Riverside West Wickham

Welcome to the Primary Phase at Riverside West Wickham. We are a primary phase made up of 5 classes; Turtles, Seals, Otters, Dolphins and Manatees. What an amazing start we have had to our new academic year!

We realise the importance of having a truly personalised curriculum for each of our pupils and all of our staff members are fully committed and passionate about supporting our pupils to achieve and make progress whilst having the most fun and making meaningful memories along the way.

Learning is exciting and irresistible here at Riverside West Wickham and takes many forms including sessions such as Attention Autism, TEACCH, TACPAC, Learning Outside the Classroom, Learning Through Play, sharing Sensory Stories and much more whilst always ensuring our pupils strengths and needs are at the heart of all teaching and learning.

We strive to ensure all pupils are provided with a total communication approach. We quickly learn what works best for each child and work alongside families to implement communication strategies at home.

We are working hard to build partnerships within our local community and regularly support pupils to access the wider community via regular walks and visits. We visit local shops, parks and cafés and this is something we feel is key to building successful and sustainable life skills and further support our pupils’ independence.

We take time to learn what works best for each child, building partnerships with you, our pupils' families. We want to work together to support each child to Be All That They Can Be.
