Welcome to Rolvenden Primary School

Small School – BIG DIFFERENCE!

Welcome Message from the Headteacher

Vision and Values

We have established core values that run through the heart of our curriculum. They were developed in collaboration with our children, families, staff and governors and are based around the acronym ‘CREATE’.

We are ambitious for our children and are proud of our reputation as a small school that makes a big difference.

Our Curriculum

Our broad, balanced and aspirational curriculum has been developed by our staff incorporating the latest research, clear sequential knowledge and skills progressions along with opportunities for learning ‘beyond the classroom’.

"There is a real sense of 'family' throughout the entire school between the teachers, pupils and parents. The older children go out of their way to welcome and support new starters. All of the teachers (and supporting staff) have created a safe, wonderful and exciting environment for children to learn, explore and have fun."

Comment from – Parent feedback questionnaire 2024

"As a whole school, I find Rolvenden to be well managed, and in the majority, the staff to be exemplary. The support staff in willow are nurturing and go above and beyond to support children who are finding things challenging or having any pastoral difficulty. As always I love the community at Rolvenden, how every staff member knows every child as an individual, and indeed every child knows every child in the same way. Allowing for strong bonds between them all and a sense of a “whole school team” among them which is very clear to see."

"It's like a lovely large family that looks after the individual kids holistically; and the sense of togetherness and belongingness."
