May I take this opportunity as Headteacher of Rivermead to welcome you to find out a little more about us through our website.
We want to enable young people to progress and have every life opportunity to the very best of their ability in a complete holistic way. At Rivermead it is about the ‘person’, the complete ‘person’, to ensure that no-one falls through the net. We value our learners equally whatever the difference in their abilities or behaviours and believe that every child matters. We believe that all children deserve the best educational opportunities. We aim to achieve this with a safe, secure and caring environment.
We want every child to be able to engage actively in learning and so be able to reach their full potential in all areas of school life knowing that they are cared for and supported. We celebrate every success and want our learners to be happy to come to school and we provide a range of educational, social and cultural activities that will allow them to flourish.
We celebrate our school ethos by presenting the school as ‘our school’ so that each individual; learners, staff, parents and governors feel that they have a sense of belonging, a sense of togetherness like a big family. We have high expectations through a close partnership between learners, staff, governors and parents.
We want a Rivermead learner to develop the skills to become employable, self-confident and to be able to contribute in a positive way to their community. We will continue to develop this in all areas of our work as well as discretely in our work experience programme, college link programme and our life-skills teaching.
We are passionate about our progression and enjoy in the continuing quest for excellence for the future to enable learners to progress to the very best that they can be.
Thank you for taking the time to read the information on our website and if you have any questions please feel free to contact our school office.
