To make sure we do the best for every child at Rose Hill, we aim to:
a) enable every child to achieve his/her full academic potential (including Special Needs and Gifted and Talented provision) in small classes.
b) help all pupils to develop their individual personalities within the framework of a stimulating environment.
c) provide a strong pastoral system which responds to the needs of the individual.
d) develop a partnership between home and school by communicating the social and academic progress of each child to parents through regular parents’ evenings, mid-term assessments, detailed end of term reports and personal contact.
e) foster as many possible talents of the individual, eg musical, artistic, sporting, dramatic or other, by providing an environment which motivates the child to explore the wide range of activities available at Rose Hill.
f) encourage positive relationships, good manners, social awareness, and a sense of responsibility and discipline in a supportive Christian community.
The DfE have recently reinforced the need "to create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs."
At Rose Hill, we already develop the core aspects of British values through the Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural (SMSC) work that is integrated through the curriculum and through timetabled Personal, Social & Health Education (PSHE) lessons.
This development is also promoted through the values and attitudes of staff who provide a model of behaviour for our pupils. As stated in our school aims, we ‘’ encourage positive relationships, good manners, social awareness, and a sense of responsibility and discipline in a supportive Christian community.’’
As a school, we value and celebrate this country’s rich and diverse heritage. In practical terms, this means that we celebrate traditions in the course of the year, for example, Harvest Festival and Remembrance Day, through a carefully planned Assembly programme.
Pupil planners in the Prep School include the following information:
You have the opportunity to be elected on to our school council. This allows pupil voice to help to improve the school.

RULE OF LAW
Our Code of Behaviour Policy was agreed by the pupils.
If you make a bad behaviour choice, you will be encouraged to reflect and discuss this with teachers.
We have visitors to the school to talk about the law.
Like every pupil, you have the right to feel safe. You can talk to anyone if you feel the need or we have ‘Worry Boxes’ for you to use
You will have a choice of lots of new activities to try – it doesn’t matter if what you like is different to someone else
You will be known very well by your teachers and your Form Tutor is there to help you and encourage you
You will have opportunities to take on responsibility such as Form Captain, Library Monitor and Prefect.
Respect is the key word in our code of behaviour.
Make sure you read it and keep to it
