Situated in Coseley, Rosewood School caters for pupils aged between eleven and sixteen. The pupils are at Rosewood for a wide variety of reasons, including SEMH and ASD. Many have experienced a disrupted education which mean they find conventional schooling difficult. At Rosewood we provide small group teaching with an emphasis on socialisation skills designed to help each pupil make progress. We aim to add value to all of our pupils whatever their learning needs.
Our school thrives on effective relationships based on mutual respect. Our prime aim is to offer pupils the chance of success through education and to instill a love of learning. We hope that by building trust and offering a curriculum rich in diverse experiences, we can give them an equal opportunity in the wider world.
We have a skilled and committed staff who work together to provide an education second to none. In the DfE tables for progress, we are in the top five in the country for a school of our type. This is something we are extremely proud of and shows our commitment to excellence.
We offer a broad spectrum of help, ranging from therapeutic care to GCSEs in at least 8 subjects. An Educational Psychologist visits weekly to support pupil’s needs. The school works closely with Social Care and many other outside agencies including CAMHS, Connections, Speech and Language Therapists and including Learning Support.
Pupils have access to a large playing field, hall and fully equipped rooms for Science, ICT, Food Technology, and DT. Through excellent community links pupils have also enjoyed Judo, weight training, rock climbing, camping, gymnastics, theatre visits and swimming at local venues.
Every year pupils are offered a residential visit. This type of activity helps to develop the social skills, necessary for any child. We maintain close links with other secondary schools not only founded on curriculum issues, but also to share expertise and encourage inclusion through inter-school activities.
We are committed to safeguarding and have well trained staff in all areas of Child Protection and Health and Safety.
In January 2017 Ofsted described Rosewood as a good school. We think Rosewood is a great school and we work constantly to improve our practice. We are proud of our school, proud of our pupils, proud of our staff and deeply thankful to all those stakeholders who support us in many different ways.
