1 RHODES AVENUE PRIMARY SCHOOL HEADTEACHER CANDIDATE INFORMATION

2 Rhodes Avenue School: A Vision for the Future Our children are at the heart of all we do. We aim to instil a love of learning in all our children and, with it, the confidence to take risks and develop ownership of their learning. We celebrate individuality and diversity in school, and deliver a curriculum which promotes in the children empathy, tolerance and an understanding of each other. A curriculum which places great emphasis on the arts, acknowledging the positive impact they have on children s engagement with their learning. Our school benefits from so many advantages, none more so than its own unique young people. It will continue to be a centre of high aspirations, promoting excellence, and supporting ambition and optimism, both in the present and also for the future. As the school moves forward, we are proud to restate our aims: Rhodes Avenue Primary School strives to provide the best in primary education. Working in partnership with the local community, the pupils, staff, parents, and governors continue to pursue excellence in all aspects of school life. Our aim is for all children to enjoy learning, and to achieve success in a healthy, happy, and inclusive environment. The school s ethos supports 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 wonder and magic of childhood, helping them to grow but not too fast. As a school, we embrace our pivotal role in the community we serve, and acknowledge the importance of contributing to the wider community. Both individually and collectively, we understand our role and consequent responsibilities as citizens, not only of Rhodes Avenue, but also of our local community, and of wider communities beyond both physical and virtual. The school aims to ensure that its pupils develop as global citizens in order that they are able to seize and shape their world. It is an imperative that, when our children come to the point when they are to move on from Rhodes Avenue, they have acquired and developed a range of skills and attitudes such as determination, curiosity, enthusiasm, tolerance, and moral and social awareness which will not only prepare them for their future learning, but also to serve as positive and useful members of their communities, ready to live happy and fulfilling lives. We value the commitment, skill and integrity of our staff. We will continue to work with them in an open and consensual way for the benefit of all within the school community. As the capacity of the school grows, enabling more career opportunities for its staff, and enhancing their skills, we aim to ensure that we develop future leaders of other schools in our communities and beyond, and that we share our knowledge and skills for the benefit of others. As it moves forward, the school aims to embrace the opportunities offered by its growth, both in terms of its physical size, and its increase in pupil numbers. In anticipation of the continuation of an ever developing and changing educational landscape, the school will be flexible, continuously striving to improve its provision for the pupils it serves. We will continue, with confidence, to sustain and promote the values that we hold dear, and to celebrate and espouse an educational practice known to deliver for our pupils the skills and attitudes that are necessary for them to achieve success academically, in the world of work, and for life. 2
