‘Empowering every individual as they learn and grow through God’s love’.
At Rockbeare C of E Primary School, all children will become fluent readers and writers. Our ambition is that they will be empowered to articulate their love of learning, be independent, self-motivated and curious.
Rockbeare Primary School holds weekly formal standards & progress meetings in order to develop the school's teaching programmes, monitor progress and share expertise. Being a small school means our knowledge of children's particular academic, physical, social and personal needs are recognised and nurtured. The staff takes part in regular professional development through the First Federation Trust, Clyst Vale Learning Community and Devon Curriculum Services. We pride ourselves at Rockbeare on promoting high academic standards in a supportive friendly atmosphere
Across the Federation, schools are reviewing and revising curriculum planning. At Rockbeare, staff plan a long-term two-year rolling programme, from which termly medium-term plans are planned. These are then broken down into the weekly teaching programme. The long-term plan is under constant review as circumstances change. An overview of the individual medium-term plans for each class can be found on the class page under the 'Children' tab.
In Key Stage 1, children follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme daily.
2year LTP rolling programme 2019-2021
Transition days take place towards the end of the summer term, prior to your child joining our Foundation Stage. The class teacher holds an informal meeting with new parents, explaining how the Foundation Stage works, the learning which will take place and our expectations.
When your child leaves Rockbeare at the end of Year 6, they have a programme of induction and liaison with their prospective secondary school during the summer term. Children from Rockbeare move on to Clyst Vale Community College, Cranbrook Education Campus, The Kings School or Colyton Grammar.
Safe practice in ICT
The school follows the health and safety recommendations made by Devon County Council in its publication "Computers in Educational Establishments". Health and safety awareness forms an integral part of pupils' learning in ICT.
The school implements policies for acceptable use of the Internet and email as recommended in Devon County Council documents. Pupils are shielded from inappropriate materials on the Internet by means of the filtered router provided by Eclipse as part of the Information Devon service, or SWGfL
In Key Stage 2, children in Years 3,4, 5 and 6 have an intensive six week block of lessons during the Summer term at Honiton swimming pool, in line with Local Authority P.E. guidelines.
Please talk to your child's teacher or the school direct (see Contact Us tab) if you would like to find out more about our curriculum.
