Rowhill School

Welcome

 

Welcome to Rowhill School’s website in this year of recovery and new hope.  Covid has taught us many things, most importantly to appreciate every day as a gift, and to appreciate the ones we love dearly even more.   At Rowhill we remain firm in our vision to provide our pupils with every opportunity to move succussfully on to their onward pathways.

We are a Pupil Referral Unit (PRU) for KS3 and KS4 pupils from 13.5 schools in Hampshire.  We are a good PRU (Ofsted, March 2018); we pride ourselves on our “mini mainstream model” of provision. This website aims to give you a taster of our school’s offer, as well as providing up to date information for parents, pupils and the wider community.

Our pupils come to us at various points during their secondary schooling because of their previous school placement not being suitable for them, at the time of referral. They may attend due to medical reasons, permanent exclusion or being at risk of permanent exclusion.

We provide our pupils with an education that meets their individual needs. Our curriculum is designed to give pupils the cultural capital they need to access their destination pathways with confidence and with resilience so that they complete the programmes that they start.  Destination pathways could include returning to a mainstream school, further education, employment or training. We support the progress of our learners; enabling them to develop social skills, independence, self-motivation and respect for others through our daily personal development and SMSC (Spiritual, Moral, Social and Cultural) lessons.

We promote positive mental health alongside academic achievement. As an 'ACEs informed school', (Adverse childhood Experiences) we understand that young people cannot be successful learners until they feel safe, valued and can be supported to regulate their emotions.

We pride ourselves on the wrap around pastoral support we offer to all our pupils. We constantly challenge and review our approach to managing pupils’ behaviour and attitudes in a way that has a long-term impact on their learning and outcomes.

Safeguarding is a high priority at Rowhill and we apply the principle of “it can happen here”.  The concerns of parents/carers are listened to and acted upon where possible so that the needs of their children are effectively met. Besides our partnerships with parents we also work closely with CAMHS, (Children and Adolescent Mental Health Services), MASH, (Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub) and Childrens’ Services

I hope you find our website useful, please do not hesitate to contact us directly for further information and support.

Best wishes
