Rosliston C.E. Primary School

Rosliston School is a member of the family of Church of England schools.  We cater for the educational needs of children from 4 to 11 in a caring, family atmosphere. Pupils are admitted to our Reception class in the year in which they are 5.  There are currently 88 pupils on roll, from the immediate village and from the wider surrounding area.  The school buildings date back over a hundred years, though they have been extensively altered and modernized.  The school also has its own playing field within the village.


Admissions to our reception class are dealt with by the LEA. Admission packs are usually available from the school at the start of November, or you can apply on-line at However we do like parents to make us aware that they will be applying for a place in order that we can forward plan and make prospective parents aware of meetings, events etc. If your child attends Rosliston Pre-School then they will meet members of the school staff when they visit to read stories etc. We try to make the transition to full time education as smooth and enjoyable as possible.

During the second part of the summer term preceding admission there is an evening meeting for parents, affording opportunities to meet the Headteacher, class teacher, school nurse etc. There is also a display of uniform, which can be ordered through the school. Also prior to starting school all children are offered the opportunity to make several pre-entry visits, including the chance to attend for lunch with a parent. We find that these sessions are enjoyable and help to ease the transfer to full time education.

Rosliston is a happy and friendly school. We try to create an atmosphere where your child will want to come to school, is treated as an individual and where learning is an enjoyable experience.


The school is divided into four registration groups:


Years 1 and 2

Years 3 and 4

Years 5 and 6

Classes may group together for various activities and teaching may from time to time be shared between staff. Within each class there will be children of varying ability and children are grouped appropriately according to the activity in order to cater for age, aptitude, ability and interest. Programmes of work are prepared to suit the needs of groups of children and also individuals within the group.


All LEA schools in England are required by law to follow the National Curriculum as set down by the DFEE.

The National Curriculum comprises :

English, Maths, Science, ICT, Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art, P.E. and PSHE.

R.E. is covered at assembly time and as a curriculum subject.

The National Curriculum specifies essential teaching within each subject area. At Rosliston the National Curriculum is broadly covered as a two yearly cycle covering all subjects. A variety of teaching styles are used ranging from whole class, groups and individual programmes of work. A detailed curriculum plan is made for each class for every term.

Pupils in our Reception class follow the Foundation Sate curriculum and are assessed against this throughout their first year in school.

The National Curriculum is split at primary level into 2 Key Stages.

K.S.1 - Infant and K.S.2. - Junior.

The subjects at both Key Stages are the same, but the skills and knowledge are graded.

Children’s achievements in English, mathematics and science are formally assessed at the end of each Key Stage. and in English and Maths at the end of Y3, Y4 and Y5. We also assess reading ability annually from Y2. Other assessments are ongoing throughout the year.


Club activities

The school runs a number of club activities: Recorders, netball, football, cricket and art to name but a few. Most are seasonal and do not take place during inclement weather. Notification of specific timings and age groups involved are given in school newsletters. You will be required to complete a permission slip if your child would like to be involved with after school activities.
