OUR VALUES AND 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:
