Welcome to
Rowsley C of E Primary School

We are a busy and friendly Christian school, with lots going on. This website aims to give you a taster of the school, as well as providing regular updated information for both parents and pupils.



  • The staff are wonderful, kind and caring to all the children and parents. The classrooms are fun and inviting with work and pictures of the children everywhere. My child strives to do work that will be put up on display. The staff set goals that my child wants to work towards and is proud when he reaches them.

  • Community spirit, team work and mental health care for all

  • Communication and behaviour management are fabulous. All staff members appear to work as a strong team and my child has come on tremendously since he started last year! Thank you.

  • Friendly and supportive staff - they really seem to care. Great community atmosphere. Everyone feels involved. It has a lovely family atmosphere.

  • Rowsley is a wonderful community school which adds a personal touch. The staff clearly care about all the children's wellbeing. They are always available for advice on a personal level. I cannot fault anything about the school. Thank you for making my child's school such a happy place.

  • I think that it’s very clear what is required of both the children in terms of their learning and behaviour and how we as parents can support that. If I have ever had a question and emailed my child’s teacher, we have had a response that day. We love how approachable every single teacher in this school is and my child thrives in this environment. It’s a real community vibe, it’s friendly, caring and welcoming. The core values of this school are wonderful and it’s evident that they are instilled in the children.

  • Friendly and happy teachers, I feel they go above and beyond to meet and encourage every child.

  • Friendly environment, beautiful location, caring ethos, good results, my child is happy
