At Rowdeford we want all pupils to experience a broad and balanced values-based curriculum which will allow them to develop their skills and knowledge and enable them to be successful in whatever they choose to do.
We place great emphasis on Literacy, Numeracy and Life Management, but value all subjects in helping to develop all our pupils skills and knowledge, including Personal, Social, Health and Religious Education (PSHRE), Citizenship, Computing, Science, Dance, PE, Art, Music, Cooking and Nutrition, Design and Technology, French, Geography, History and RE.
In addition, at Key Stage 4, pupils have the chance to undertake a work experience placement (in Year 11) and access Horticulture, the ASDAN Youth Award and Duke of Edinburgh.
We also enhance the curriculum, wherever possible, with theme days where specialists come into school to share their expertise with the children. In the past, these have included Indian dance, poetry and drumming. Pupils also get the opportunity to attend residential activities. An outdoor activity week is offered in Year 8 (usually at Pencelli in the Brecon Beacons) which involves many activities including rock climbing, abseiling, canoeing and orienteering and, subject to demand, a trip to France during Key Stage 4.
We are a forward looking school and are always looking towards innovative ways to further improve the curriculum experience for our young people.
