Welcome from the Headteacher

Alice SimpsonA warm welcome to 
Rowde C of E Academy...

At Rowde C of E Primary Academy, we have a very special community with one clear ethos and vision: to nurture everyone in our school to, 'Learn, Grow and Love'. We believe that every member of our community can be supported and inspired to flourish. I could not be more proud to be Acting Head Teacher here, after being KS2 class teacher and Deputy Head Teacher. After some challenges in recent years, we continue to make marked improvements in teaching and learning. With an incredible team and community, Rowde is already a thriving school and, with support from Acorn Education Trust and our colleagues from the Diocese, we will continue to improve to ensure we are the school our special pupils deserve.

By attending Rowde, you become part of a family underpinned by love and kindness. Our core Christian values (respect, optimism, wisdom, determination, enthusiasm and love) represent who we are and we use our collective worship to connect and ensure we live these values daily. We are a happy and positive learning environment, with the highest expectations of behaviour and attainment. Our aim is that Rowde is just the beginning of an exciting, lifelong journey for our pupils, but where the crucial foundations are laid for their future success. We are committed to ensuring that every child can fulfil their true potential as a learner and as a member of the community; where the academic progress and emotional wellbeing of each individual is of paramount importance.

For the best possible outcomes for our pupils, I believe that we need to work in partnership and I hope you find the information on the website useful. This is just the beginning and I urge you not to take my word for it! Please get in touch: I am always happy to discuss your child's education with you and it would be a pleasure to show you our amazing site and meet our brilliant team. We are incredibly proud of our school and I would relish the opportunity to show you why.
