About Rolvenden Primary School

Welcome to Rolvenden!

This page outlines the key information related to a day in the life of Rolvenden Primary School. More detail on all of the information below can be found in our Parent Information Guide.

School Day 

You enter our school for drop-off and collection using the gate at the rear of the school. We operate a one way system which means you can drop your child directly at their classroom door. 

Our school day starts at 8.45am and runs until 3:15pm

We welcome children through the school gates from 8.35am and they are closed at 8.45am.

Our gates reopen at the end of the school day at 3.15pm and are closed at 3:20pm.

More information on contacting your child’s class teacher can be found using the contact us page of this website or by downloading the Parent Information Guide below.

Our Uniform

All children are expected to wear a standard school uniform. It is a way by which they can be recognised as belonging to the school and it fosters a positive attitude towards their learning. The Rolvenden uniform is quite distinctive and children wear it with pride.

The core components of the Rolvenden uniform are as follows:

Yellow polo shirt

Brown sweatshirt or cardigan with the school logo.

Grey trousers/shorts/skirt

Black shoes.

Yellow Gingham Dress

A detailed overview of our uniform along with information about how to order and our supply of second hand uniform can be found in the Parent Information Guide which can be downloaded by using the link below. 


PE Kit 

We are proud of our PE and sports offering here at Rolvenden and expect all of our children to wear a standard kit when participating in this type of activity.

The core components of our PE Kit are as follows:

Yellow t-shirt

Black shorts/joggers


Black jumper

For more information including recommended, but not essential items, which may be required to specific activities or extra-curricular events, please see our Parent Information Guide.

Behaviour Expectations

We have high expectations of the children’s behaviour at Rolvenden and aim to develop a sense of community and shared responsibility both in and out of school. We keep school rules to a minimum and follow three guiding principles:

Be Kind

Be Honest

Do our Best

All staff, children and adults sign a home-school agreement at the beginning of their time at Rolvenden and this lays out these expectations along with what the school will offer the children in return. We pride ourselves on our communication and welcome feedback  on all aspects of our educational offering.

You can find more information about this on our communication page or by reading our behaviour policy which can be downloaded below.
