Our intention is to inspire young people to develop knowledge, skills, talents and character through a wide range of experiences; to use their curiosity and creativity to find ways of achieving their potential and to have the belief, drive and resilience to follow their dreams. Our pupils will be happy, confident and successful members of British society.
How the Big Curriculum is organised
The curriculum at Rolleston is split into 4 zones: the Discovery Zone, the Exploration Zone, the Expression Zone and the Mindfulness Zone.
Each of the subjects and aspect of your children's learning is categorised into one of these umbrella zones. The reason for this is so teachers, support staff and subject coordinators can work collegiately to ensure that our curriculum intent is delivered to your children. Teachers drew inspiration from an individual connected to their subjects to further clarify the focus and vision for their Curriculum Zone.
