▪ Grampound Road, Grampound-with-Creed, St Mawes and Veryan primary schools will attend on Tuesday 19 June. A bus will collect the students from their primary schools at 8.30am and return them to their school after lunch by 1.00pm.

If your child is in Year 5 and not currently attending one of our partner primaries, you are warmly invited to attend on Tuesday, 19 June. In order for us to meet your individual needs, please email our Transition Co-ordinator, Miss McWilliams, on email@example.com, with the details indicated at the bottom of this letter. Each year we successfully enrol a number of students from across Cornwall and if you would like to find out more please get in touch. It is very important for your child to feel at ease about his or her new school from the start of the process and great care will be taken to ensure their happiness and smooth transition to secondary school. Our taster days are an important part of this and will allow your child to join in lessons and learning activities with our students and staff. It will also give them the chance to form new friendships with students from other primary schools. All children will be offered a complimentary lunch from our Dining Hall. However, if your child would prefer a packed lunch please also indicate this on the tear off slip below.

We are also pleased to invite prospective parents and students to our Open Evening on Tuesday 25 September from 6.00- 8.00pm. We hope to give you a brief ‘taste’ of what will be on offer for your child if you choose our school. Activities will be in the form of displays of work, resources, interactive sessions and experiments and much, much more. Students and parents will also be able to explore the school, either with a student guide or your child may be able to take you around themselves as they will be familiar with the school following the Year 5 taster morning. If you have any questions regarding our Year 5 taster days, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
To Parent(s) / Carer(s) of
Students in Year 9 at The Roseland Academy
Dear Parent(s) / Carer(s)
Year 9 Options 2018
As you will recall, in March we started the Key Stage 4 options process with our Year 9 students when we released the initial ‘straw poll’ forms. This process will culminate this half term when students make their final choices for the courses they will take at GCSE or BTEC level when they start Year 10 in September.
You are warmly invited to attend the next stage of the process, our Key Stage 4 options evening on Thursday 26 April at 6:30pm. Parents and students will have the opportunity to discuss GCSE/BTEC option courses in detail with subject teachers. We strongly recommend that all students attend this event with their parent(s)/carer(s). On the evening, we will also release our options booklet which outlines the curriculum structure in Key Stage 4, gives advice on how to make the right choices and provides information about the content of each course.
Following the options evening, the final options form will be released to students on the morning of Friday 27 April. The final deadline for handing in completed options forms will be two weeks later, Friday 11 May.
It is anticipated that students’ options choices will be confirmed before the May half term.
Prior to the deadline for the Options Form, Year 9 teacher reports will be published on Monday 23 April and there will be a further opportunity to meet staff at the Year 9 Parents’ Evening on Tuesday 8 May 4.00-6:30pm. A letter detailing how to book appointments through the online system will be given to students prior to the evening.
If you have any questions or queries about the process please do not hesitate to contact me via email, firstname.lastname@example.org. I will also be available throughout the Options Evening.
To those who have not yet responded, if your son/daughter would like to attend any sessions over Easter, please e-mail the member of staff running that session – e-mail addresses below.

This year’s collaborative art exhibition involving various schools in the Truro area is entitled ‘Gathering STEAM’ and is inspired by Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. Following a series of art workshops based on this theme, the exhibition will feature a wide range of exciting artwork produced by Roseland Year 9 students, including photography, printmaking, graffitti collage, and glass.
Invitation to Year 9 Parents
To celebrate the opening of this art exhibition a Private View will be held at the Royal Cornwall Museum in River Street, Truro on Monday 26th March, 6pm – 8pm.
All Year 9 students and their families are cordially invited to attend this celebratory event and see the fantastic artwork on display in this prestigious local venue – we look forward to seeing you there!
The schools exhibition will then remain open to the public between 27th March to 26th April during museum opening hours (10am – 4pm Tuesday to Sunday, closed on Mondays) so everyone is welcome to drop in over the Easter break!
A number of teachers have posted tasks for Y11 to complete at home. Please check the school facebook page for these messages.
The Y9 exams that were scheduled today will be rolled to next Monday 26 March. The remainder of this week will run as planned, weather permitting.
Due to current road conditions across The Roseland Academy catchment, the school will be closed on Monday 19 March. This has been a difficult decision to make, but following reports from a number of our villages, the road conditions are unsafe for transport to school.
