Rowner Junior

Rowner Junior School is located upon an extensive site in Gosport which we share with Steady Steps pre-school and Rowner Infants School. At our school we work successfully together to achieve excellence in all we do. We pride ourselves on growing learners, leaders and citizens and equipping our children with the tools necessary to be successful in their futures.
We have had extensive experience of working with those aspiring to be teachers through a range of Qualified Teacher Status programmes, and have worked successfully with Winchester University, the Hampshire LEARN Teaching Alliance (now HISP) and the Pioneer Teaching Alliance primary SCITT programme.

About our school experience

Individual requirements:
  • None

Each free school experience day runs from 8:30am to 3.30pm. Places are limited to two people each day. Please allow 10 working days’ notice when booking a place. Upon receipt of your booking, in addition to the system notification, you will receive an email, acknowledging your booking. Approximately two weeks prior to your day, you will receive a further email with joining details, a request for electronic copies of your ID and a request for final confirmation of your intent to attend.
When you arrive at Rowner Junior School you will need to report to the main school reception, where an ID check will take place against the ID you have sent over electronically (part of our safeguarding procedure). We operate a cashless catering system so please bring lunch and any other refreshments. You will be escorted to the teacher that you will be based with for most of the day. The rest of the day (8.50am – 3.05pm) will be spent observing lessons across the different year groups. An optional proforma will be provided to record observations, thoughts and reflections during the lessons. Morning break (10.20-10.35am*) and lunch break (12.00pm-12.50pm*) will be spent with the class teacher where you will have the opportunity to ask questions, as well as having the opportunity to observe the children enjoying the extensive lunchtime clubs that take place at our school*.
We aim to end each day with a reflection session when you may have an opportunity to meet with Kerry Sharpe to ask questions about your day and next steps. You will then be escorted back to the main reception to sign out. Should you wish to arrange any further visits then Kerry will discuss this possibility with you. We hope you enjoy your visit.

*Please note that there may be some variations to break and lunch times, as well as activities for children at this time whilst we are still adhering to our Covid Risk Assessment and operating the Bubble systems.
