We are delighted that our examination results at both Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 are well above national and county averages and our statistics show very good added value to our students’ Key Stage 2 achievements. Equally, we are delighted with the wide range of extracurricular activities available for our students and the wider community and for the part our students play in the development of all our new initiatives. If you would like to visit the college, please do not hesitate to contact one of our Reception staff so that a mutually convenient time can be arranged.

Our very supportive Governing Body is chaired by Mrs Penny Mergler. Included on the governing body are parent, staff, community, LA and foundation governors. In addition we have four student associate governors. Our Leadership Team consists of the Headteacher, the First Deputy Headteacher and three Deputy Headteachers as well as our Director of Business and Finance. Since September 2009, our extended leadership team has met on a monthly basis to initiate and review a number of college improvement projects and this team includes staff with

y it n u

whole college responsibilities and a student and parent representative. Many of our very well-qualified staff have additional responsibilities which include being leaders of teacher and student teams. Our students are extremely well supported by Higher Level Teaching Assistants in all subject areas and by Teaching Assistants who support a wide range of individual needs. We also employ two Student and Parent Support Managers, a Key-Stage Transition Coordinator, a college Learning Mentor and college Counsellor as well as utilising the services of a wide range

of multi-agency staff such as our Connexions Personal Adviser and local college Nurse. In addition, we have a large number of invaluable support staff who ensure the smooth administration of the college, buildings and grounds. And last, but not least, we have a thriving college Council and Year Councils and some extremely effective college Prefects who support the younger students – for example, as Form Prefects for Year 6 students on Welcome Day and throughout Year 7.

We have a number of strong partnerships in our local community. We work very closely with our nine partner primary schools known as The Roseland Network and we are in a number of Learning Partnerships with local secondary schools and Colleges of Further and Higher Education. From September 2009, the college became a member of the Truro and Roseland Educational Trust - with Penair and Pencalenick Schools in partnership with Truro and Penwith College and Cornwall Local Authority. The Trust aims to act as a strategic partnership that creates an integrated, cohesive continuum of sustainable educational opportunities for young people in the Truro and Roseland area. Many of our facilities are open to the public, especially The Roseland Community Sports Hall and our new eLearning Centre which is used, for example, by primary school homework clubs and for adult learning. We participate as a training college for the Cornwall School-Centred Initial Teacher Training programme for postgraduate trainee teachers.

In addition to delivering the National Curriculum, The Roseland Community College gained specialist college status for Music with English with effect from September 2006.

New projects as a result of Specialist status included refurbishment of the Main Hall to become The Performance Hall for the Roseland and the installation of Radio Roseland and a state-of-the-art media editing suite as well as increased Music Technology facilities in the Music Suite. Staffing increased to include a Music Development Officer, a Music and Theatre Technician and Higher Level Teaching Assistants for the Music and English Departments. Student opportunities are numerous and have included to date activities such as the Royal Opera House Project, workshops with Ballet Rambert, Media and Music Technology courses, participation in the Roseland Music Festival and a variety of workshops and master classes including, for example, with Rambert Dance Company and the Bournemouth Sinfonia.

Aims To build on our rich musical history and great strength in English in order to raise attainment further and enhance self-esteem in all subject areas for all. To develop more innovative ways to learn and teach, promoting creativity and students’ self-confidence and independence.

Another exciting development has been the creation of our state of the art radio studio with media editing suite. Students regularly broadcast from Radio Roseland and this valuable resource has proved a fantastic facility for the delivery of the Creative and Media National Diploma for which we are the lead school in the Truro and Roseland Learning Partnership.

Cr e ative Pro jec ts One example of the exciting opportunities resulting from Specialist School status is the visit made by the world-class Rambert Dance Company who worked with students on a ground-breaking music and dance project. The project was developed in partnership with the EMI Music Sound Foundation, the country’s largest sponsor of Specialist Performing Arts Colleges. The Rambert practitioners delivered two fantastic workshops, a Dance Workshop led by Dance Animateur Hayley Arundel, and a Music Workshop, led by Music Animateur Russell Hepplewhite. The song-based Music Workshop also formed part of the college’s new “Roseland Voices” programme of extra-curricular singing activities for young people, funded by “Youth Music”, the UK’s largest children’s music charity, through their “Vocalise” programme. Both workshops were based on Rambert’s production “Eternal Light”, choreographed by the Company’s Artistic Director Mark Baldwin to a new score by the composer and National Singing Ambassador, Howard Goodall. Students were able to explore themes from both the choreography and the musical score as they created their own songs and choreography inspired by “Eternal Light”. At the end of the day the dance and music workshops came together for a memorable joint performance.

A rts m a rk G o l d The college was awarded Artsmark Gold status for the second time in July 2009. All teachers and students, whatever the area of study, strive to achieve a creative approach to learning and teaching and a huge variety of cross-curricular and extra-curricular projects take place at the school.

Recent activities have included student participation in a multi-media Fashion Show, The Truro Combined Schools Music and Art Project and related Exhibitions at the Lander Gallery, Geevor Tin Mine and Eden Project, Carrick Dance, The Royal Opera House Project, The Roseland Summer Concert, The Roseland Samba and Steel Bands, Creative and Media Club and the Drama and Creative Arts Evening – not to mention creating a wildlife pond and the burgeoning of The Roseland Community Farm and new courses such as GCSE Dance, the Creative and Media Specialised Diploma and NVQ Level One courses in Animal Care, Horticulture and Conservation.

I want to work with animals when I leave school and this is a wonderful opportunity to get a qualification as well as having fun. Digging the wildlife pond was cool.

Th e Farm Sustainability

At The Roseland we recognise that environmental education is a crucial component in meeting the challenges associated with sustainable development. We aim to develop our students’ awareness and understanding of, and respect for, the environments in which they live, and secure their commitment to sustainable development at a personal, local, national and global level. We endeavour to do this through all curriculum areas. The Roseland is part of the Cornwall Five Rural Schools project and this has enabled us to develop resources in order to work towards the delivery of Land-based Operations. With capital bid for by the college, we have recently opened a brand new eco building for The Roseland Community Farm – currently inhabited by Shetland ponies, pygmy goats, orphan lambs, rabbits, chickens and guinea pigs. We have a poly tunnel and small organic garden as well as a wildlife pond created by our students during one of our Activities Weeks. A small wind turbine has been operational since September 2008 and a student focus group is involved in developing parts of the college grounds for student relaxation. We also have an active recyling group and Environment Club. In 2009, students working on the farm ate their first lunch made entirely of organic produce grown on the farm. Our ‘field to plate’ project is led by Mrs Wendy Lloyd, Environment Coordinator and Mrs Teresa Southworth, Environment HLTA. Our students have created a peaceful Memorial Garden in the centre of the college as a place of quiet reflection and one of our recent major fundraising activities, led by a student then in Year 9, enabled the construction of a beautiful Thai fishing boat named ‘The Roselander’ as part of a posttsunami village reconstruction project.

A ct i vities & Clubs A wide range of clubs and activities takes place over the college year. Sports teams and inter-college and county fixtures operate for a variety of games including netball, hockey, football, rugby, cricket, tennis and athletics. Students take part in the annual Carrick Dance performances at the Hall for Cornwall and a variety of different sports clubs take place at lunchtime and after the college day, led by sports coaches and members of the PE Department.

A homework club, supervised by our eLearning Centre Facilitator, takes place in the eLearning Centre after college each day and this facility is also used by our partner primary schools. There are also a number of coursework clinics and revision classes for GCSE students after college at appropriate times of the year. At different times of the year a number of activities take place such as Super Science Days, Gifted and Talented Maths, college Magazine Club and a Debating Club operates which competes from time

to time with students from partner secondary schools. In addition to this is the Creative Media Club, Radio Roseland and a whole host of Music/Drama/Textiles/Art/Dance activities throughout the year. The community diary gives details of all clubs and events each week – it can be found at the end of the weekly bulletin which is available from the front page of the website (www.theroseland.co.uk). In addition to these are a variety of international visits and exchanges such as the visits to Barcelona and Paris or the Austrian Ski Trip and

summer visit to Kenya. The Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme operates as an option at Key Stage 4 along with the Junior Sports Leadership Award and Young Arts Leadership Award. Activities Week takes place for Years 7 – 9 in July. The range of activities has included Alpine Adventure, Capital Experience, Outward Bound, Water Sports, Scilly Camp, Walk on the Wild Side, Face Painting and many more. Year 10 students may also opt to participate in a second week of Work Experience if they wish.

The Roseland Community Sports Centre opened in July 2006 and has greatly enhanced the sporting facilities available to Roseland students, to our partner primary schools and to the local community. The PE Department has two full time members of teaching staff, three parttime staff, a higher level teaching assistant and sports coaches who assist with lessons and college teams. Facilities include a gym, two sports fields and four tennis courts as well as the new Sports Centre. As well as PE lessons during the day, a range of activities take place out of lesson times and during the holidays for students and adults alike. The activities are coordinated Mr Andy Ashwin, our Head of PE and a programme of activities is circulated to students and parents each term. For further information, Andy can be contacted at the college on 01872 530583. Evening/holiday activities to date have included (for young people and/or adults) five-aside football, basketball, netball, gig rowing training, badminton, judo, cricket ball skills, trampolining, yoga, salsa, aerobics and pilates.

One of these is the very successful Leading Edge partnership with Penair School (Science Specialist School), Richard Lander School (Technology Specialist School), Truro College (Further and Higher Education) and Pencalenick Special School (Communication and Interaction Specialist School). We have participated in a number of innovative joint ventures which have included the development of Key Stage 2/3 Transition, extending the teaching of Modern Foreign Languages in partner primary schools and achieving Dyslexia and Inclusion Quality Mark. Current projects include, for example, supporting each other in tackling in-school variation, engaging parents in learning and the joint delivery of the new 14-19 Specialised Diplomas.

R o s el a nd Netwo rk Currently chaired by one of our Primary Headteachers, The Roseland Network is the working partnership of The Roseland Community College and our nine partner primary schools: Probus CPS, Tregony CPS, Gorran School, Ladock CPS, Gerrans School, St Mawes CPS, Veryan CEVAPS, Grampound with Creed CEPS and Grampound Road CEPS. One of our aims is to ensure an effective and supported transition from primary to secondary school but we work together on a wide range of developmental projects for raising attainment, celebrating achievement and, with the Truro and Roseland Learning Community, establishing extended services for the children in our mutual care..

Enjo y an d Achi ev e The Roseland Community College aims to make learning an exciting and enjoyable experience for the students from their first contact through Open Evening and Welcome Day while they are still in Year 6, right through to Year 11 when they take their GCSEs. In addition to the core curriculum there are opportunities to access a large number of extra-curricular activities. Recent exciting additions to the curriculum include The Roseland Farm and new National Diploma courses in Creative and Media (led by The Roseland) and Health, Society and Development (led by Penair School).

S ta y S a fe At The Roseland students have access to a wide range of support facilities to enable them to stay safe, including clear policies on Anti-Bullying procedures, Sex and Relationships, Child Protection and Behaviour for Learning which are summarised and clearly displayed in all classrooms. In addition to their Tutors, Learning Leaders and Student Support Managers, Mrs Nikki Mitchell and Mrs Hannah Thame, students can seek advice and help from the Learning Mentor, Mrs Jean Martin, the College Counsellor, Ms Lisa Nel and the First Aider and Student Support worker, Mrs Amanda Torr. Students aged 14 and over can also self-refer to the Connexions Personal Adviser, Mr Martin Grigg and make use of the Green Card Scheme that gives access to the Tregony doctors’ surgery for confidential health advice. Parents not wishing their child to access these confidential services should inform Mr Martin White, Deputy Headteacher. Mr Gary Henderson (Deputy Headteacher) has strategic responsibility for ICT and ensures that guidance for the safe use of the internet in the college is fully implemented.

The Roseland students’ contribution runs throughout the life of the college and into the wider community. Student Voice is heard through the Learning Detectives who contribute to teaching and learning issues. It drives any new building initiatives such as the eLearning Centre for which the students designed the wonderful internal décor, layout and art work.

Students have an input into policy making such as the Anti-Bullying Policy and sit on the Curriculum Review Group. The Student Council plays a crucial role in the appointment of new staff, subjecting candidates to a high-quality, searching interview as part of the selection process. Fundraising for a variety of causes is an ongoing feature of college life, with large amounts being raised through non-uniform days, fetes and sponsored

events for causes such as the Haiti and Precious Lives Appeals which raised in excess of £2500. In 2010/11 students supported our senior students taking part in community projects in Uganda and Kenya and also raised funds for other chosen causes such as Help for Heroes. The students’ most recent challenge has been to contribute to the design of the new Dining Hall due for completion in October 2011 and incorporating flexible learning spaces

Students at the Roseland Community College have plenty of opportunities to experience the world of work through a number of days working on Wider Key Skills when, helped by outside agencies, small groups come up with marketing ideas and learn the skills needed to develop them. Young Enterprise students sell their products at exhibitions outside the college. All students organise a work experience placement for one or two weeks and some students have ongoing placements for one day a week. Careers advice is ongoing through PSHE/C and Connexions and some Year 10 and 11 students engage in vocational courses at The Roseland or at Truro or Cornwall College. Above - students, staff and former staff join forces in a whole school fund raising effort for Precious Lives.
