Starting School - September 2021
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.
