The job itself

Riverside School is an over-subscribed community day special school, which caters for children aged 2 – 19 years. In 2020, the school was transformed by a large-scale refurbishment and extension project. Our expanded capacity now includes a designated EYFS provision and Sixth Form department, in line with the East Riding’s Common Offer for special schools. The school’s designation has also changed to accommodate individuals with SLD and complex needs, though many of our older students present as MLD. In addition to this building work, the school has developed a range of outdoor facilities to enhance pupils learning further, including animal care, horticulture and STEM activities. We now have a fabulous site on which we meet the needs of our children. We aim to keep pupils engaged whilst striving to develop their basic skills (Literacy and Numeracy) as well as social and life skills.

You would be joining a happy and successful school. More information about our school vision is available on the school website. Please contact us to discuss the possibility of a visit as we’d love to show you around our fabulous school.
