Our Vision and Ethos
Our vision for Rockland St Mary Primary and Nursery School and Surlingham Primary School is to encourage and support our pupils to enjoy their childhood and reach their full potential, as confident, inquisitive and successful learners and as fully rounded individuals.
Our small, caring communities and our inspiring environment, within the South Norfolk Broads, make a huge impact on our children’s development and our essential values. All members of our close knit school community work in a positive learning partnership, having regard to our 4 R’s-
Respect, Resilience, Resourcefulness. and Reach
Our learning environment is supportive and purposeful – but also stimulating, challenging and engaging with a clear focus on promoting positive behaviour and our principles for learning.
Children enjoy consistently high quality teaching through the broad, balanced and rich range of learning experiences and opportunities we provide both inside and outside the classroom, and particularly drawing inspiration from our Broads village environment.
This is underpinned by an ethos in which all individuals are valued and respected, and where our children flourish in a safe, calm, caring and enabling environment in which each child’s well being is paramount and their developing independence is encouraged and celebrated.
Children enjoy consistently high quality teaching through the broad, balanced and rich range of learning experiences and opportunities we provide, inside and outside the classroom, and particularly drawing inspiration from our Broads village environment. Our children will begin their preparation as responsible citizens who will be able to contribute to their society by gaining a firm foundation of core skills and knowledge and through the acquisition and application of our four fundamental principles.
