General School Information
Riverview is a one-form entry church primary school with a 34 place mainstream nursery with links to our Ewell Family Centre. Our school welcomes children from three to eleven years.
The school was opened in April 1952 as an infant/junior school and in September 2002 became a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School. In November 2016 the school moved into a brand new building situated on the same site.
The school building comprises a large hall/gymnasium/dining area, eight classrooms, and areas for children to learn in small groups.
Our outside areas are vast and are used to enhance the curriculum. Outside there is a very large playing field, attractive gardens with a playground to the front and a playground to the rear of the building. Our pond is used to support our curriculum.
Exceptional Leave of Absence
There is no automatic entitlement in law to time off in school time to go on holiday. The school will only authorise leave of absence in term time in exceptional circumstances.
Where a parent wishes to request a leave of absence, a formal request must be made in writing, (form below), in advance, to the Headteacher who will consider the application on behalf of the Governors. Consideration will then be given to the student's previous school attendance and that the time requested does not exceed 10 school days in one academic year.
If a holiday is taken without prior authorisation by the school, it will be recorded as an unauthorised absence, the Inclusion Service will be notified and parents may be liable to a Penalty Notice.
