Gargrave Warriors

We need your support!


We would like to introduce ourselves as the Gargrave Warriors, taking part in the 12K ‘Total Warrior’ race (now known as ‘The Great Northern Mud Run!) at Bramham Park, Leeds, to raise money for technology equipment for the pupils of Gargrave Primary School.


On 22nd June, our team, Gargrave Warriors, made up of staff and friends, are taking on the 12K challenge along with 25 gruelling obstacles, including ‘Human BBQ’, ‘The Plunge’ and ‘The Shocker’ to name but a few.  We have set the challenge bar high in order to raise £20,000 for ICT equipment, including tablets and interactive whiteboards.


As with all schools, Gargrave Primary School is facing challenging financial times, with further budget cuts on the horizon. This inevitably means budgets are squeezed more than ever and resources are not being updated.  Achieving our target will enable our pupils to have greater access to technology and up-to-date programs.  Studies have found that when technology is integrated into lessons, students find learning more enjoyable and fun.  This leads to more active participation in the learning process, which in turn increases knowledge retention.


We are writing to you in the hope that you may be able to donate to our fundraising challenge.  Please take a few minutes to watch our video below.  We hope that you are able to contribute and appreciate your support and involvement in enriching our pupils’ education.


To make a contribution, simply send us a cheque, made payable to Gargrave CE (VC) Primary School NYCC BAFS A/c or donate via our Crowdfunding page ( 


Many thanks in advance and we look forward to providing you with photos of our escapades at Bramham Park in June!

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 provide 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 ethos of an "open school".  We provide a curriculum which meets the individual 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.
