Parents often have questions regarding the day to day of the school. In order to support you with this, Riversdale staff have put together a short Parent Booklet with lots of useful pieces of information. You can download a copy here.
Each year, the parents/carers of children in Early Years are invited to attend a welcome meeting. This year's presentation can be viewed here.
Having access to lots of resources is fantastic, but remembering the log in details for each website or application can be very difficult. We recognise how this can be a barrier for parents/carers and children, we have therefore signed up to Wonde Single Sign-on. Children have one emoji based password and can use this to access a range of sites for daily skills practice or homework. To access this visit: https://edu.wonde.com/login/Riversdale
