Dear parents and carers,
Riverside ski trip took place last week in Northern Italy, we are following the government guidance for people returning from Northern Italy who were NOT in a lockdown area. The ski trip was NOT located in a quarantined area. The advice therefore is:
If since 19 February you have returned from other areas in Northern Italy NOT in a lockdown zone, you do not need to undertake any special measures, but you should monitor yourself for symptoms.
If you are experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, even if symptoms are mild, you should stay indoors and avoid contact with other people and call NHS 111 immediately, informing them of your recent travel.
All students should attend school as normal. We will keep you updated with any further advice we receive.
Riverside School is a mixed 11-18 free school that opened in September 2013. We are fully subscribed in Years 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 and currently have 1200 students on roll, including our new sixth form. We will eventually grow to a full capacity of 2000 students.
Our success is a result of an absolute emphasis on learning, the brilliant parental support that we receive and our close-knit team of enthusiastic and incredibly talented staff. There is a real sense of passion and dynamism that students and staff bring to all that they do, making Riverside School a superb place to both learn and to work.
We serve our local community with the very highest standard of education to ensure ‘Excellence for All’. Riverside works in partnership with the Local Authority (London Borough of Barking and Dagenham) to meet the needs of a rapidly growing school population in the Thames View and Riverside areas in the southern part of the borough, on the north bank of the River Thames.
Mr A. Roberts
