‘It was abundantly clear to the Visiting Team that staff members at Riverside feel an extremely strong sense of attachment to their school. They carry out their duties with an extraordinary level of commitment, and working relationships among staff are excellent. Indeed, the school seems permeated by a sense of mutual support and cooperation that goes much deeper than written policy and stems directly from the School’s Core Values’.
‘The Visiting Team was struck by the caring and supportive atmosphere of Riverside School, and this undoubtedly reflects the dedication, enthusiasm and professionalism of the staff body. What is perhaps most striking is the high level of commitment to the School’s fundamental values and principles shown by staff, and the way in which these values are visibly demonstrated in the everyday life of the School. In terms of the staff body, the School has an outstanding platform on which to build as it continues to expand.’
