River View Primary School opened in September 2011 for children aged 3 to 11. Our school has been designed to promote a positive learning environment for all. The use of new technologies and outdoor learning spaces are central to our vision for effective 21st Century teaching and learning. We are also committed to working in partnership with other groups to provide a range of services to suit the needs of our extended community. This website has been designed with the whole community in mind to provide information about our school, the community and the services we offer.


We understand that parents are worried following the tragic events in Manchester. We are in unsettling but fast changing times.  
We have also seen false rumours that all Salford schools have been closed on police advice. This is absolutely untrue – please see GMP website to get the latest, accurate information http://www.gmp.police.uk/
It’s crucial that we all try and remain calm, reassure our children and only seek or repeat information from official sources. Salford schools are open and ready to support children emotionally through chances to talk, the safety of predictable routines and spend time with their friends and teachers enjoying ordinary everyday activities.
Salford City Council works very closely with Greater Manchester Police, particularly at times like this to share any relevant safety information for the public.
GMP have stepped up patrols in our communities to provide reassurance.
Our schools have their normal security and safeguarding plans and procedures.
If anything changes the police will advise the public directly – and Salford City Council will share that information with schools and parents or carers.
Please be vigilant but our strength lies in returning to business as normal as soon as possible.


Improving links with school

We know that letters home are not always the most reliable way of sending you information and that is why we have decided to implement a text messaging and e-mail service.

This will enable you to receive all your information from school quickly and reliably. We can send letters by email to your inbox and short messages directly to your mobile phone as a text message. Just fill in the fields below and submit.
