  • Building and developing upon individual strengths and talents.

The ‘Round Hill Way’

The ‘Round Hill Way’ was devised by children in 2006 and was revised and updated by the current pupils in July 2011. It is a set of only five ‘child friendly’ statements which are posted in classrooms, appear in the pupils' planners and regularly feature in PSHE lessons and in assemblies.   

  1. I smile and say hello
  2. I listen to learn
  3. I care for everyone and everything
  4. I keep healthy and have a positive attitude
  5. I work hard and challenge myself

Children are awarded ‘certificates’ for adhering to these statements which are presented in our special assembly each week.
