At Roundwood Park our Teaching and Learning vision recognises the need to equip our students for life, to be flexible, adaptable, resilient and relish a challenge. We call this ASPIRE.
Here is our vision for the Roundwood Park Leaver. We asked all those in our community to summarise the attributes they believed were most important for our leavers to possess and this is what they came up with…
This word cloud is all around our school and is a reminder of what we are and why we are here.
Our next step following the establishment of our RPS Leaver vision, was to design a clear framework of learning habits for all members of the Roundwood Park community to develop and instil whilst at school and beyond.
The ASPIRE Framework
Here is our ASPIRE ‘learning habits’ framework.
All of this is about instilling a life-long love of learning so that by the time our students are ready to leave school and move on to the next challenges in their lives they are ready to take on more, adapt and grow as people, not to stand still, or worse go backwards, because learning has become a chore or even a fear.
Whilst your children are with us, it is our pledge to you that Roundwood Park will prepare your child for any challenges a changing world will provide and it is through these habits that we will succeed.
If we are to serve our students well as a school, as parents, as a society, we need to create a framework for education which goes beyond the important qualifications they achieve and creates a generation who are ready to meet the challenge of this dynamic world.
