What Makes Us Special?
There are some very unique and special things about Rotherfield…
Stunning learning environment for children
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.
The school provides an inspirational learning environment for children, demonstrating our high expectations of what they can achieve.
In summer 2021 we are working with Islington Council to refurbish our playground. There will be new surfacing and a new sports pitch.
Small class sizes
The average class size at Rotherfield is 23. Almost like a private school!
Subject Specialist staff
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.
Rotherfield out and about programme
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.
Our staff team are wonderful! Many visitors and parents over the years have commented on the commitment and warmth of staff. Our school staff work as a team to deliver the very best education for your children. You will find us friendly, funny and united in that aim!
