Welcome to Rock Ferry Primary School
I am delighted to welcome you to Rock Ferry Primary School’s Website and Virtual Learning Environment. My name is Sara Radley, and I am proud to be Headteacher of this happy and successful school.
At Rock Ferry, we are committed to being an inclusive primary school with a determination to provide an excellent education for all our children. We strive to create a happy, safe learning environment in which all children flourish, both personally and academically.
As a Growing Learners School we aim to develop confident, resilient citizens who enjoy the buzz that challenging learning can give them and are keen to contribute positively to society.
There is an African proverb that states “It takes a whole village to educate a child”. I firmly believe that the success of a school is dependent on every member of the school community working together towards our shared aim. I am lucky enough to be the Head of an organisation where staff, parents and carers and governors are all dedicated to giving the children in our care the best possible start in life and to achieve the best possible outcomes.

Year 2 are studying for an Arts Award with The Williamson Art Gallery.
Della Robia Pottery all of which was made in Birkenhead.
Listening intently to Kathy from the Williamson Art Gallery as she explains the exhibits.
From a ship built here in Birkenhead. We studied the similarities between the Titanic and other ships of it's time.
Lanterns from a ship built at Camell Lairds in Birkenhead.
We look like we are on the ship.
A life belt similar to those on the Titanic, the fateful voyage Year 2 have been studying.
The children dressed up as characters whose accessories appeared in a painting.
It was very much a' hands on' trip.
Our Arts Award sketch books were used to re create and discuss features of some of the paintings and pottery.
Sketching in the Della Robia Room.
Beautiful Della Robia Pottery in the room most children found their favourite.
