Rosley CofE School 

Rosley is a voluntary Aided Primary School catering for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years. The original school was founded in 1873, but moved to its present site in 1961. It is a pleasant, well maintained building situated opposite Holy Trinity Church and Rosley Village Hall in a picturesque rural setting. The school is easily accessible from Dalston and Wigton and serves the local communities of Rosley, Westward, Brocklebank and Curthwaite.

Inside the school there are four self-contained teaching areas, an attractive school hall, a well-equipped kitchen where meals are prepared on site, good cloakroom facilities and offices for the Head Teacher and Business Manager. The Reception and KS1 classrooms have direct access to a secure outdoor area, which is used by the reception children on a daily basis. The school hall functions as a dining room, a meeting place for Collective Worship and an extra teaching space if needed. We are lucky to have the use of the much larger village hall when occasions demand more space!

Providing a pleasant, comfortable and stimulating environment in which the children can work and play is essential and much has been done over the last few years to upgrade and update the facilities. We have school field, sports pavilion and vegetable garden-The sports field is used by not only the school but also members of the community. The vegetables we are growing in the garden are used in the school kitchen and children are learning about the importance of vegetables as part of a healthy diet. Busy Bees Nursery is located within the school grounds. Our Foundation Stage has close links with this private nursery and there are often joint activities.

Local Offer


Rosley School prides itself on being a highly inclusive school, welcoming and providing for children with a full range of needs. All our staff work hard to meet the needs of all the children in our care, we aim to give them access to the full school curriculum, at a level which is appropriate to their age and ability. We also consider the needs of parents and carers, thus our building has been adapted to allow full access for pupils and family members who may have disabilities, and our Accessibility Plan details further provision we would make as and when appropriate.

We have staff who are trained to deliver specific programs to individuals and small groups of children who need a boost in literacy or mathematical skills at certain points during the school year. We work closely with outside agencies that can help us access further support for individuals who require it.
