The rainbow is our emblem because it is the symbol of a dream and we want our children to fulfil their dreams. The needs of the children are at the heart of everything we do and therefore we are dedicated to providing the best education we can for the children in our care. We believe that our pursuit of excellence does not go unrewarded and is reflected in the behaviour, attitude to learning, caring, independent, responsible nature of each of our pupils.
A privately run OFSTED inspection nursery, Scallywags, operates within the school each day. The children regularly have school lunch with the children from the school. The fully qualified staff follow the guided Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum which allows them to develop each childs individual needs. Scallywags is registered for children aged 2 to 5.
We are part of the Stokesley schools cluster. This is a group of schools who work together, sharing teaching ideas and activities for the children. The cluster introduces our pupils to others in the surrounding area and allows them to socialise through joint learning activities for example in RE, shared visits and numerous sports events.
We, along with our Confederated school have been acknolwedged as the top 2 primaries in the Thirsk area for our delivery of Physical Education and have achieved our Gold Standard School Games Kitemark for commitment, engagement and delivery of competitive sport.
The number of children on roll is steadily increasing. We currently have 54 children on role.
