Our vision at Riverdale Primary School is to ensure all children enjoy physical education and sport. Through this we aim to improve health and well being, to promote active participation and a lifelong enjoyment of sport, to develop social skills and for each child to fulfill their potential.
We are part of a School Sport’s Partnership to develop sport excellence within our school. The Link below will take you to the School Sport’s Partnership website to give you more information on what this is and how it helps to support school.
