Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children’s Services and Skills. We inspect and regulate services that care for children and young people, and services providing education and skills for learners of all ages. Ofsted last inspected us in October 2022. They said:

There is a shared sense of pride about being part of ‘Team Rowner’. Leaders combine a strong sense of nurture with high expectations for pupils. Staff know the school community well and use this knowledge to create strong relationships. This allows all pupils to feel supported and achieve well. Families recognise the lengths leaders and staff go to. They too see themselves as part of ‘Team Rowner’. As one parent said: ‘Rowner Junior is one of the most caring and nurturing schools I know. The children are at the centre of everything they do. The opportunities available, not just within the school day, are second to none. It is more a way of life than a school.’

We are graded by Ofsted good school with elements of outstanding. The full report is below.
