At RIS our curriculum is underpinned by the values that we hold dear. The curriculum is how the school achieves its objective of educating children in the knowledge, skills, and understanding that they need to lead fulfilling lives.
These are the main values of our school, upon which we have based our curriculum:
We value the way in which all children are unique, and our curriculum promotes respect for the views of each individual child, as well as for people of all cultures. We value the spiritual and moral development of each person, as well as their intellectual and physical growth.
We value the importance of each person in our community. We organise our curriculum so that we encourage co-operation and understanding between all members of our community, promoting community cohesion.
We value the rights enjoyed by each person in our society. We respect each child in our school for their individuality, and we treat them with fairness and honesty. We aim to enable each person to be successful, and we provide equal opportunities for all the children in our school.
We value our environment and encourage sustainability. We aim, through our curriculum, to teach respect for our world; how we should care for it for future generations, as well as our own.
