Riverside Out of School Care (ROSC) provides care to a maximum of 40 schoolchildren at any one time. The age range is 4 ½ to 14. It operates 50 weeks of the year.
We operate from the flexible learning area within Riverside Primary School which has a secure entry system. We use a large airy room and have access to the school gym hall and playgrounds. We offer a wide range of activities, both indoor and outdoor and during the holiday club we go out and about exploring the local environment and further afield on occasional trips. If you would like to find out more information about ROSC please request our Parent Handbook through the contact us page.

ROSC is committed to providing an inclusive environment for all children. We provide some places for children with additional support needs but we are not a specialist resource. Where possible, children with additional support needs will have access to the same facilities, activities and play opportunities as their peers. We are committed to providing a service and environment, within our resources and available funding, which will allow children with additional support needs full access to these play opportunities making reasonable adjustments where necessary.
ROSC is a charity run by a volunteer parent committee. All parents and carers whose children attend ROSC are automatically members of the organisation and are encouraged to become involved.
We have a closed Facebook group for the parents and guardians of children attending ROSC at https://www.facebook.com/groups/rosckids/
