Firstly we would like to offer our heartfelt condolences to the family of Riley at this time. He has attended Worth Valley Primary School’s Reception class since September and has become a well liked member of the class.
Riley was a lively and enthusiastic boy with a cheeky sense of humour. After taking time to get to know us he was beginning to show his own personality.
He will be sadly missed by the children and staff.
