The Principal

A Welcome From the Principal, Ms J Virk BSc (Hons) PGCE MBA


On behalf of our pupils, parents, staff and Local Governing Body, I would like to welcome you to the Rowlatts Hill Primary Academy website. I hope you will find the site enjoyable, interesting and informative.

The quality of education we provide for all the learners at Rowlatts Hill is ‘Good’ according to our recent Ofsted inspection (2013). We have high expectations of our children regardless of the individual challenges they may face. Learners make progress through the broad, balanced, enriched and creative curriculum which is delivered by the highly committed and skilled teaching and non-teaching staff. The curriculum will continue to evolve and be responsive to 21st century learning needs including global awareness and sustainability as well as ensuring it equips our learners with the essential skills they need as they develop and grow.

The statement of the school’s values “together we succeed through challenge and enjoyment”; more importantly these individual values of – Reciprocity, Resourcefulness, Resilience and Reflectiveness can be seen in the way in which learners behave well in lessons and respond positively to the challenges set by their teachers. The school aims to provide every learner with a personalised education, where the individual and the particular needs of each learner are met. We will support our learners to be community citizens through respect and celebration of the varied cultures, racial backgrounds, languages spoken and individual characteristics which they represent. Their views will be sought and valued in all aspects of school life including the curriculum and what helps them learn including the curriculum and what helps them learn about life in modern Britain.

We are extremely proud of the improved academic performance the school since the last inspection in 2013 as we know it gives our pupils the best possible chance of opening up a wealth of life and career opportunities, not least setting them on track to achieve 9 – 1 at GCSE. Rowlatts Hill Primary Academy will continue to drive its own improvement with the support of RMET, set its own challenging targets and recognize that for the sake of our learners we can always do better.

Rowlatts Hill Primary Academy continues to be committed to maximizing learning opportunities across the whole school day and beyond. The school offers a wide range of drama, musical and sporting activities for children of all ages.

The pupils and staff make Rowlatts Hill Primary Academy a happy and special place to learn.

Don’t take my word for it … come and see for yourself!
