Information about the School
Roseacres only opened in September 2015 with 33 pupils on roll! Now with over 190 pupils and eight classes, it caters for pupils in Years R to Y6. It is on the former site of Takeley Primary that relocated to a brand new school on Priors Green development in Little Canfield. Takeley village has and still is undergoing significant change due to continued local expansion resulting in a high demand for primary school places. Consequently, in September '18 a 'bulge' Reception cohort was admitted and a further building project was undertaken that academic year to provide two additional classrooms, creating a dedicated stand-alone Early Years Unit.
