“Sharing life in all its fullness.”
At Rockwell Green Primary School the curriculum and school values provide the foundation for all that we do. Our curriculum is purposeful and relevant to our children and their lives. Our aim is to engage our children in enjoyable learning experiences which will enable them to develop the skills they need to succeed in a rapidly changing world. We hope to instil in them a lifelong love of learning and curiosity which will motivate them to flourish. We aim to ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential in a caring and friendly environment.
The curriculum at Rockwell Green Primary School provides a broad, balanced and enriched education, and has strong and intentional cross-curricular links to aid memory and retention of the content. We place a high importance on English and communication (including reading, writing and speaking and listening), mathematics and an understanding of the wider world and our local community. We want our children to be confident, capable, hard-working and determined people, who possess a sense of personal duty and an understanding of the Christian ethos and values which will enable them to make the best contribution possible to the community in which they live.
Our School Values
Rockwell Green’s Christian Ethos Values are at the heart of the curriculum each day and are taught and referred to explicitly through Collective Worship and celebration assembles. Respect is always our value in the first half-term of the academic year:
Our School Learning Behaviours
Rockwell Green’s learning behaviours of Determination, Communication and Curiosity are at the heart of our learning approach to help children become successful learners. As part of the process, the children created and voted for the character to represent the behaviours we aspire to in school. Through these behaviours we aim to help the children develop a growth mindset so that they can develop resilience and are not afraid to make mistakes. We want to support the children to reflect on their learning and understand how they learn best and can be successful. We talk with the children about being in the challenge zone and how this might feel when learning is difficult.
Our Primary Aims
- To form supportive partnerships between pupils, staff, parents/carers, governors, other agencies and the local and wider community to enable the positive development of each learner’s academic and social skills
- To teach our children subject specific skills to ensure that our children are learning how to become historians, geographers, scientists, musicians and artists of the future.
- To ensure our children leave Rockwell Green with a broad knowledge base embodied in the National Curriculum as a basis for the educational development of children.
- To provide cross curricular links to ensure that pupils’ learning has even greater coherence and depth.
- To create a secure, stimulating and industrious environment which fosters the development of all learners, so that they are appropriately challenged, make good or better progress and achieve their full potential.
- To promote positive attitudes in our school community with an emphasis on respect for oneself and others (their beliefs, culture, home background and property), self-discipline, resilience, cooperation and courtesy, enabling pupils to become good citizens in their own community and in a national and global context.
