At Rotherfield our staff are passionately committed to growing your child’s future in partnership with you as parents. Rotherfield aims to grow children’s futures through providing a high quality education, where every child achieves their full potential.
We have been working on a classroom refurbishment programme, which is now complete. All rooms have bespoke storage walls, new interactive screens, wifi capability, bespoke furniture and matting. This means our classrooms are great places to learn! We have a refurbished Sports Hall, a beautiful performing arts space with tiered seating, a computing suite, and a Music/Arts Studio. Our dining hall has been refurbished to make an inspirational place for eating: round social tables, and artwork related to our menu on the walls.
The school provides an inspirational learning environment for children, demonstrating our high expectations of what they can achieve.
We have a new multi use games area outside too!
The average class size at Rotherfield is 23. Almost like a private school!
Our children are lucky to have 4 specialist staff working with them every week. Specialists like ours are only usually available in private schools, but through working in partnership with Newington Green we can share the cost of such amazing specialist staff.
We offer specialist teaching in computing, music, PE and Spanish. The quality of this teaching has been observed as outstanding by School Improvement Professionals.
We believe our children should have access to all the opportunities that are available to other children! We have designed our out and about programme so that by the time children leave us in Y6 they would have had a rich experience of cultural trips and visits throughout their time at Rotherfield. For example trips to the opera, ballet, residential outward bound trips, museums, galleries, sports venues etc.
Free for all pupils, cooked onsite from scratch, using local ingredients, and linked to what the children are learning in lessons...what is not to love?
Our food offering is exceptional compared to other local schools. We offer breakfast, lunch and after school hot meals, with the lunch offer being free to all pupils. Our menu will be created by the children's food panel and our Chef, Emma. It is linked to what we are learning about in school, is locally sourced and is designed to be as seasonal as possible, helping our planet.
We are very proud of our childcare offer which supports our families into employment and provides parents the reassurance of high quality care for an elongated day when they are at work. Our programme compliments our rich curriculum, and the quality of provision is monitored by the leadership team on a regular basis.
