Vision and Values
Aims of the Trust
At Rosedale Primary, we are committed to providing high quality education for all of our learners, ensuring that every member of the school community is valued and respected, always being treated in a manner that is appropriate and just. We aim to be a caring community where everyone is safe and secure.
Good behaviour is a necessary condition before effective learning can take place. With that said, this does not mean a rigid or punitive system designed to enforce a particular set of rules. At Rosedale, our priority is to promote positive relationships so that everyone can work productively together, sharing a common sense of purpose; each achieving the very best they can. Rosedale rewards good behaviour, recognises success and regularly celebrates children’s achievement. We use praise to encourage good behaviour with the firm conviction that every child can become self-aware, independent and confident, both academically and socially. Above all else, we aim to provide a stimulating environment where early learning goals can be achieved and recorded through structured learning and play; always instilling the importance of patience, persistence and resilience at every stage.
We provide an atmosphere which enables our children to acquire a wide range of knowledge, skills and practical abilities. We strive for excellence in all we do. Our school ethos is built around the 6 R’s of:
These R’s are used as a cornerstone in how we deal with all situations at our school and how we reward our children. We believe that by demonstrating the R’s every day, children will become positive members of their school and local community.
We want to ensure that you have a say about your child’s learning and development. Our aim is to keep you fully involved; supporting your child in any way we can; recognising that each family has its own unique circumstances; always ‘nurturing potential, changing lives’.
"The Rosedale Hewens Academy Trust is dedicated to making effective use of all adults so as to guarantee effective learning and safeguard the well-being of all its learners".
Our main aim is to maintain a sharp focus on the development and continuous improvement of effective classroom practice; creating environments where good teaching is a constant; being both expected and valued highly by the leadership teams and the wider Trust. Accordingly, there is zero tolerance in respect of poor and uninspiring teaching; establishing professional expectations which are underpinned by policy and procedures; ensuring high calibre teachers are retained and recruited.
Common goals and aspirations for teaching and learning ensure that both staff and learners feel valued for their unique personal qualities and abilities, yet challenged in all that they undertake. As part of the overall offer at each school and college, the Trust will recognise and reward excellence in teaching, inspire and foster excellence in learning; always striving to deliver the best possible outcomes for the learners.
We regularly assess the development and learning needs of each child throughout the school year and routinely meet at the beginning of each term with parents, guardians and carers to provide up-to-date feedback.
In so doing, it is possible to quickly determine which areas of learning need further development and where each child’s particular strengths and future needs lie.
From the outset we encourage full involvement in your child’s learning and routinely provide a variety of activities which can be completed at home. The nature of this home learning depends on the age and ability of the child; promoting a meaningful partnership between home and school; ensuring that all children have the opportunity to practice new skills acquired at school, reinforcing concepts, knowledge and understanding in all areas of the curriculum. In the longer term, it helps children to develop good working habits and ultimately means they become independent learners. Generally the focus is on reading, spelling, multiplication tables and mental arithmetic. However, Rosedale also values topic based learning which allows individual children to pursue areas of their own interest and co-construct future learning.
It is also important to understand what we mean by ‘stage not age’ given that some children are generally very able, whilst others have specific gifts and talents which can be readily accelerated. Therefore it is important that every child is fully extended with the most able working occasionally with older children in specific areas of the curriculum. Whatever a child’s ability might be, we aim at all times to cater for this through careful differentiation, intervention and enrichment programmes, always focused on getting the very best from each child.
We strive for excellence in all we do. Our school ethos is built around the 6 ‘R’s and these R’s are used as a cornerstone in how we deal with all situations at our school and how we reward our children. We believe that by demonstrating these R’s every day, children will become positive members of their school and local community.
