Rotherfield Primary School
Rotherfield Primary School’s strengths lie in its caring and nurturing environment, dedicated staff and governors, and above all the determination of our pupils to succeed. We are currently celebrating our fantastic end of year results from July 2015, 100% of our Year 6 pupils left working at expected level, compared to a national average of 80%. Our Reception, phonics and Year 2 results were equally fantastic.
Over the last four years we have been exploring the option of expanding to become a one-form entry school. Thanks to the generosity of a local charity, during the summer of 2015 we embarked on an ambitious building project, which will allow us to open a seventh classroom in September 2016. Our school originally opened in 1867, so it is quite fitting that as we celebrate our 140th anniversary, we will also be celebrating our expansion.
We are a friendly, caring school with high expectations for all our pupils. Our children are encouraged to explore, discover and question through a range of exciting learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Our staff work hard to provide a safe, calm and stimulating environment where good behaviour and mutual respect is modelled by everyone and where everyone is valued.
