River Beach

Starting School - September 2020

Starting school is a big change in family life. It is an important milestone for both you and your child. Here at River Beach Primary School we believe that this should be an exciting time filled with opportunity and discovery. It can be a daunting time too. But we believe that by working together and with preparation and encouragement, most children will settle in easily at school, ready to learn, discover and have fun.

Starting School in September 2020

We will update this page with new information regularly and hope you find it useful as part of the transition process. We know starting school is a big step for children and grown ups! We hope to provide as much information as we can between now and September to help your child settle in quickly and confidently.

Below you will find our welcome video for new starters. It gives you lots of useful and practical information that will make a smooth start to your child's time a River Beach.


Below is a short tour around the reception learning areas to enable the children to become familiar with the environment and hopefully alleviate any worries.
