Riverside is a successful, oversubscribed 140-place Haringey maintained secondary special school.
The school is located on the same site as Woodside High School which enables a range of inclusive activities to take place between the schools.
The school provides:
- 128 Main School places for students (aged 11-16 in Teams 1-3, and 11-19 in Team 4) from across Haringey with a wide range of general, complex, severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties – including those with a wide range of language and communication needs.
- 12 Learning Centre places (Team 5) for students aged 16-19 experiencing significant barriers to their learning, be they medical, emotional or social
Challenge partners quality audit review 2019
Estimated Ofsted Grade: OUTSTANDING.
‘cross all the teams teaching and learning is characterised by very positive relationships between students and staff, leading to many outstanding lessons and robust progress in all.
The monitoring of teaching and learning is rigorous and the shift from observing learning rather than teaching during lesson observations and learning walks has reinforced the high expectations that all staff have on the progress that students are able to achieve.
Behaviour for learning is outstanding, with high levels of engagement from students, and skilled management of students.
