About Us

We aim to provide exceptional educational, sporting and social opportunities for all our children whilst maintaining and building on strong community attachments.  We aim to treat all children as individuals, and to develop an atmosphere of care, trust and common respect for each other's talents within a nurturing environment.

 Children, staff and parents / carers know each other well, which helps maintain a family atmosphere in which a child can feel secure and valued. All classes have an age range of 2 years, which creates opportunities throughout the school for children to take responsibility and set standards, creating a growing self confidence in the older children and giving younger ones targets to strive for.

We have a ‘School Council’, in which elected representatives from each class meet with the head teacher and discuss issues which affect or interest them.

Most children have the experience of representing the school in sport when we play against, or in partnership activities with, our neighbouring schools.

 We are proud of our achievements, and feel that our "small school" has a special place in the community. We aim not to stand in isolation but incorporate young and old in the process of learning and living together.  We have strong links with other child care providers, caring for children prior to starting Nursery here and also with our Senior Citizens, who visit regularly to be entertained by the children or to share some of their interests and experiences with the children.

Regular sporting activities, where children meet with their peer groups from other schools, are arranged for our active Primary School Cluster.

We have strong links with Ryedale School and have regular use of their facilities and expertise. This means that our children make a smooth transition to secondary school.

We have been formally Federated with Rosedale Abbey CP School since April 2013.  Federation will 'open doors', whilst enabling us to preserve the unique characteristics of each individual school.
