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.
