Welcome to Risley Avenue Primary School. We are situated in Tottenham in the London Borough of Haringey, close to Bruce Castle Park and Bruce Castle Museum, on The Roundway.
The school is a three form entry Primary School with an Early Years Foundation Stage which comprises Reception and Nursery Classes and a 2 year old provision. We serve a very diverse community and our school population, pupils and staff, reflects our community; pupils refer to our school as a “Rainbow School”. Our children speak over 40 different languages and come from a range of cultures, religions and backgrounds, which we respect and value. It is a happy and stimulating learning environment where every child is encouraged and supported to achieve their very best.
You will find lots of information on our website, but please feel free to either visit or call the School Office if you have any questions. Click here to see a virtual tour of Risley.
On Tuesdays prospective parents are warmly welcomed to our open day from 9:15am where either myself or one of the Senior Leadership Team will gladly meet with you and provide you with a tour of our wonderful school. Click here to book a date!
Every Friday I hold coffee mornings for our existing parent/carers at 9:40am to discuss any matters or concerns you may have. We are an inclusive school and make every effort to accommodate all visits to the school.

Here at Risley we challenge and support every pupil to achieve their full potential in an atmosphere of respect. We prepare our children through irresistible learning opportunities to grow into responsible, respectful, independent citizens who are equipped and confident to take their place in the wider world. Parents, governors, staff and children in this learning community strive every day to make Risley a vibrant, inclusive, safe and happy school. We aim to be remembered by all who come here as a place where learning is at the heart of living.
We are always excited to host the Lang Lang Music Foundation Scholars each year who bring Risley pupils an amazing insight to the world of music and piano. Risley is now gaining a reputation for producing young fine pianists with regular entrants for The Trinity College London Piano examinations. Risley pupils consistently achieve passes with Distinctions and Merits.
Haringey Music Service (HMS) is a vibrant and busy organisation through which young people are nurtured and encouraged to build on their musical ability and experiences, and strengthen their skills, knowledge, understanding and appreciation of music as an art form. HMS coordinates individual, group and whole class instrumental and vocal music at Risley School, drawing on the services of a highly skilled and carefully vetted team of over 150 freelance tutors, most of whom are also performing musicians in London orchestras, bands and beyond.
Risley Avenue Primary is a member of the North London Schools International Network and they have a partnership arrangement with Shunde Education Bureau in Shunde, Guangzhou province, China. The wider strategic focus for this Area Link is the development of collaborative curriculum based activities and joint educational approaches. Every year, Risley welcomes two teachers from our partner school Jun’an Central Primary School who teach pupils Mandarin and Chinese culture.
