Inclusive and Caring Environment

When we ask our families to describe Rotherglen in one word, the most frequent answer is nurturing. Our schools are welcoming and our administrators, teachers and students reinforce an atmosphere that is calm, comfortable and reassuring.

A cohesive community like ours exists because it is rooted in common values that began when the school was founded by the Lanigan family, and continues to thrive today. Above all are mutual respect and an appreciation for individual differences and diversity.

In seeking to build and develop a strong and vibrant learning community, we recognise that people are our greatest asset and as a result our values are people-centred and humanitarian in nature.

At Rotherglen School, ethical behaviour and respect for students, staff and parents/guardians are reflected in our relationships, values, community life and code of conduct.

Rotherglen actively cultivates a culture of kindness and this is supported by our focused programming on character development and protected by our Code of Conduct. We promote positive values, attributes and behaviours — we don’t just teach them, we model them, set expectations, celebrate them and practice them, every day. We live our vision.

School Code of Conduct: Rotherglen promotes responsibility, respect, civility and academic excellence in a safe learning and teaching environment. A positive school climate exists when all members of the school community feel safe, comfortable and accepted.
