Rogiet, situated alongside the Severn Estuary, is a village steeped in history. Much of the past development occurred because of its proximity to the railway at Severn Tunnel Junction; present expansion results from easy access to the M4 corridor and Second Severn Crossing. Rogiet Primary School caters for pupils aged 4 to 11 years of age. Our current catchment area is Rogiet, Highmoor Hill, Five Lanes and Caerwent.
In November 2009, the school moved into a brand new building. The building displays many state-of-the-art features and, in 2010, was awarded the BREEAM Excellence Awards for the UK and Wales, scoring a rating of 78.18%. This award acknowledges the school building as having the highest rating for Sustainability of any other School or Educational building in the country. The building was designed by White Design Ltd. and constructed by Willmott Dixon. Both of these companies worked very closely with the pupils, staff and local community to ensure that everyone’s opinions and ideas for the new school were addressed. The pupils, through the school council and older pupils, requested the inclusion of many Eco-friendly features including solar panels, energy-efficient lighting and a wind turbine. They even picked the colour schemes! Children and staff watched the complete process of the school build and were regularly invited onto the site by Willmott Dixon’s team.
