Our latest Ofsted inspection stated that:
'Pupils with special educational needs and/or disabilities (SEND) receive caring support. Pupils' emotional needs are met very well.'
At Rowanfield we passionately believe that all of our children should be able to reach their full potential, regardless of their circumstances, race, gender or ability. We are fully inclusive school, our hard working team of staff supporting all children to reduce barriers to learning.
Our Behaviour and Emotional Support Training (BEST) team provide additional nurturing, coaching and mentoring support as well as a number of personalised programmes to help some of our more vulnerable children unpick 'blocks' to their learning. They are also available for any child who simply needs someone to talk to.
We also carefully plan support and interventions for all groups of children, including our more able and pupils with specific educational needs.

Early Help Offer
The new Children and Families Act 2014 means changes to the law to give greater protection to vulnerable children, better support for children whose parents are separating, a new system to help children with special educational needs and disabilities, and help for parents to balance work and family life. Early help is important because it ensures vulnerable children and their families receive the help they need when they need it. It can prevent problems getting worse and requiring specialist intervention from social care, health and the youth justice system.
The Gloucestershire Children’s Partnership has adopted the Munro ‘Working Together’ definition of Early Help:
Early help means providing support as soon as a problem emerges, at any point in a child’s life, from the foundation years through to the teenage years.
