We are at the start of a very exciting journey and have worked extremely hard over the last year to create a culture of high expectations across the school, supported every step of the way by our Trust. This has been achieved through the development of strong and positive relationships with staff, students, parents and carers. Our reflective approach means we are always striving to improve in all we do and believe that mistakes are only an opportunity to learn. Taking and broad holistic approach, we identify the barriers to learning that are likely to affect our students and work relentlessly to address them. Our aim is for all students in our care to have the capacity to achieve their full potential and for our curriculum to nurture and develop each child’s hidden talents throughout their time at RFSS. It is an exciting time to be working part of the RFSS family and as part of our trust Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow. RFSS opened in 2016, we relocated to our brand-new purpose-built facility in February 2020 and secured ‘Good’ in our most recent Ofsted inspection (July,2021). The road hasn’t been smooth, but it is a school committed to providing success for all its students and providing a workplace that supports its staff to ensure they are able to work to the best of their ability for our students every day. You won’t find teachers and staff anywhere else who are as committed to a school’s purpose and supporting its success. Relationships are at the heart of RFSS and underpin our new core values and we are always looking for dedicated staff who share our ethos and demonstrate our values. Please find below link to our website with the latest Ofsted report when we were graded as ‘Good’.
