I am truly thrilled to have become the Head of Whole School. The future for our Foundation Stages to Year 6 students epitomises the core standards of the Fortes group, where personalisation, growth and excellence is at the forefront of its growing reputation. The aim for RIS will be to continue to be a highly regarded and dynamic school, where all learners find it a rewarding and positive environment; one where they are prepared for life ahead through our curriculum and our co-curricular activity provision. At the core of what we do there must be challenge, integrity and humility for all working or connected with the school and the brand that is Fortes Education. We can then all build upon the latest most positive DSIB Inspection Report of 2015-16.
My previous experiences as a Head suggests that partnerships are fundamental to success and this must be a core focus within the school; this in turn lends itself to a learning environment that is engaging and ultimately ensures high achievement. The staff and I have great expectations in terms of the learners’ attitudes, behaviour and work ethic in order for them to fulfil their optimum potential. Of equal importance is that the school can rely on your support from home to reinforce our core values too.
We really believe actions speak louder than words, so it would be my pleasure to invite you to come and see the vibrant working environment at RIS for yourself.
