Are you ready to play your part in transforming the lives of children with complex needs and the lives of their families? Do you have the passion, resilience and dedication to enable our pupils to find true fulfilment? If so, we’d love to hear from you. Riverside is a highly-regarded school for children with severe and complex learning difficulties, many of whom are on the autistic spectrum. We welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds and experiences, including Early Years and we have a strong track record of supporting NQTs and teachers new to special education.
We are a forward-thinking and innovative all-age special school with a diverse population: our 250 pupils are based on two sites, St Paul’s Cray and Beckenham, in the London Borough of Bromley. Pupil, family and staff engagement is extremely important to us and we strive to involve the whole school community in making Riverside a happy, safe and truly exceptional place for our pupils to learn. Our talented, multi-disciplinary staff team have the highest expectations of our pupils and we aim to provide the kind of specialist education which families want for their children.
Our core values are at the heart of everything we do:
Aspiration Resilience Creativity Humility Integrity Trust Enthusiasm Courage Teamwork
They make up the acronym ARCHITECT to signify our passion for designing and building a school that will make an indelible mark on the world for generations to come; a school that will impact positively on everyone who enters, on people we may never meet, and in ways we may never know.
We see our pupils’ time at Riverside School as just the first part of their journey and we want them to leave us at the age of 19 as confident, lifelong learners. We also want them to remember their time with us with great affection, with memories of life-enriching experiences and enduring relationships.
The best way to learn more about our work is to arrange a visit, alternatively, please telephone Steve Solomons, Headteacher for an informal discussion about this post on 01689 870519.
Once you get a sense of The Riverside Way, we are confident you will want to become a part of it. We look forward to hearing from you. Riverside School is committed to providing equality of opportunity and to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff to share this commitment. All appointments will be subject to receiving satisfactory references; clearance of a full DBS check and satisfactory health clearance.
