About Riverside School, Tadcaster

Our Inclusion Statement

We believe we are very fortunate to live in a society rich in different cultures, ethnic backgrounds, skin colours and religions. The school aims to promote positive attitudes to gender equality, cultural diversity and special needs of all kinds. We aim to educate, develop and prepare all our children for life. Prejudice and discrimination on the basis of colour, culture, origin, gender or ability is unacceptable. The school is committed to working towards equality of access, provision and treatment for all staff and pupils, regardless of race, culture, language, nationality, religion and other differences. We acknowledge the complexity of British society and recognise that it would be failing the children if it did not prepare them for their integral part in it. We aim to help our children make the most effective use of their talents, both for the benefit of others and to achieve self-fulfilment.

We believe and encourage therefore that each member of our school community;

Feel happy and secure
Feel able to work to their fullest capacity
Feel respected as an individual who contributes positively to school life
And this applies to everyone.

Our Mission Statement

To encourage the development of a community in which there is a sharing of values and interests underpinned by an explicit ethos which is seen to promote the development of a secure environment: an environment in which all children and adults feel happy and valued, where personal endeavour is encouraged and the pursuit of high standards fostered. Every opportunity should be sought to enable all children to develop to their full potential and sustain a love of learning throughout their lives.

Furthermore, Riverside School seeks to meet the challenge presented to education by children, parents and society: a challenge to successfully fulfil the school's part in helping all the children in its care to grow up to become competent, confident, rational and self-reliant adults who can manage their own lives, play their part in society and feel valued contributors.

At Riverside School we….

Take pride in our school and our achievements together
Respect others and their beliefs
Care for the world; near and far
Make ‘learning’ an exciting, fun activity for life
Listen to, and care for each other
