Riversdale Primary School provides a happy, stimulating learning environment where every child is valued. We seek to develop the attitudes, skills and knowledge which will help pupils achieve their true potential through praise, encouragement and high expectations of work and behaviour.
We aim to:
Provide a broad and balanced curriculum with a sound grounding in the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy together with the independence and confidence to apply these skills.
Foster lively, enquiring minds and enthusiasm for learning by treating children as individuals and building on their success.
Make children feel valued and respected so they can be confident and secure; willing to seek help in the understanding that overcoming difficulty is part of the learning process.
Develop, through example and explanation, a sense of responsibility, self discipline and respect – for one another, the school and community.
Show the importance of socialising and collaborating with sensitivity, consideration and humour.
Encourage aesthetic and spiritual awareness.
Allow children, staff, parents, governors and the community to share in our achievements and take pride in our school.
