Roseberry Primary School is a Community co-educational day school. It provides for the education of children aged from 4 to 11 years. The majority of our pupils are from the village of Great Ayton, although some travel from surrounding villages, the town of Stokesley and further afield. The Local Education Authority provides free home to school transport for children living further than two miles from the school if Roseberry Community Primary School is the nearest North Yorkshire County Council establishment to their home. Although the school's postal address is Middlesbrough, this school is administered by North Yorkshire County Council.

Children should not arrive at school before 8.45 am. They should normally be collected or leave the site within five minutes of the closure of school, unless prior arrangements have been made. If, for any reason, parents or carers are unable to collect a child/children on time, please let us know in advance.

Children paintingWe aim to make our school:

  Friendly and

Roseberry Community Primary School will provide a broad and balanced curriculum, giving opportunity and encouragement for all children to achieve their full potential in a happy and creative environment. We aim to develop self-motivation and self-discipline in our children, in order that they become caring and responsible citizens.

The following Aims and Objectives of Roseberry School have been formulated by the staff and governors of Roseberry School. They give an insight into the environment we are keen to foster and develop.

The Aims are a framework within which specific policies and schemes of work will be formulated. The schemes of work for each subject area recognise our statutory obligations and indicate how the more general aims and objectives are to be realised.

We will:
  • Help all children master the skills of numeracy, literacy and oracy in preparation for life
  • Serve the needs of the individual child's life-long education
  • Provide a stimulating environment, relevant curriculum and equal opportunities for all
  • Encourage all children to be critical and flexible thinkers, and good communicators
  • Provide for the full dimension of ability within class groups
  • Encourage all children to care for and appreciate the opinions and beliefs of others
  • Help all children to understand their own personal development
  • Have appropriate, high expectations of all pupils to encourage them to give of their best
  • Encourage self-disciplined behaviour and enhance the awareness of human achievement (the arts, engineering, exploration, scientific discovery etc)
  • Encourage an understanding of the need to care for our environment
  • Involve the children with the wider community, senior citizens, police etc
  • Encourage parents to participate in their child's education

Curriculum News

You might like to know what your child will be learning during this term. Please feel free to do any research, or perhaps a visit to the library as background to these themes – of course this is optional


ButterflyIn Reception we are finding out all about minibeasts. We will be exploring the school grounds and we are planning a trip to Butterfly World at Preston Park. If your child has any information about minibeasts, please encourage them to bring it to school.

In Literacy we are learning more new sounds including sh, ch, th, ee, oo. We are also learning how to plan and write stories about giants.

Year 1

Gardener In Year 1 we are hoping to develop green fingers by studying the environment and growing our own plants. Please encourage your child to help you with the gardening! We will also be looking at making our local environment a safer place to live in Geography.

We will be investigating fabrics and using them to make collages, so any interesting fabrics would be gratefully received!

Year 2

Although this is a very busy term in Year 2 with our SATs, we are planning lots of enjoyable activities too! We are going on a real Teddy Bear's Picnic with the Infants so be prepared for making honey sandwiches! As part of Art, Design and Technology we will be designing and making technicolour dream coats for Joseph. Any spare beads, sequins, ribbons, braids and fabric paints would be appreciated.

In Science we are learning about Forces and Electricity.

Year 3/4

Viking The Vikings are coming to Roseberry to see Middle Team on May 8th! We will be listening Viking Longboatto stories and looking closely at the objects that the Vikings bring from their homes to share with us. We have begun to research the Vikings on the internet and to build longboats and may be, there will be a longboat race at Roseberry before the end of term! We will be learning Viking songs and writing our own Viking Sagas in literacy. We hope to invite you into school to share these with us later on in the term.

We are examining our local environment very closely as our science topic is to investigate rocks and soils and answer "What's under our feet". We will be taking advantage of our school grounds and working in our sensory garden as we discover more about soils and local rock formations.

We will be walking to the village too, to visit our local churches and compare and contrast them, as part of our RE this term. If you would like to accompany us-please let us know. We are preparing questionnaires in class as part of this project so that we can make some good comparisons between the churches.

Year 5/6

Microscope SCIENCE:   You could easily state the bad things about micro-organisms, for instance they can cause mould and some illnesses, but can you discuss the useful things they do? We’ll be finding out about both! We are also going to get noisy and discover how to make and change sounds (NOT SHOUTING!)

Sphinx HISTORY:  Did you know that another tomb has been found near the site of Tutankhamun?Our topic research will show us how the ancient Egyptians lived and died. We will have an optional homework to design and make Egyptian artefacts – prizes for all entries and the class winner.

Dancing Pirate TREASURE ISLAND:    This will be our end of year production. Hop along to the performances in July. If you can help with anything for this, such as scenery and prop making (we’ll need loads of pirate costumes and large pieces of cardboard for scenery), or have hidden talents in singing, music and acting, please let us know – we won’t make you walk the plank!
