Whether you are a current parent/carer or are considering sending your child here in the future, or simply interested in our school, I hope you will find our website interesting and informative.
Staff, the Governors and I believe that Rhodes Avenue Primary is a very special school where our children are at the heart of all we do. We are a centre of high aspirations, which celebrates all levels and genres of achievement. We are a school which promotes optimism and develops self belief, ambition and challenge across the curriculum, within an inclusive environment.
The school’s ethos and values support parents and families in raising children who will grow to become responsible adults, ready to meet the demands of a fast-moving world, whilst treasuring the awe, wonder and magic of childhood. We support our pupils to grow – but not too fast!
As a school, we embrace our pivotal role in the community that we serve, and acknowledge the importance of contributing to the wider society beyond the school gates. Both individually and collectively, the school understand its role and consequent responsibilities as citizens, within Rhodes Avenue Primary School and also within our local environment and wider communities – both physical and virtual. The school aims to ensure that its pupils develop as global citizens in order that they are able to seize and shape the world that awaits them.

- Embed systems to ensure our pupils receive outstanding learning opportunities through high quality teaching and resourcing;
- Parents and and carers feel actively involved in their child’s learning;
