We hope you all enjoy our choice of activities!
Brand new learning spaces
After the summer, our building’s phase II has been inaugurated. Children are already enjoying a beautiful art room, a vast science laboratory and improvements for drama in our performance centre. Soon the different year groups around the school will be planting in their own vegetable garden
Primary pupils now have their own IT room with its Minecraft corner as well as an outside playing area.
As part of our commitment to instil on our pupils a healthy lifestyle, our Secondary students, have also just started enjoying our salad bar in the dining room.
As one of out new initiatives for this school year we have created a path of 530 steps around the school. Our children can now enjoy in an organised manner, as part of their healthy lifestyle education, a pleasant walk to start the school day or to reflect as they move around. We hope this initiative contributes to our extensive wellbeing programme.
Our art teacher, Mr Williams, has organised a creative exhibition called ´Paisajes Oníricos` which will be on show until 30 November 2022.
National Online Safety (NOS)
The online world is posing an ever-increasing risk to children, and it is important that schools, parents and carers work together to take an active role in teaching children about online dangers. Learning how to act safely when using the internet is an incredibly important part of children’s safeguarding.
We are therefore delighted to announce that RPS is committed to protecting our pupils online by working with National Online Safety, which provides resources for all parents. Very soon, our BLT (blended learning team) will be asking all parents to register and access all the helpful resources available.
KS3 & 4 welcome assembly with the CEO
As a fresh start to the school year, KS3&4 had a welcome assembly led by Mr Bird, Head of Secondary. Mr Shallcross, Director of Education, led a short session with the students focusing on personal development, after which our CEO, Mr González, joined to share some reflections for the new school year.
After an exercise to reflect about how fortunate we are to be part of our community, the assembly ended with all our Secondary students shaking hands in acceptance of their commitment to be respectful to each other.
