About Riverside School

We provide 140 student places, (148 from September, 2021), in school years 7-14 across 5 teams for students with a wide range of general, moderate, complex, severe and profound and multiple learning difficulties. From year to year approximately two-thirds of the school’s population have a diagnosis of autism.

Each team consists of 3-5 classes, organised according to common levels of independence, communication styles and level of learning needs, divided by key stage rather than year group:

Team 1: MLD (11-16, KS3/4) Progress 8+, formal curriculum
Team 2: SLD (11-16, KS3/4) Progress 8+/8, adapted curriculum
Team 3: SLD (11-16, KS3/4) Sensory Progress 8
Team 4: PMLD (11-19, KS3/4/5) Developmental 8
Team 5: MLD/SLD (16-19, KS5) Specialised multi-dimensional curriculum

Classteachers deliver English, maths, science, PSHEE, (and accredited courses in KS4). Specialist teachers deliver art, music, PE, and food technology, (also computing with the Progress 8+ classes).
