A Broad and Balanced Curriculum
A broad and balanced curriculum is on offer at Rose Hill Westonbirt School for all pupils from those in our Nursery through to those in Year 6.
We offer the full range of academic subjects, many of which are taught by specialist teachers, as well as a wide programme of extra-curricular activities. French, Music, Games, PE and Swimming are all delivered by specialist staff to children in Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. In addition, speciliast staff also teach Art, DT, Science, Geography and History to pupils in Years 3 to 6.
The full curriculum contains: English, Mathematics, Science, ICT, French, Geography, History, RE, PSHE, Art, Music, DT, Games, PE, Swimming and Outdoor Education.
Many of our pupils are identified as being gifted academically or talented in a particular field. We provide extra support and encouragement to these pupils, stimulating them further in their lessons and offering additional activities as well, such as a Maths Challenge competition, extra sketching classes or encouragement to play an additional instrument.
Special needs teaching
Learning Support: providing special educational needs
At Rose Hill Westonbirt School we are determined to ensure that every child achieves their full potential. We make particular provision for pupils with learning difficulties such as dyslexia, dyspraxia and mild attention disorders by providing extra support and individually planned programmes and exercises. This might take the form of weekly meetings or short booster sessions over a half term or a term.
Special educational needs in a public school
The Learning Support department consists of a Learning Support teacher (SENCo) together with Learning Support assistants (LSA’s).
We have a dedicated learning support room, the Beehive, where teachers can work with small groups or individual children depending on their needs.
We believe in developing a strong working partnership with parents and all those involved in a child’s well-being, including educational psychologists and other professionals. This is paramount in enabling children to participate fully in school life alongside their peers.
