Welcome to 

Rowanfield Infant School

Rowanfield Infant School enables children to feel valued, safe and inspired to learn.  An enriched and engaging curriculum encourages children to become independent learners and challenges them to achieve the very best outcomes. Within our nurturing environment children learn to value themselves and respect others as they grow into confident, fulfilled and responsible individuals. Welcoming families and local partners to support children’s learning is at the heart of our community school.
The new school vision was launched in November 2014 where children launched their goals on beautiful coloured balloons representing our four new houses, Brooklyn, Arle, Orchard and Alstone. The new school logo was unveiled on vibrant new signs around the school representing a gem stone in line with our new motto: “Rowanfield Infant School, where our little gems come to shine” . We were fortunate to welcome our local MP, Martin Horwood to our launch  as well as staff and children from both Rowanfield Children’s Centre and Rowanfield Junior School, and the press were here to capture the moment with positive features in ‘The Gloucestershire Echo’. As you are aware, the idea of gem stones represents the uniqueness of each child and the word ‘GEMS’ is a clever acrostic for ‘Goals, Exploration, Motivation & Sparkle’. The children are excited about coming to school to shine and take part in an enriching curriculum. We aim for the children to become independent learners and we have high aspirations for them, even Mr Horwood said that the children have a very bright future ahead of them here at Rowanfield Infant School.  Please click here to download a copy of the staff pledge and parent pledge that we sign up to when we become part of the Rowanfield family.
We are always delighted to show visitors around our school and to talk to them about what we believe in. Please feel welcome to visit to judge the quality of education on offer for yourselves.
We work closely with our partner Junior School and Rowanfield Children’s Centre which has enabled us to offer seamless education for children 0-7 years of age in addition to a complete range of onsite services for parents/carers throughout the community.
