About Rossett Acre Primary School
At Rossett Acre Primary, we are a friendly and vibrant school. We focus on purposeful learning which encourages children to be independent, inquisitive and enterprising, preparing them for life now and in the future. We are a community where we want the very best education for all our pupils.
We are a large, successful two-form entry primary school on the south side of Harrogate. Our standards are high; we strive to continue to raise these, and support every child in meeting their full potential. There are fourteen classes at present (two in each year group). The School was built in 1970 and has had extensions to the main building since then. It benefits from two playgrounds and a playing field as well as being an attractive site. Our School Aims and Ethos: We encourage our children to be: • Caring • Independent • Self-motivated • Responsible Leading to happy, healthy individuals striving to be the best they can. Each child is expected to do their best, at the level appropriate to their needs. No child is better or worse; each child brings their best to the task and is encouraged to respect that fact. High self-esteem is encouraged in all pupils. The basic ethos of the school is to respect every individual in this environment, respect is given to everyone who works in school. Praise is given for excellence at the level of individual achievement, not on a comparative measure against others. Individual needs and their identification are part of the whole school curriculum policy. We are a member of the “Red Kite Teaching School Alliance” which includes six leading secondary schools as strategic partners as well as four universities, a special school and thirty-five primaries. As such this gives opportunities for our staff to access outstanding professional learning.
