Our Ethos and Values

Rothbury First School aims to ensure that all children achieve their full potential in all subjects of the curriculum and in all aspects of school life.

We aim for children to have high expectations, independence, confidence, self esteem and a sense of responsibility for themselves and others.

We will:

  • provide a broad and balanced curriculum through which all children develop the basic skills of communication, literacy and numeracy
  • promote the health and well being of children
  • give opportunities for children to develop an appreciation of and curiosity about their world
  • foster in children a recognition of and an understanding of people’s differences and similarities
  • help children to understand how their actions affect others and to develop a sense of what is right and wrong
  • prepare children to play their part in the community
  • provide a caring environment in which children feel secure and happy and are able to adapt to different situations
  • treat each child as an individual and build on their strengths
  • welcome and support families, governors and the people of the community to contribute to the life of the school
