Values and Ethos



Welcome to Riverview Junior School. My name is Mr James Kendall and I am lucky enough to call myself Headteacher of this wonderful school.


Our VISION is simple:


‘100% of our pupils will be academically and personally ready for the next stage of their educational career’


Our Curriculum Promise:


At Riverview Junior School we provide a diverse, challenging and inspiring curriculum that enables children to develop confidence, resilience and a sense of achievement at every level. All pupils will be taught the importance of individuality and the need to respect others and the environment - both local and across the wider world. We educate and enable the children of our future to grow into well-rounded citizens.


This vision and Curriculum Promise is delivered through five key AIMS:


  • An absolute focus on raising the educational and personal standards for all.
  • For Riverview to be a model of excellence within the Pathway trust and have an impact beyond their own site for the good of the children across the area.
  • Partnering for Performance to develop a collaborative, supportive and nurturing environment for all stakeholders
  • Raising Attitude & Aptitude to ensure we are consistently good or better.
  • WELL-BEING is paramount for ALL and children learn in a safe, fair and fun environment which leads to life-long, independent learning






Our goal of personal growth and our school Motto is achieved through our outstanding pastoral care and by developing a culture that is driven by five Core Values:







In practical terms we ensure that we:


  • Live and model our values within our school curriculum and learning community
  • Give opportunities for pupils to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the environment through the adoption of these and British Values
