About Us


Riston Primary is a thriving village school serving a wide rural community in East Yorkshire. We have about 88 children on role and so are smaller than the average primary school but we didn’t used to be this big! When I was appointed as Headteacher in 1994 we had 30 children, a very uninspiring Victorian building and a prefab classroom which housed the children of infant age and the school toilets! In 1999 the school was placed in special measures even though we had the best KS2 results at 100% level 4 and above in all subjects but this was the beginning of the times when small schools were seen as expensive and unable to meet the wider educational needs of the children. As a church school we were also inspected under the Guidance for Church School Inspections which catagorised the school as good. The school was taken out of special measures within 2 years and since then has been recognised as a good school by several different inspectors under the changing inspection regulations.
