Learning environment

Our school environment

River Mead School provides a welcoming learning environment, with a hall, library, and specialist teaching areas. All teaching spaces are equipped with interactive whiteboards and we have laptops to be used in classrooms.

The KSI and Early Years classes enjoy access to outdoor play areas all year round.

River Mead School offers a music studio and a kitchen. We are lucky to have a number of rooms which we use for a variety of teaching and learning opportunities including peripatetic music teaching.

Resource Base classes

River Mead School provides specialist Resource Base provision currently for up to thirty five pupils with complex learning needs. It is important for us to work in close partnership with parents and carers to develop individualised programmes of support to promote learning, confidence and independence skills for all of our pupils. The Beehive is currently based in three classes (Busy Bees, Honey bees and Bumble Bees) catering for pupils with a variety of needs and ages, the Resource Base is an integral part of River Mead and supports inclusion for all within the wider school community. Resource Base places are available to pupils with Education, Health Care Plans and are allocated by the Wiltshire Council at County Hall.
