OUR VALUES AND VISION

Our Vision

ROCKLIFFE MANOR IS A VALUES-LED SCHOOL IN WHICH STAFF MODEL THE RESPECT FOR OTHERS, SELF AND THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT THAT WE WISH TO PROMOTE.

With clear boundaries for behaviour through our ‘golden rules’ and consistent but fair consequences, children understand the parameters and feel safe in school. We nurture good behaviour through building relationships with pupils and engaging them in exciting learning experiences that respect individuals and build self-esteem. 

We know that providing the best possible start helps to ensure lifelong learning success.  This is why we place great emphasis on ensuring that children feel secure and happy from day one.  Learning is designed to follow their interests and each transition – from nursery to reception, through infants and into juniors – is carefully planned to ensure a smooth and worry-free progression.

Throughout their time with us, we provide a range of opportunities – including peer mentoring, pupil collaboration for learning projects and a thriving school council – to ensure that pupils are heard and know that their opinions are valued.

 

Values Education at Rockliffe Manor

At Rockliffe Manor Primary School we promote a values education: a curriculum supported by a set of positive values. It creates a strong learning environment that enhances academic attainment, and develops the children’s social and relationship skills that last throughout their lives.

The positive learning environment is achieved through the positive values modelled by staff throughout the school. At Rockliffe Manor we believe that a values education encourages children to take greater responsibility for their behaviour and learning.  

We believe that a values education equips the children with social and relationship skills and attitudes to succeed at school and beyond.  We hope this type of education system will inspire children to develop their own positive personal, social, moral and spiritual values

Our values inspire every assembly, classroom and on the playground. The children and staff reviewed our school values in September 2014 and chose the following six core values which we promote whenever possible:  

  • Kindness
  • Respect
  • Effort
  • Cooperation
  • Responsibility
  • Individuality

Book Week 2018 Posted on: 09/03/2018

Book Week 2018

This week Rockliffe Manor celebrated our annual Book Week. Throughout the week the children have participated in many exciting activities and events to further inspire and encourage their love of reading. To kick off the week children and parents were welcomed to our Book Fair where they were able to browse and purchase books using their £1.00 money off book token. The children were also introduced to our sponsored read, in aid of the Read for Good charity, and we also launched our Reading Snapshot competition. On Tuesday, Rockliffe Manor held our ever popular Dad's Breakfast, where Dads, Grandads, Uncles and other male relatives were invited in to share a delicious breakfast and a book with their children - thank you to all of those who joined us, there wasn't a spare seat in the house! Also on Tuesday were the finals of our annual Spelling Bee where our finalists were tested on words from famous children's books. We would like to congratulate all of our winners and finalists, as well as all others who took part. On Wednesday we were lucky enough to be visited by African Storyteller, Usifu Jalloh, who delivered an enormously enjoyable assembly and story telling workshops based around our core value of cooperation. Excitingly, Usifu was also joined by a film crew as he is in the process of making a documentary about his work in both the UK and Sierra Leone. After the success of his workshops last year, children's author John Owen Theobald joined us on Thursday to lead an assembly and some informative writing workshops for our older children. To mark the end of Book Week the children and staff were invited to come to school dressed as their favourite book characters, and on Friday afternoon we also took part in 'Buddy Reading' where the children joined up with a member of another class to share a book together. What a great week!
