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 2019 Posted on: 08/03/2019

Book Week 2019

This week marked our annual Rockliffe Manor Book Week. Throughout this week the children have engaged in many exciting events and activities to further inspire and encourage their love of reading. To begin the week we opened the doors to our ever popular Book Fair where children were able to browse and purchase books, with a portion of all sales being donated back to school in book vouchers. We are pleased to share that this added up to a grand total of £557.94 which we can now use to purchase lots of lovely new books. We also launched our bookmark competition where for the donation of £1.00 children could design a bookmark to be in with a chance to win some fantastic prizes! This raised another £54.00 for our school fund and we would like to congratulate all who took part! We were also lucky enough to have author David Lucas visit us. David delivered hugely exciting assembly to the whole school as well us some really enjoyable and informative writing workshops. On Tuesday we held our annual 'Dad's Breakfast' event, where Dads, Grandads, Uncles and other male relatives were invited to share a delicious breakfast and a book with their children - thank you to everyone who joined us! Later on in the week children and staff celebrated World Book Day by dressing up as their favourite book characters and on Friday afternoon, to mark the end of Book Week, our children all took part in 'Buddy Reading' where they joined up with their friends from another class to spend time and share a book with eachother. What a wonderful week!
