Is i an Ghaeilge bunchloch na scoile agus is iad na páistí croílár an ghaelscolaíocht. Is orthu siúd atáimid ag brath chun an Ghaeilge a chur ar aghaidh go dtí an chéad ghlúin eile. (Ár bpolasaí Gaeilge, Gaelscoileanna 2005,lch7)

  • Is i an Ghaeilge an teanga chumarsáide agus ghnó na scoile. Labhrófar Gaeilge i gcónaí sa scoil agus ag ócáidí scoile. Cuirtear neart tacaíocht ar fáil dóibh siúd ar mian leo feabhas a chur ar a nGaeilge féin
  • Is gaelscoil ilchreidmheach í Gaelscoil Riada a aithníonn na héagsúlachtaí (spioradálta, morálta agus cultúrtha, intleachtúla, fisicíula, sóisialta, ealaíonta,) agus difríochtaí atá idir páistí agus an gá atá ann le tuiscint agus meas ar na h-éagsúlachtaí seo a chothú. Déantar é seo a fhorbairt dé réir treoirlínte an Core-Churaclam Creidimh’ Ag Foghlaim le Chéile’ agus an chúrsa OSPS (1999)

Language is the foundation of the school and the children are at the heart of gaelscolaíocht. We depend on them to pass on the Irish language to the next generation. (Our Irish Language policy, Gaelscoileanna 2005, lch7)
