‘Dream Big and Fly High!’
At Rockbeare C of E Primary School, all children will become fluent readers, writers and mathematicians. Our ambition is that they will be empowered to articulate their love of learning, be independent, self-motivated and curious.
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 and Devon Curriculum Services. We pride ourselves at Rockbeare, on promoting high academic standards in a supportive friendly atmosphere where children flourish, aspire and achieve.
Across the Trust, 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 designed. These are then broken down into the weekly teaching programme. The long-term plan is under constant review as circumstances change. The plan for this year can be accessed below.
Long Term Plan 2022-23
EYFS Transition days take place towards the end of the summer term, prior to your child joining our Reception Class. 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. There will also be an opportunity for two Stay & Play sessions in the summer term, ahead of there start in September.
At Rockbeare, we recognise the need to support transition for all pupils from year group to year group, this will be personalised where needed and aims to provide each pupil with the best possible start in their new class each September. Where Personal Learning Plans are in place, these will be used under the guidance of the SENCO, to provide the additional transitional support required.
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 typically move on to Clyst Vale Community College, Cranbrook Education Campus, The Kings School or Colyton Grammar.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of your child's transition, please speak with the class teacher in the first instance.
