A Safe and Exciting Learning Environment


Our Vision is to provide a safe, exciting learning environment which allows our children to aspire to be the

“best that they can be” and we help them to achieve this by providing opportunities for them to have high aspirations both for themselves and their future, through a broad and balanced curriculum where children become ‘leaders of learning’. We achieve this by instilling our children with the values and characteristics needed to be lifelong learners who are independent and prepared for the future. Our focus on Aspiration and Achievement is key and this is achieved through exploration of our core values:

Independence, Respect, Inquisitiveness, Kindness, Ambition, Resilience, Confidence and Equality


Welcome

Welcome to Royal Rise Primary School, where providing an outstanding curriculum that enables all our children to achieve and succeed is at the centre of everything that we do. We are a warm and friendly one form entry school in the heart of our community and are extremely proud of our children, our school and our successes. We have dedicated, caring and enthusiastic staff who support the children’s learning. Our Governing body and PTA are an integral part of our school and work with us to ensure that the best possible education and opportunities are available to all. Our curriculum is a fun and engaging journey where children have the opportunity to lead and drive their own learning forward. This gives them the skills, characteristics and confidence needed to succeed in the wider world. We are also very proud to be part of Cygnus Academies Trust, and the valuable opportunities it offers for our staff and children to work together across our partner schools.


Teaching and Learning

Teaching and learning is at the centre of what we do and we are passionate about children reaching their full potential. It is our strong belief that children should be active learners. This means that we actively encourage children to learn through first-hand experiences wherever possible with a variety of age appropriate environments and experiences. We structure the curriculum for our youngest children within the Foundation Stage, based on their interests and the skills that they need to develop. As the children move through the school this emphasis on skills development and exploration continues through the way the curriculum is structured. This enables the children to learn the knowledge and skills needed in the wider world and use them through a range of real life contexts.


ACE Curriculum

Healthy Schools

The ultimate aim is for pupils to independently lead their learning throughout the adventure.

There are a selection of activities that promote health and fitness both within and beyond the school day.

Through ACE (Apprenticeships Creating Enterprise) adventures we offer a broad and balanced curriculum based on issues which meet the relevant needs of our children and are used to deliver our aims of; high aspirations, team work, real life connections, excellent levels of communication, problem solving skills, building community relations, resilience and pride.

As part of our healthy schools programme we encourage children to make healthy choices both in what they eat and how they exercise. Our Reception children have daily access to a range of healthy snacks. Our children are offered a range of fruit in Key Stage 1 and are encouraged to continue this into Key Stage 2. There are a selection of activities that promote health and fitness both within and beyond the school day. We also encourage families to walk to school on a regular basis.

Our curriculum helps children to experience and understand the skills and knowledge needed to succeed in the ‘real’ world. During an ACE adventure children will work ideally in groups of six to establish defined roles, responsibilities and expected outcomes. They will lead their learning through discussion and reasoning in order to complete a product that supports the challenge question during their adventure. An ACE adventure is the culmination of the term’s teaching and will build on the knowledge and skills that children have learnt throughout the term as well as all their previous learning. It is an opportunity for them to demonstrate their mastery of skills through reasoning, speaking, listening and problem solving.


Enrichment

As part of our commitment to inspiring children and developing a well-rounded individual, at Royal Rise we provide a range of activities that enable children to explore a variety of cultural experiences; from music and singing lessons to visits to museums. We believe that children thrive on opportunities and team work, we therefore offer a wide range of sporting activities including, football, rugby and netball. We have teams that represent the school who play locally against other schools. These opportunities ensure that our children have the experiences and opportunities to use their skills and also encourage high aspirations for success and future potential.

Your Involvement

Royal Rise Primary School strongly believes that parental involvement is an essential part in a child’s experience of a positive and rewarding primary education. We have a friendly ‘open door’ policy and welcome parents and carers into school regularly so that parents can see what learning and progress their child is making. Positive communication links are vital to maximise children’s learning. We have regular parent consultation meetings throughout the year and send out termly reports to provide timely and relevant information about the children’s progress and attainment. There is an expectation that parents agree to our home school agreement in supporting their child whilst at Royal Rise. The PTA (Parents and Teachers Association) of Royal Rise are a key part in helping to raise funds to support the school and all parents are welcomed and invited to be a part of our PTA.


You are welcome to visit our school and meet our school family. Come and see us in action. We encourage you to visit so that you can see learning as it happens first hand. Visits can be arranged by contacting the school office, or come and join us at one of our open days. Children can join our Reception class the September after their fourth birthday. Applications must be submitted by the December prior to the September that your child is due to start school. Royal Rise follows Kent County Council’s admissions policy and places will be allocated following the agreed admissions policy.
