Rivacre Valley Primary School Vision

"Oh, the places we'll go....."  

Together, we create a safe and fun place to learn, explore  and grow.


Our School Day is from 8.50am until 3.15pm.



Letters have been sent home to inform parents that we are now a nut free school. Please can all parents and carers ensure that any items in your children's packed lunch or snacks contain no nuts or does not state 'may contain traces of nuts'. If children have any of these items they will be taken off the children. We would like to thank parents/carers for your support with this matter.

We are also promoting healthy packed lunches and would politely ask that you only provide your child with a healthy lunch, for example a Sandwich, salad, Pasta, Yogurt, Fruit. Please no chocolate or sweets.


At Rivacre Valley we are committed to safeguarding our children and work in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Local Safeguarding Childrens Board and Cheshire Police (Operation Encompass). Further details of our involvement in Operation Encompass can be found in a letter on the parent page.


The National School Breakfast Programme 

We are proud to announce our school has joined the government's National School Breakfast Programme which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.

From Monday 17th December we are pleased to offer a healthy breakfast and enjoy the benefits it brings, with children settled and ready to learn at the start of the school day. The breakfast starts at 8.30am and will be held in your child's classroom. Children will enter school, from the playground and go straight to their classroom where each child will be offered cereal, a bagel and a drink.

Early Start Club - In light of the start of the above Breakfast Programme, Friday 14th December will be the last Early Start Club.

S4YC - S4YC will still be providing a full childcare club service from 7.45am to start of school day. End of school day to 6.00pm during term time. If you require further information regarding this service please contact Kaye on 07717383702 or Paula on 0758107553
