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 National Support School, we embrace our pivotal role in the community that we serve. Rhodes Avenue Primary School acknowledges the importance of contributing to the wider society beyond the school gates and we strive to fulfil this role and the concomitant responsibilities – within the school, within our local environment and beyond in wider society – in both the physical and virtual worlds. The school aims to ensure that its pupils and staff develop as global citizens in order that they are able to seize and shape the world that awaits them.
School Priorities 2021 – 2022
This year our targets are as follows:
Lead by Action and Example
Leadership, at all levels, continues to enable pupils and staff to excel through high expectations and aspirations. Leaders are fully accountable for the progress, attainment and wellbeing of all pupils and staff – allowing everyone the opportunity to succeed and reach their full potential.
Equality; teaching cultural identity, race and racism
Equality, cultural identity and race is celebrated, promoted and taught throughout all aspects of school life. Rhodes Avenue Primary is actively anti-racist.
Consistency; a key to accelerated progress
To embed school priorities that enable pupils to continue to link their knowledge within and across subject areas; teachers demonstrate a deep understanding of subject content and language so pupils make sustained and substantial progress and wellbeing systems and structures enable all school members to flourish.
Children are the centre of our world.
To implementing the revised EYFS Statutory Framework into previous outstanding practice to ensure pupils remain central to all learning. Connections are made with families and communities to ensure pupil wellbeing, health and learning central in providing strong foundations for learning.
