As the Headteacher of Rawdon Littlemoor I am proud to say we have a happy, healthy school where we see ourselves as a family. Families look after each other, they support each other when the times are tough, they have fun together and they learn together.
We see every child as an individual that needs nurturing and bringing to their full potential. Respect is the corner stone of our school and you will see it between staff and children, children and children and staff and staff. This has created an ethos where our school is a great place to be.
The curriculum we offer is outstanding (as judged by Ofsted). We plan cross- curricular topics for each term on a two year rolling programme where we aim to bring learning to life and hope that when children leave us they have a thirst for learning for life.
In addition to our curriculum we enhance it with work on sustainability, health and creativity. Music, drama, outdoor learning, art, growing and planting and citizenship are all on our agenda. Our days are full and fulfilling.
One of the things we are proud of is that we are an inclusive school. We aim to give every child the chance to succeed. Over the years we have taken a number of hearing impaired children and they have enhanced the life of our school as every child now learns some basic signing.
Our school is currently full in every year group and this is testimony to its popularity. We feel flattered that we are over-subscribed every year because parents see our school as one where they know their child will receive an all-round education that is grounded in the core 3 subjects and will be the first step in preparing them for economic wellbeing as adults.
We are never complacent and strive for excellence continually so that each child’s education can be a happy, safe and rewarding one.
