Dear New Prospective Parents/Carers,
At Round Hill Primary School we believe that education is about inspiring young children to open their minds to a lifetime of learning. We are a large school with traditional values and an unrivalled setting.
We believe children learn better when they are excited and engaged. What excites and engages children most is truly excellent teaching, which challenges them and promotes independence in learning.
When there is joy in what children are doing,
children learn to love learning
We believe class work should be relevant, valued by the child, challenging with built-in rigour. If children are to progress in tomorrow’s world they will need to be independent from an early age. It is vital children develop the skills and strategies of how to learn rather than the habit of being taught; starting in the Foundation Unit by learning through play based self-initiated activities to creative research projects in Year 6.
Whilst it is vitally important for children to be both numerate and literate, they will also need to be flexible, and able to work confidently with changing technology. Children will require excellent communication skills and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team. Our key educational aim is to encourage each child to work to his or her potential.
If you hear our children use the words ‘This is the best school in the world’ it is because that is the message we want to spread.
Along with the staff, governors and pupils,
we intend to make Round Hill an outstanding school.
Success in most ventures requires vision, determination, and teamwork. The staff team are determined to get the right balance between traditional values with the demands of a rapidly changing world. We are passionate and determined to offer your child a high quality education and to ensure your child reaches their full potential.
With your support and the encouragement you can give your child, we can build a strong partnership which will enhance your child’s education at Round Hill. Excellent communication with parents is really important to us. It is a good idea to check the Round Hill School Website www.roundhill.notts.sch.uk regularly as copies of all letters to parents are posted there as well many other details about school life.
If you would like to have a tour of the school please contact the school office to arrange an appointment.
