The Rawmarsh Pledge will be at the very heart of the able aspect and empower students to be confident, well-rounded, enthusiastic, caring, happy, can-do people, ready for the wider world.

The Rawmarsh Way and the Rawmarsh Pledge develop personal skills and attributes and broaden our students horizons.

At Rawmarsh Community School we aim to send all young people into an ever changing world able and qualified to play their full part in it. The qualified aspect of this speaks for itself; we aim for our students to achieve strong qualifications that support them in their next steps of education, training or employment. 

Furthermore, a student who makes that commitment to the Rawmarsh Pledge will develop independence and self-discipline by augmenting their participation, performance, communication, creativity and cultural capital.

Why are we encouraging students to achieve pledges?

Why are Pledges important?

Key stage 3

At Key Stage 3, the Rawmarsh Pledges will be delivered as part of PHSE curriculum. Students will participate in bespoke Pledge lessons each half term as well as having the opportunity to discuss Pledge tasks with their teacher on a weekly basis.

It is the student’s responsibility to complete tasks in their own time and upload their evidence onto their Google Classroom when they feel they have successfully completed a task. This will be monitored by their PHSE teacher and HOY.

key stage 4

At Key stage 4 there is more emphasis on students taking responsibility and being self-motivated to complete tasks independently. Once They feel they have successfully completed all 4 tasks from one of the Pledge Categories they should arrange a meeting with their HOY/SPM to show them their evidence.
