Welcome to the Nawton Community Primary School & Rosedale Abbey Community Primary School Federation. 


Our federation consists of two vibrant, creative and supportive community primary schools situated some twelve miles apart. 

 Both our schools have long and proud histories in serving our communities.

We are both unique and this is what makes us special.

 Both schools have been judged by OfSTED as good (with some outstanding features).


We first began collaborating in 2010 with a clear vision of:

  •  raising aspirations
  • developing strong communities

  • valuing the diversity of each individual school

Two years later, we consulted our communities and then chose to formally federate.

That vision still holds true today as we move forward into the next chapter of our development.

The Federation prides itself on providing a friendly, caring, family environment within which all children can flourish.


To enable all our children to enjoy their learning and to empower them to realise their potential, we offer:

  • exciting learning experiences
  • access to experienced, caring & committed staff
  • tailored, appropriate support and challenge


We really do believe that we work 'better together'.

  • Staff work together - improving practice and developing partnerships;

  • Children work together - improving learning and building relationships;

  • Our budget is brought together - improving resources and best value; and

  • Leadership works together - improving opportunities and outcomes for children.

  • We are constantly challenging ourselves and each other through the networks we have built between us, but also with other school communities.

  • We learn from each other's strengths and support each other with areas for development.

  • We are constantly striving for excellence, securing high levels of achievement and providing outstanding opportunities for all our children.

Don't take our word for it!

        Our children are our best ambassadors. 

                Why not come and meet them?

                        They would be delighted to tell you about their school and their Federation.
