Vision & Values
Vision and Values
At Sir Roger Manwood’s School we aim to provide a broad curriculum which is balanced, relevant, enjoyable and challenging to all pupils. It is a core belief of the school that all individuals are equally valued and that everyone treats one another with mutual respect .
The school enjoys high standards of behaviour from its students and a strong sense of loyalty to the school. The students have many opportunities to develop skills and personal qualities, both in the formal curriculum and in the extra-curricular life of the school, that will serve them well in their future lives. We also seek to provide a caring community which encourages concern and respect for the welfare of others
The school places great emphasis through the pastoral system of Form Tutors, Year Heads, SENCO and Deputy Head Pastoral upon promoting the welfare and personal development of all pupils. Parents and students can contact staff at any time and there are well-developed procedures in place.
The school works hard to make sure that all pupils can find somebody to approach to discuss a matter of concern - staff in pastoral roles might be the obvious choice but all staff make themselves available and are approachable
There are also senior staff who have student welfare as part of their core duties. Sixth Formers are encouraged to help in a number of areas with Junior classes and a ‘buddying’ system operates in Years 7 and 8. Sixth formers also act as Area Prefects and School Prefects. In addition we welcome the input from the School Nurse and also can call upon the services of outside Counsellors.
