Riverside Primary School

Information about the school

Riverside Primary School was built in 1926 as a secondary school with a primary department. In 1972 the secondary pupils transferred to a new purpose built school in Causewayhead. With closure of the Territorial School and Craigs School, the primary department expanded and it is housed now within the two buildings on the campus in Forrest Road.

Riverside school provides facilities for children with Autism. Support can be provided within the classroom or in a teaching base, depending on the individual needs of the children.    

Gaelic education in schools

Gaelic Medium Primary Education is available to anyone who wishes their child to be taught through the medium of Gaelic. This is open to all children whether they can already speak Gaelic or not.

There is Gaelic Medium provision at Riverside Primary School, where children are taught solely through the medium of Gaelic. From primary 1 to the end of primary 3, pupils learn Gaelic through total immersion.  English literacy is introduced at the end of primary 3 and from then onwards, literacy skills progression is in Gaelic and English. 

Gaelic Medium provision is continued at Wallace High School where young people have the opportunity to progress their learning from S1-S3 into the Senior Phase leading to the award of National Qualifications.

Please note: Parents interested in accessing Gaelic Medium Primary provision should contact the school for further information.

Catchment areas

Each school has its own geographic area called a catchment area. Normally, your child will attend your local catchment school. If you wish your child to attend a school other than the catchment school you are required to make a placing request.
