Welcome to Rowdeford School

Rowdeford is a very special school.  It is an open school and you are welcome to visit us at any time.  We pride ourselves on our warm, caring, supportive and happy atmosphere.

Rowdeford School is special because:

  • We focus on the individual needs of each pupil
  • We have an expert, experienced and dedicated staff team
  • We have a Values-Based curriculum.
  • We provide high quality learning and teaching opportunities, including Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC)
  • Our main aim is to raise our pupils' self confidence and self-esteem
  • We have regular and routine contact with Educational Psychologists, Speech and Language, Physio and other therapists, the Connexions service, other professionals and work experience providers.
  • We are a Specialist School for pupils with Communication and Interaction difficulties, with all the additional resources, staffing and expertise, which this specialist status brings.

The School was judged to be 'Good' under the new Ofsted inspection framework in October 2016, Residential care was judged 'Good' at the same time. 

We hope that you enjoy looking at our website and would welcome any feedback.  We can assure you that if you then decide to visit Rowdeford you will not be disappointed!
