Our Vision, Ethos and Values

Our Vision

At the Ryes we believe in

Building a Caring Environment Together That Nurtures Individual, Life Long Growth and Positive Experiences. 

Our Ethos is that:

  • All children have the ability to learn

  • Children come to school with knowledge and experience of the world; our role is to help them to develop new understandings and skills

  • All children, regardless of social background or academic ability, have the right to a good quality education.

Our Values

We use the Secure Base Model for Schools as our platform for Education
