P1 Transition Hub
Please note this is for our August 2020 intake and will be updated shortly
Welcome to our P1 Transition Hub. You will find lots of useful information to help get you and your child ready for Primary One at Riverside Primary School. Usually we would share this information with you at our P1 Induction Evening. As we are unable to do so this year, please do take the time to read through the information. We are looking forward to welcoming all our new children and families to Riverside.

E-book for Primary 1 children
We look forward to welcoming your child to Primary 1. To help familiarise the children with school we have put together a video. Please share this with your child. We hope your child will enjoy watching the video and it will give you lots to talk about and encourage your child to feel confident and excited about their first days at school.

Some Advice from our current P1s
We are currently unable to take uniform orders through school.
Please click the link above to order directly from our supplier.
Our School Uniform
• Navy Blue Sweatshirt/Cardigan • White Polo Shirt • Grey/Black Skirt/Trousers (no jeans)
Sweatshirts/Cardigans/Polo shirts with our Riverside School Badge are available from our supplier.
A plain Navy Sweatshirt/Cardigan is also acceptable.
• Gym shoes • Gym top/T-shirt • Shorts and/or Tracksuit bottoms
You will be provided with a lunch menu once your child starts school. This can also be viewed via our school website, but is currently unavailable while schools are closed. Once the menu is available, please take a look with your child and discuss the choices available.
For general school to home communication we use a school App which parents/carers can download to their mobile devices. We find this a quick and easy way to keep parents up-to-date with school life. We have provided all our new families with the pin code to access the School App. To help keep our records up-to-date please complete the registration form and return to school with your child during their first week.
An information leaflet on food choices for your child.
Although all P1 pupils are entitled to free school meals some parents prefer to provide a packed lunch for their child. Click the link above for some healthy suggestions.
