Information about this school
Riverbridge Primary is a larger-than-average-sized primary school.
The school is housed on two sites which are within walking distance of each other. Riverbridge Primary joined the Lumen Learning Trust, a multi-academy trust (MAT), in September 2016. The school has a local governing body alongside a board of trustees.
The trust's executive principal and her deputy provide support to the school. The proportion of pupils with SEND is in line with the national average. The proportion of pupils from minority ethnic groups is above the national average and so is the proportion who speak English as an additional language.
The proportion of pupils supported by the pupil premium is below the national average. The school has a Nursery which has provision for two-year-olds. Children attend part time, either for the first half of the week or the second.
Some have access to 30 hours of Nursery provision. Over half of the Nursery children are admitted into the school. There is an on-site breakfast club which is run by school staff.
