Pastoral care is at the heart of everything we do. With around 300 children in the school, all the faces in the corridor are familiar and teachers know their pupils very well. This friendly and supportive family atmosphere means children feel happy and secure. And when they’re happy and secure they’re ready to learn.
The school has an on site nurse and close links with supporting professionals such as speech therapists. The experienced pastoral team works closely together to provide individual support for any child experiencing difficulties. This holistic approach means we can provide personalised care when it’s needed.
We are proud of the strong rapport and mutual respect between staff and pupils at Rose Hill. We work hard to create a supportive and caring environment.
We aim for every child to gain a sense of individual and community achievement by celebrating academic, sporting, musical or artistic successes. We want every pupil to develop a sense of belonging, self-reliance and discipline and be prepared for the challenges that await them.
There is also a thriving House System, which fosters competition and supports the pastoral side of life. House points provide positive rewards for good behaviour and personal progress. In the Prep School, a personalised Pupil Planner underpins our regular school-home contact.
A daily Assembly reflects the Christian ethos of the school through hymns and prayers and pupils are given regular opportunities to be involved.
The children are often to be seen in the school’s woodland area. Our ‘woodland warriors’ freely explore the nature trails, make artwork from the treasures they find, build camps and so much more. This creative way of learning leaves children inspired, energised and bursting with stories of their muddy adventures.
We have an outdoor space under a canopy of trees where children use the natural world to unlock traditional academic subjects. We believe this connection with the great outdoors boosts emotional and physical wellbeing and inspires children to explore the world around them.
