Rowanfield Junior School was last inspected in March 2020, where it received the grading of ‘Good’.
Pupils are proud to be part of Rowanfield Junior School. They throw themselves into everything on offer. Pupils behave well, and they have positive attitudes in class.
‘Pupils are thoughtful and caring to one another. They are safe. Pupils are very well looked after. They say that bullying happens rarely. Pupils say that when they do have a worry, or they fall in and out with friends, staff listen and help, whatever the circumstances.
Pupils learn about ‘big ideas’ and ‘life-changing experiences’, such as life as a refugee. Pupils particularly enjoy the wide-ranging experiences that teachers plan within and beyond the classroom. For example, virtual reality workshops, and subject-based theme weeks, like arts week, and science, technology and mathematics (STEM)activities.
Pupils learn a lot in reading, writing, and mathematics. Pupils are reading more now and enjoying it. Pupils are proud to use the ambitious vocabulary they learn, and they apply this in their writing well. However, pupils learn more in some subjects than others. This means that pupils do not retain the depth of knowledge they should in every subject.
Pupils learn about keeping mentally and physically fit and healthy, including drugs education. They enjoy trust-wide sports events. There are lots of clubs offering a range of activities for pupils to enjoy, such as gardening and cooking.’ Ofsted Report March 2020
