Our children found Rhyddings an enjoyable experience and, as a result, are developing into mature, knowledgeable adults. Quote from parent, Ofsted

Welcome to our family I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for taking the time to find out about the ‘family’ that is Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School. Our principal aim is to maximise the achievements of our students through an individually tailored programme of personalised learning. We also aim to inspire them through a variety of educational opportunities that will transform their potential. At Rhyddings, we believe in supporting each other to achieve success. We set each other challenging targets and encourage each other to attain and exceed those targets. We pride ourselves on our high

standards of teaching and learning, our high quality resources and our outstanding systems for care, guidance and support. We appreciate that every student is an individual, and that success comes in many forms. Consequently, we put great emphasis on celebrating each and every student’s achievements. I am very proud to lead Rhyddings as we increase our emphasis on personalisation of the curriculum and move into an exciting phase of Building Schools for the Future. I would like to invite you to contact the school to arrange a visit at any time. You can be sure of a warm welcome. Paul Trickett, Headteacher


Students receive the support and encouragement of a wide range of skilled staff, enabling them to develop into confident and mature individuals. They remain with their form tutors for five years, allowing them to benefit from a continuity of care and guidance. Every year group is led by a coordinator and a full-time, experienced mentor, who support and promote learning and achievement. The success of our students is celebrated regularly throughout the year.

The personal development and well-being of the students is outstanding and reflects the excellent arrangements for care, guidance and support. Ofsted

GOVERNORS’ CHARGING POLICY

Although there is no charge levied for educational visits that take place within school hours, it is anticipated that parents will continue to support the school with its broad range of curricular activities by donations for field trips and educational visits. Any parents, who feel that they are unable to provide this small amount of funding, should get in touch with the appropriate Co-ordinator of Student Development.

COMPLAINTS PROCEDURE In the unlikely event of a complaint being lodged against the school, it would be helpful if the following procedure could be adopted: Please contact the school either by person or by telephone and arrange an appointment with the Headteacher to discuss the matter. The Headteacher will attempt to meet you in person in order to clarify the situation. In the event of him not being available he will delegate the conduct of the meeting to his Deputy or to one of the senior staff of the school. Data Protection- Privacy Notices Under the Data Protection Act, all schools must inform parents and carers that they hold personal data about each student, how the data is used and who the data may be forwarded to. Accordingly, LCC have provided schools with a copy of the Privacy Notice which is available on the school’s web site www.rhyddings.lancs.sch.uk . Hard copies are available on request.


Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School Student Development & Guidance CARE OF YOUR CHILD The welfare of the students in Year 7-11 is the responsibility of the appropriate Co-ordinator of Student Development. Year 7 is organised in the same ways the other four years in school. When students come to Rhyddings they are placed in a Form Group which meets each day. Students stay with the same group and Form Tutor for their five years at the school, thus offering them a strong continuity of support. The Form Tutor is a key figure in the educational development and welfare of students and the first teacher they should turn to when needing information, advice or for sharing a problem. As with all staff, the main consideration of those involved in the academic development of students is to support and encourage them to achieve their full potential during their school career. Co-ordinators of Student Development, Learning Mentors the Deputy Head or Headteacher are available to discuss any matters of concern with parents. CHILD PROTECTION All staff working at Rhyddings Business & Enterprise School are familiar with and work within the guidance of the school’s Child Protection Policy. ATTENDANCE We believe that regular attendance is of crucial importance in terms of the continuity of education offered. Regular attendance at school is something to be proud of and each term, students receive a certificate for 100% attendance record. LINKS WITH JUNIOR SCHOOLS Rhyddings School has a long standing tradition of excellent links with local junior schools. We place a high priority on ensuring that everything is done to make a student’s transfer to secondary school as smooth as possible. A team of staff, led by the person in charge of primary liaison, visits junior schools regularly to discuss with the students any issues or concern prior to their transfer to secondary school. In order to enhance curriculum continuality, teachers from Rhyddings also discuss issues with the subject teachers in our local junior schools. Detailed academic and social records are completed by junior school colleagues and passed on to Rhyddings School to help ensure a ‘continuality of education is successfully achieved.’


COLLECTIVE WORSHIP The 1998 Educational Reform Act requires that all students attending a county school must take in daily collective worship. Worship is to be ‘wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character’ and should reflect the ‘broad traditions of Christian belief’. At the same time the school should take into account the general character of the family background of students as well as their ages and aptitudes. The act also allows schools to organise daily Collective Worship for the whole school or separate groups of students and at any time during the day. Rhyddings students usually meet for Collective Worship as a Year or Form group and they are encouraged to participate in and contribute to our Collective Worship which is planned to draw on a wide range of religious experiences and traditions. STATEMENT OF ROAD SAFETY POLICY Statistical evidence has consistently and clearly shown the vulnerability of the young and inexperienced road user. Road safety education is a learning process that involves developing a range of skills and knowledge that will enable children to become aware of, and competent in, the traffic environment. The school will actively support the development of positive attitudes towards road usage. This will be achieved through the integration of appropriate road safety themes and topics into the curriculum. In addition, efforts will be made to work in partnership with parents in order to further encourage safe practices on or near the road, through the provision of relevant publicity material and information. CAREERS EDUCATION AND GUIDANCE Careers education and guidance is a continuing process delivered across the school as part of the function of the Form Tutor/student relationship. We hold up to date information for the student/staff use in the Learning Resource Centre. The centre is opened daily and staffed by the manager. A discrete element of careers is introduced as part of the Citizenship programme throughout the school. Connexions provides a Personal Advisor who gives individual guidance interviews, undertakes group work in Citizenship lessons on careers topics and helps students make decisions by using the career interest guides. Connexions also supplies information on later educational opportunities, training and employment and continues this advice post 16. All students have the opportunity to participate in work experience during KS4. Outside speakers are encouraged to visit the school and students may also visit a variety of work places. We aim to equip our students to make the transition from school to adult life based on sound knowledge and understanding of what choices are, and to play a responsible and confident role within their families, at work and in adult life.


SEX EDUCATION Sex education forms part of the Health Education programme taught within Citizenship and additional information and support in this area may also be found in other areas of the curriculum. The school’s policy is to inform students accurately and develop the moral awareness and values to maintain a caring relationship, emphasising the value of family life. Wherever appropriate the help and advice of Health Service professionals such as the school nurse are used. We believe that it is an important part of the students’ development and a responsibility that may be shared with parents. SPECIAL NEEDS Rhyddings is committed to providing high quality educational experiences for all students including those with special educational needs and works closely with parents, carers, students, teachers and support agencies in order to fulfil this commitment. Copies of the school special educational needs policy which details the provision available at Rhyddings can be obtained on request. HOMEWORK Homework is used to support in school learning, increasingly these can be accessed on MOODLE, the schools Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). A school diary is also issued to every student and is used to record homework. We ask parents to check and sign diaries each week as these can also be used as an additional informal method of communication between school and home. Form tutors check students’ diaries during the week and deal with any comments that require action. There are numerous opportunities during the week to attend help sessions in the LRC and other areas. ENRICHMENT ACTIVITIES ‘Able, Gifted and Talented’ students are supported through a wide range of extension activities and a mentoring programme. In addition to the help sessions the are also a wide range of subjects, business, sport and performing arts activities after school which students are encouraged to join.

The Curriculum

Rhyddings Business and Enterprise School

All students are encouraged to reach their full potential and personal excellence is the goal set before them. Each student has individual talents and needs. Regular monitoring and assessment procedures are incorporated into the students’ personalised learning programme. The curriculum meets statutory guidance and offers a wide range of courses and subjects. It supports the spiritual, moral, cultural, mental and physical development of all students to prepare them for the opportunities, responsibilities and experiences of further education and adult life. THE CURRICULUM IN YEARS 7, 8 AND 9 The National Curriculum 2008 allows a more flexible and personalised approach to learning, which effectively means that subjects work in a more collaborative way, inspiring students to achieve further success For the first time in September 2009 Year 7 spent 10 out of 30 lessons in their own ‘Learning Zone.’ Here they followed a competency and skills based-curriculum designed to prepare them better for a life of learning. For the other 20 lessons they encountered a combination of the following subjects:Art and Design Citizenship Design Technology Drama English Language English Literature French Geography History

Information & Communication Technology Mathematics Music Physical Education Religious Education Science Spanish

From September 2010 the ‘Zone’ experience will move into Year 8 for 4 out of 30 lessons. This will build on the skills and competencies of becoming confident, personalised learners. THE CURRICULUM IN YEARS 10 AND 11 The core curriculum currently takes 60% of the week and consists of examination courses in English, ICT, Mathematics and Science plus statutory courses in Citizenship, Physical Education and Religious Education. The remaining 40% of time is used on option courses. Students are able to choose from a combination of the following subjects:Art and Design Beauty Therapy Business Studies Business Retail and Administration Construction Engineering French Geography Health and Social Care History

Media Studies Performing Arts Physical Education Religious Studies Additional Science Spanish A range of Technology subjects Travel and Tourism Urdu


There are also additional courses which are delivered in collaboration with partner secondary schools, through the Hyndburn Partnership.
