VALUES AND VISION AT ROSEHILL
Rosehill Junior School is values and vision led. Our values and vision are at the core of everything we do at the school. They underpin our curriculum and promote a learning environment which ensures our young people are happy and confident and grow up to be well-rounded citizens.
THE ROSEHILL VISION
The education we provide will be of the best possible quality. Within an ethos of rights, respect and responsibility, each person's unique value is acknowledged, their needs recognised and their talents fully nurtured, enabling all our children to reach their full potential as successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.
The school's vision guides all our daily work and is an important statement of intent which communicates our values and ambitions. It is shared by all and focuses closely upon the children.
We actively promote the basic British values identified by our government i.e.
- The rule of law;
- Individual liberty;
- Mutual respect and tolerance for those of different faiths and beliefs.
In this way we ensure all our young people fully understand the importance of respect and leave our school well prepared for their next steps in education and for life in modern Britain. We readily share our government’s stated aim to ensure young people become valuable and fully rounded members of society who treat others with respect and tolerance, regardless of background.
THE UN CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD
We also actively promote respect for the United Nations Convention on the rights of the child, which applies to every child, without discrimination, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status, whatever they think or say, whatever their family background. The convention has 54 articles in total. Through our curriculum we will frequently refer to e.g.
The best interests of the child must be top priority in all decisions and actions that affect them.
Every child has the right to express their views in matters affecting them and the right for them to be taken seriously.
Every child has the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and social needs and support their development.
Every child has the right to an education.
Every child has the right to relax, play and take part in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.
The school’s leaders and governors ensure our values and vision are promoted consistently through the curriculum by all members of staff on a daily basis. This is seen as essential in providing the best possible learning environment for all our young people.
