Rockingham Primary School

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


Enrichment is an important part of life at Rockingham Primary.

Our Enrichment Team


Our children have the opportunity to participate in a range of extra-curricular activities during their time with us at Rockingham. 

Enrichment is a key driver for both our school and our academy sponsor – David Ross Education Trust. We provide a broad range of enrichment opportunities - Sports, the Arts and Culture - as we firmly believe that these opportunities have many benefits for our children, both academically and personally by broadening their life experiences.


Click here to see our personal development calendar for the current academic year.  This is updated termly. 



At Rockingham Primary we believe enrichment helps to develop the following skills:

  • Determination to succeed
  • Teamwork
  • Winning and losing with grace
  • Respect for others
  • Tolerance
  • Self Confidence
  • A sense of fun and enjoyment
  • Creativity
  • Focus and attitude
  • Awareness of health and wellbeing

Academies across the Trust are encouraged to work collaboratively to make the most of the opportunities on offer.
