Rockingham Primary School

At Rockingham we are committed to being an inclusive school, providing the best possible standard of education for every child.


Our aim at Rockingham Primary is to 'Broaden Horizons'.

Breakfast Club

At Rockingham Primary we offer a pre-booked, pre-paid breakfast club.

This is run by experienced staff who are employed by the school as Teaching Assistants and HLTAs.

The club starts at 7.50am and children are taken to class at 8.35am.   Places at breakfast clubs are limited and must be pre-booked through the office.  If you need further information, the staff in the school office will be happy to help.


School clubs

Throughout the year, children in EYFS,  Key Stage One and Key Stage Two have the opportunity to participate in a variety of clubs. 

To enhance our learning experiences further, our children are also taken on year group trips as part of their studies and there is an opportunity for a residential trip for our year 6 children during their time at Rockingham.

We also welcome visitors in to school to provide activities and enrichment opportunities for our children and to deepen pupil's learning.


Our Approach to Positive Behaviour  

We believe there should be no ‘invisible’ pupils and those who continuously show they can ‘Be Ready, Be Respectful and Be Safe’ deserve to be awarded. Please see below the behaviour rewards on offer:
