Friday, 29th April saw Romsey Primary School host another of it’s fantastic Love Days. These days are designed so that we may abandon the traditional curriculum and lessons, and do things that we love! This time, our focus for the day was Real Life Super Heroes, and we were delighted to have the emergency services teaching our children vital life skills and share some aspects of their daily work. What an amazing day we had!
The Search & Rescue dogs, Ruby and Harvey, were very popular indeed with the children! We learned about how …

We are keen to capture your thoughts about homework at RPS, and have created a quick survey. Please visit goo.gl/FWlRTW. The survey should take less than a minute, and your responses are important to how we continue to improve provision for the children.
Thank you. …
Year 4 enjoyed a puppet making workshop with local artist, Nicola Henshaw last week. Nicola, who has been commissioned by Test Valley to create art along the tow path in Romsey, was very impressed with the artistic confidence of our children. Nicola has been collecting memories from local people on how they used to enjoy the canal - from running after GIs for their sweets, to making a wish when the Sprat & Winkle line roared past! Year 4 then created amazing shadow puppets to illustrate some of these memories. Miss Henshaw will be using …

Romsey Primary School & Nursery is a very special place. The children are amazing and we have the most dedicated staff who put the children at the heart of every decision. Ofsted has judged us to be Good in every aspect of what we offer. We are lucky to be one of only a handful of schools in Hampshire that have a maintained nursery, which allows us to nurture and inspire children from below three to eleven years old!
Our site and grounds are fantastic. The school was built in 2007 and has a real ‘wow’ factor; we have spacious grounds with an adventure trail, our own pond and woodland area bursting with trees, bushes and plants used for outdoor learning and play.
The children are ‘very proud to come to school‘. Behaviour is good and ‘pupils are enthusiastic about their learning’. Children enjoy their learning and have a positive attitude to lessons. Teaching ‘is consistently good and underpins the rise in standards and the rapid progress pupils make’ (Ofsted 2014).
We have a strong sense of the ‘Romsey Family’ and this is a significant strength of the school. We have a thriving PTA and positive and purposeful relationships with parents and the wider community. However, don’t take my word for it: come and visit us to see the children actively learning and playing and get a feel for what it is like to be part of the Romsey Family!
