Riverside Federation

Staff – Collaboration and Professional Development 

Staff across both schools share expertise and professional development opportunities. These include coaching, INSET and resources to support learning. Staff plan together with outcomes reflecting the individual classes for which they are responsible.

This aspect of our Federation underpins every aspect of the life of both schools

The school is also in a Collaboration with Battle Outlying Schools (Memorandum of Understanding signed September 2018) - Netherfield, Ninfield, Catsfield and Crowhurst.  This is an evolving partnership with all staff working together for identified priorities.

Small group support

Through working together, we have been able to provide pupils with opportunities for focussed tuition in gender, ability and interest groups. The impact has been increased motivation of pupils and improved attainment.  


Pupils are enthusiastic, extremely hard working and very positive about their learning. When visiting classrooms, I saw pupils consistently well engaged, and sometimes deeply engrossed, during lessons. Throughout the day, I observed nothing but impeccable behaviour. Pupils told me that this day was just like any other.
