Sheerness West Federation

About Us

Head of school, Mrs S.Mackay, the staff and children at Rose Street Primary School welcome you to their website.


Rose Street Primary School is situated in the heart of Sheerness, a coastal holiday town steeped in dockyard history. The housing here is a mixture of privately owned properties and local housing association homes. The homes vary from new semi-detached houses to older, more established family homes and sheltered housing.

The school is currently in the process of becoming a two-form entry primary school: Yr 6 and the nursery’s new buildings were completed for use in Autumn term 2015. The staff and children are proud of their school and invite you to look around at the children’s work and the information on this site. These pages are designed for children, parents and visitors alike.

Rose Street Primary School and West Minster Primary School are federated to form the Sheerness West Federation. Both are community schools , and share learning and management opportunities across the Federation. They are part of the locally-accountable education service, working closely with each other and with Kent County Council, the Local Education Authority.
