Vision & Values
Our Vision is for every child at Riverside School is that... from the very first day in EYFS, through excellent teaching and a great curriculum, we will work very closely with and support all parents to give every child the essential tools for their own toolbox for life. Through EYFS and KS1, every child will become:
- An enthusiastic, regular attender who arrives at school punctually and is highly motivated.
- A fluent reader.
- A highly competent young mathematician.
We believe this will set each and every pupil up ready for KS2 where we will continue to add more tools to their tool box.
We will further enrich every child with experiences and opportunities for them to flourish here and beyond, and we will expand their horizons all from within a safe and caring environment that will nurture and develop children.
By the time children leave us at the end of KS2, they will be:
- Skilled communicators and mathematicians.
- Well-rounded learners with a broad knowledge of the sciences, humanities and creative arts.
- Independent and open to their own potential.
We are responsible for ourselves – if it’s to be, it’s up to me! We are organised and prepared and recognise the consequences of our actions on ourselves and others.
We are brave and we take chances. We develop resilience to keep going even when things are tough. We face our fears and we are not afraid to make mistakes.
We show respect to everyone in our community. We treat others how we want to be treated – using manners, being thoughtful and kind and celebrating diversity.
We believe we can achieve anything we put our minds to. We reflect on how we can be successful, we aim high, have a positive attitude and want to be the best we can be.
We are ready to embrace opportunities; we are proud of who we are and where we are from. We believe in our abilities and celebrate our successes and are ready and eager to learn more.
