Riseley C of E Primary School

Our Church School

Status and Character of the School

Riseley is a Church of England School, part of the Diocese of St. Albans but remains part of the maintained system of education and is operated in partnership with the Local Authority. The aim of a Church school is to provide the best possible education for each child within the context of a Christian community. All Church of England dioceses and the Methodist Church use the Church of England Education Office's framework for the Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools (SIAMS) under Section 48 of the Education Act 2005. 

Our school provides education for pupils of both sexes and all abilities aged 4 to 11.

The school stands on the site previously occupied by Margaret Beaufort Middle School. The school building was completed in 2 phases with the final phase completed in January 2020. The school is fortunate to have access to a multi-use games area (MUGA), large school field and a wooded area for Forest School.

We are always pleased to receive visitors. If you are interested in a place for your child, please contact the School Office, and we will be delighted to organise a tour and answer any questions you may have.
