The Rivers C. of E. Academy Trust Charter
Vision and Goals
Our vision is encapsulated in the words: ‘love, learn, live’.
Our goal is that learners will love learning for life.
In reaching this goal, our family of schools love, learn and live together, guided by strong beliefs, moral purpose and faith.
We are committed to nurturing all our learners - children and adults, represented by:
the head (knowledge), hand (skills) and most importantly the heart (beliefs, values, attitudes, positive habits and behaviours). In our academy our heart is strong and is integral to our moral and religious character.
We will achieve our vision if:
The community is passionate about learning.
Everyone’s point of view is heard and appreciated.
The curriculum is engaging, inspiring and challenging for all learners.
Children experience outstanding learning and teaching enabling them to excel within a vibrant, happy and safe learning environment.
A Culture of Collaboration
The Rivers Academy Trust will be a connected learning community where:
Collaboration is key to providing the best learning opportunities through a meaningful curriculum where children and adults acquire the knowledge, skills and positive attitudes to prepare and strengthen them for their role in society: today, tomorrow and in the future.
Climate Is Around Us – Culture is Part of Us:
We are a family of schools that celebrate our individual character. Our schools may have different systems, pedagogies and climates, but we aim to share the same learning culture. Fundamentally, we understand the need to focus on learning and the impact of teaching.
