Headteachers Welcome

Rowner Infant School is a friendly 2 form entry infant school in the Rowner area of Gosport. Our catchment area includes children from service families and many of our other families have resided in Gosport for several years.

Our school has amazing grounds which we are currently developing. We have a Year R forest area, an allotment garden and a large playground area which includes play trail equipment. Every year group also has an outside area. Our inside space is also extensive and we have bright and spacious classrooms and we have a newly developed library. We are very proud of our school and the whole community. At Rowner, we very much value the partnership between home and school. We believe that by working together we can give the children opportunities to learn the necessary skills and knowledge to be successful learners and to enable them to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future. We pride ourselves on high expectations and we are passionate about giving Gosport children the best start to their education. We believe that all children can learn and we aim to raise aspirations and provide all of the children with the sense that they can be anything they want to be. We believe that the children’s emotional well-being is as important as academic progress and believe this is a cornerstone for achievement. In response to the recent pandemic we have made changes to reflect the emotional needs of our children and their families. We have recently become an accredited ‘Attachment and Trauma Aware’ school. This award provides a framework of support and understanding for schools within which children and young people who have experienced adversity, can heal, thrive, play, and learn. Rowner Infant School is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment. Our school has been judged as ‘Good’ by Ofsted and we are very proud of what our children achieve.
