Riverhead Infants` School

Our School

We are a large Infants' School which in 2002 moved into a brand new state of the art building on the outskirts of Riverhead Village.  We have 270 children on our roll aged from 4½ to 7 years old.

Our school has an exciting futuristic design.  The roof of our school has sedum on it - its colour is constantly changing throughout the year from green to pink and purple; click on the picture for a larger view.  Inside there is plenty of space for our nine classes, hall, ICT suite, library and offices.

The School is set in its own grounds.  At the back of the school, away from the noise of the A25, we have a large playing field, playground and environmental area.  Next to us are; a cricket ground, parkland and fields which sometimes have ponies grazing in them.

Please take time to explore our website which contains a lot more information about us.  We have a tour to show you of what our school looks like, work from our children, latest news and letters, a section covering frequently asked questions, school prospectus, information about our PTA and Governors and much more...
