Vision, Values & Aims

Our Culture - The positive environment we create


Rosehill is a special place where everyone is valued and treated with dignity and respect. It is a place where we learn, care, enjoy and achieve success together. As a school, we are committed to and invest hugely in the mental health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff, and place great importance on promoting an inclusive culture and strong Learning Community.


We value and seek meaningful collaboration, which maximise opportunities to drive our schools’ vision and aims. Through our partnership working, we create a strong sense of community spirit, and promote awareness and understanding of Autism to further support our pupils to break down barriers, to excel and to lead fulfilling lives.


Our school motto is, ‘Caring about Learning, Learning about Caring’


Our Mission - What drives us every day


All children and young people are entitled to an education that enables them to make progress so that they achieve their best, become confident individuals living fulfilling lives and make a successful transition into adulthood.
