OFSTED 2019

Rowan Gate was recognised by Ofsted in March 2019 as continuing to be an outstanding school.

Inspectors said :

“The leadership team has maintained the outstanding quality of education in the school since the last inspection” (March 2014)

“(The) school is a vibrant and welcoming place, where all pupils are supported in developing their self-esteem, communicating effectively using speech, sign and pictures and developing their social skills. They (pupils) are provided with an outstanding quality of education from their individual starting points because learning is individualised and expectations are consistently high.”
