School Values / Ethos

Rolleston Vision Statement


We believe that every child at Rolleston should enjoy their education and be happy, successful and confident at school. We will value our children for their individuality, culture and heritage. We are committed to providing a place of excellence with high standards. 


Children will know how to learn as well as acquire knowledge. They will have the opportunity to achieve their full potential in their academic, creative, emotional and social, physical, moral and spiritual development. Learning will be recognised and celebrated by children and adults.


Children will have a great understanding on how to become well rounded members of society and to support well-being and mental health of themselves and others.


The learning experience and environment at Rolleston will be creative, challenging, exciting, stimulating, relevant and forward thinking.


Our school will always be a caring place where children and adults make a valuable contribution and are inspired to be creative, think for themselves and feel confident to meet new challenges.


Our children will respect themselves and others and have an understanding of their role in school and the wider community.


We believe effective partnerships between children, staff, parents, governors and the wider community are central to the success of our children.




At Rolleston, we ensure that we are constantly preparing our children for life in modern Britain by instilling the values of:




Rule of Law




There are regular assemblies based around these values - these values are reinforced through the school week during lessons, circle time and in the playground as part of our character development and they link beautifully with our SMSC offer and Route to Resilience approach.
