“On behalf of all the staff and children I welcome you to River Mead School; I am delighted to be leading the River Mead School family as Head of School.
 I strongly believe that the school environment should provide children with the best opportunities available to achieve the highest academic standards, whilst never forgetting every child has a unique personality, talents and interests.
 At River Mead School, we strive to ensure that the school is the centre of our community and through the support of an excellent staff team we develop children into lifelong learners whilst cultivating respectful relationships and having high expectations of behaviour.
 Please take time to look at the website and contact us should you have any questions.”

Open Days and Early Years Visits

If you are looking for a primary school place for your child from September 2021, or Nursery place for your two or three year old, join Mrs Karen Austin for a tour of the school, as she shares her vision for the school, and answers ask any questions you may have.

There are a number of different visiting options available:
1. A viewing of the Nursery and Reception class spaces on the evenings of 13th and 15th October between 4.30pm – 7pm. This will not feature a full school tour, but will give you the chance to see these lovely spaces in detail and meet with Mrs Karen Austin, Head of School
2. A full guided tour of the school on Saturday 17th October between 9am – 2pm. This will include meeting Mrs Karen Austin, and touring the whole school site

Please feel free to come along on a Saturday and an evening – you can book on to as many tours / visits as you like, to make sure you get a really good feel for our school and what we offer.

Please note that you will be required to wear a face covering at all tours / visits, for the duration of your time within the school building. Each 30 minute tour / Early Years visit is limited to four adults at a time due to protective measures. Unfortunately it is not possible to bring children due to Covid restrictions on gatherings. You will be asked to provide contact details for each person visiting in order to meet our Track and Trace obligations.
