The Riverview Family of Schools was established in September 2022 with the aim of achieving excellence in every aspect of education for the community of Barton and beyond.
We are a federation of Baysgarth secondary school and Castledyke primary school. A federation is not the same as a MAT or a trust. We are still local authority maintained schools; we just have one governing body across the two schools. This allows us to take more strategic decisions about the education of children in our community from age 3-16.
At the moment there are six different elements to the federation:
- Baysgarth School
- Castledyke Primary School
- Headway Alternative Provision
- Get Ahead
- Baysgarth Sports Village
- Riverview Institute for Teacher Education
We are ambitious for our future and want to grow and expand our federation. We believe we provide a unique combination of outstanding outcomes, outstanding inclusion and outstanding facilities, all supported by brilliant staff with a passion for school improvement.
