Diocese of West Yorkshire
Welcome to Gargrave Church of England Primary School Website

Welcome from the Headteacher

 We hope that you and your child will be very happy with us and that you will take an active part in the life of school.  We offer many out of school activities in which your child can become involved in and invite parents to support the school in many ways.


Our school is built on mutual respect and care for one another and is a place where individuals are valued.  We expect children to work hard to achieve the highest standard posssible, to make informed decisions and to work and play co-operatively in a well-ordered environment.


At Gargrave school we aim to provide a happy, secure and stimulating environment in which all children are motivated to learn and achieve to their full potential.  We wish our children to be self disciplined, co-operative and caring individuals, who will develop confidence and a sense of awe, wonder and enquiry about the world we live in.


To achieve these aims we deliver the Foundation Curriculum and National Curriculum with rigour in a balanced, systematic way and provide each child with an educational entitlement of the highest quality.


We use a variety of teaching methods to promote learning and provde appropriate resources for all children.  We work in partnership with governors, parents and the wider community, involving them in all aspects of school life by promoting the ehtos of an "open school".  We provide a curriculum which meets the indiviual learning of all the pupils, and develops the distinctive character and ethos, which exists within the local community.


As a Church of England school we promote a Christian ethos within school and will encourage children to understand other faiths and customs.  We provide daily collective worship for all children.


Please remember we are always available should you wish to talk over anything with us, although, it would be appreciated if you could make an appointment.


Mrs S Peel
