School Ethos and Values

Our prospectus as found in the sidebar of the page describes our Ethos and Values:

At Rothersthorpe School general and specific skills are acquired; knowledge and understanding developed; positive attitudes and personal and social attributes encouraged.

We aim to provide a broad, balanced, relevant education for all our children.

We aim to help children to develop lively, enquiring minds and to develop independence.

We aim to achieve this in a structured, happy, stimulating Christian environment.

The ethos of our school is to help all children to develop respect for themselves and each other, to become increasingly responsible for their own actions and to be aware of and sensitive to the needs of others.

Besides a respect for persons, all members of the school community are encouraged to share a respect for property, to have a strong sense of right and wrong and to have a caring attitude for the world in which we live. The curriculum we offer is not merely academic, but embraces the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils.
