Values and Ethos
Our vision is LIFE: Learning, Integrity, Friendship and Excellence.
Learning: Developing a passion for creativity and lifelong learning
Integrity: Demonstrating honesty and fairness
Friendship: Encouraging teamwork and mutual respect
Excellence: Achieving exemplary standards
Our focus on learning outcomes will enhance the life chances of all of the young people in our community to allow them to achieve economic wellbeing and take their place in society as active, global citizens. Academic excellence is of prime importance but it is not the measure of a human being’s worth. Our students achieve because they learn in a happy, friendly community where the contributions of all staff and students are valued. Learning at Roundwood Park is driven by Aspire: Learning for LIFE@RPS which sets out the learning habits which we will introduce, nurture and care for in all of our students, regardless of their ability, aptitudes or personalities. Learning for LIFE@RPS has been created as a result of many years of expertise in serving our community and through consultations with our students, parents, governors, support staff, many of whom are parents themselves, and our teaching staff.
Our learning habits will ensure that our students can acquire, apply and use their knowledge effectively, as well as enable them to face the challenges of an ever- changing world as our alumni.
We will ensure that our students thrive by delivering high quality opportunities to learn and develop inside classrooms and around the school, on trips within the UK, on visits to global destinations and at home in a well-planned, well-implemented curriculum and super-curriculum.
