Rowan Gate Primary School is a special primary school for pupils aged 3 to 11 years who have a range of learning difficulties.
- Attainments well below the expected range of their peers with additional difficulties that may include physical difficulties, speech and language delay, low self-esteem, sensory impairment and under developed social skills
- Significant or severe learning difficulties
- A diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder that requires structured teaching and may require discrete provision.
The school is based over two sites in Wellingborough and Rushden.
Our facilities include a hydrotherapy pool, soft playroom, sensory room and a therapy room which is used by Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists and Speech and Language Therapists who come into school to assess children and support staff with programmes and work to meet individual children’s needs. We are supported by full time School Nurses who operate in a well-equipped medical room.
Our school is committed to the benefits on creative therapies and the children are able to access Art therapy, Music Therapy, Drama Therapy, Massage Therapy and Theraplay.
Rowan Gate East opened in April 2015 and is situated on the Hayway in a very pleasant Victorian school which has been fully refurbished to meet our needs.
The move to Rushden has allowed for the school to expand into the East of Northamptonshire and gives local children with special educational needs an opportunity to attend their local school.
