Welcome to the Rosewood Downs Primary School Website. We are a community that values research and is dedicated to ensuring that every decision we make contributes to the best possible outcomes for our students.                                                                                                                      

Our vision at Rosewood Downs is clear: we aspire for every student to leave in Year 6 with the same enthusiasm and passion for learning as they had when they first entered in Prep. To achieve this, our unwavering focus is on literacy and numeracy, coupled with high-level problem-solving skills.

In the realm of literacy, we proudly implement the UFLI phonics program, a research-backed approach that builds decoding reading skills. This complements our knowledge-rich curriculum, designed to enhance students’ vocabulary and background knowledge in the humanities and sciences, ensuring comprehensive reading comprehension.

In the field of mathematics, we draw upon the insights of cognitive science to structure our teaching methods. We understand the importance of spaced retrieval of information to build long-term memory, promoting a solid foundation for mathematical understanding.

Our commitment to holistic student development extends beyond academics. Through the Think Plus program, our students gain insights into their brains and cultivate a growth mindset, fostering resilience and adaptability.

Rosewood Downs Primary School proudly operates as a SWPBS (School-Wide Positive Behaviour Support) school, setting high expectations for our students. We believe in holding our students accountable for their actions while providing the support and guidance needed to develop them into the most successful young individuals they can be.

As we embark on another academic year, let us work together to create an environment where curiosity thrives, challenges are met with resilience, and each student’s potential is unlocked. Thank you for entrusting us with the education and growth of your child.

Warm regards,

Jordan Warren
