We aim to ensure that each child reaches maximum potential.
We aim to provide a happy, stable and purposeful environment.
We aim to ensure that each child develops awareness, respect and appreciation of themselves as a unique individual.
We aim to develop in children an awareness of the needs of others and respect for them.
We aim to ensure that each child develops awareness and respect for other cultures.
We aim to share our plans, procedures and aims with parents and with our community.

We aim to ensure a happy confident transfer of children to the Junior school.
We believe that this, the first introduction children have to education is vitally important as it develops attitudes and behaviour that last throughout life.

Here at Roseberry Infant School we provide a good, broad and balanced curriculum following the New National Curriculum which was introduced September 2000.
Here at Roseberry Infant School we teach Core-curriculum subjects in:
We teach a full literacy hour and numeracy lesson each day.
Teaching organisation in classrooms varies according to the particular activities. This ranges from individual tuition, to group work and whole class activities depending upon specific needs of the children and the planned activity. Some setting according to ability also takes place. Class sizes vary depending on the intake, as does the need to teach mixed age groups.
The teaching of ICT takes place in our ICT suite.
The hours spent on teaching children aged 5 - 7 years during a normal school week are 21 hours minimum. This time includes Religious Education but excludes the statutory act of collective worship, registration time, lunch and play time.
All children from Reception to Year 2 are taught all of the core and foundation subjects
All children are encouraged to work to their maximum ability. If a child has particular abilities these are encouraged and developed through the school and classroom provision.
We also encourage through the delivery of the National Curriculum education in personal relationships, drugs education, community responsibility, social and health education and equal opportunities.
