Our Classes

Our Early Years Foundation Stage / Key Stage 1 Class is taught by Mrs Rebekah Fordham-Brown in the ground floor classroom. Beka has Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) Primary but also has an Arts & Steiner / Montessori background. She has a wide experience of working in local primary schools and really provides Rosedale's pupils with the best possible start! (Plus her classroom is stunning!)

Our Key Stage 2 class is taught by Mrs Anne Reed (also QTS Primary) in the first floor classroom. Anne also has an Arts background and a wealth of teaching experience, from Nursery to Year 6. She is 'hot' on basic skills, enjoys teaching Arts & French and is also developing a stunning classroom!

Additional learning support is provided by Teaching Assistant Mrs Karen Saunders, who is currently undergoing Higher Level Teaching Assistant training.


In addition some specialist teaching will be delivered to KS2 pupils on Friday afternoons when our KS2 pupils visit our partner school, Nawton CP School, to work within their 'peer group' classes.  At Nawton Mr David Swann will continue to teach KS2 Music & Mrs Anne Reed KS2 French.

Children at Rosedale Abbey School do enjoy an enviable adult:pupil ratio and work can be tailored to each child's specific needs and interests because of it.

The teaching delivered is appropriate to children's ages, the level at which they are working and, as far as is possible, delivered in their preferred learning style.  Teachers from Rosedale Abbey and from Nawton, who have a varied range of specialisms, do plan opportunities for sharing their teaching expertise across both schools. 

Whenever possible, topics involve first hand experiences, visits out and visitors in, and many are planned and shared with our patrner school, Nawton CP.  Parents and carers are welcomed as volunteers both in class and on visits.

Children are encouraged to join in with a range of extra-curricular activities including sports, musical instrument clubs, technology club, arts, crafts, cookery and gardening.
