Our curriculum

"The touchstone of an excellent curriculum is that it instils in children a love of learning for its own sake."

Sir Jim Rose

We have been developing our grounds and our provision to make learning at Rowan School an exciting, fun thing that children want to do.


Our Creative Curriculum is designed to foster each child's social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development and to enhance learning in literacy, maths, science, social studies, the arts, and technology.


Children are encouraged to investigate, create, discover and communicate in order to add to their current knowledge and expand their interests and skills.


Our aim is that every child leaves our school with a solid foundation on which knowledge and positive self-esteem can grow and flourish.


Here are some of the things we focus on:


Health and well being

  • Keep fit through physical activity
  • Positive self image
  • Eat healthily in response to level of activity undertaken
  • Extend interest in outdoor activities beyond school

Creative thinking
