About Rosecroft Primary School

Rosecroft Primary School is a new purpose-built school, on one level. There are 21 permanent classrooms, two halls, various group rooms, plus a library and staff room.

The school is a co-educational Community Primary day school with nursery catering for children aged 3-11, normally from the southern end of Attleborough. We are a very popular school; and will have a capacity by the end of 2020 to teach 630 children.

Rosecroft Primary School aims to provide a rich, broad and balanced curriculum that develops the whole child. We strive for the highest standards in English, mathematics and science and work to improve and extend the attainments of each child in these ‘core’ subjects.

We provide a very secure environment where each child can feel safe and happy.

We work well in partnership with parents to support each child and to overcome any difficulties that any child may face, whether these are to do with learning, relationships or behaviour.
