Our values underpin a culture that promotes love, kindness, forgiveness, thankfulness and trust.

As part of The Upper Wharfedale Primary Federation, we benefit from being part of an outward looking organisation and seek opportunities to learn collaboratively and access specialist teaching beyond an individual school’s scope.

Our weekly RE sessions enable children to know they are of immense worth and that they can make a valuable contribution to their school community and the wider world.

The staff and Governors are unwavering in their commitment to children’s learning within our federation. The curriculum encourages children to discover, explore and create. We understand that memorable learning is learning that lasts. We offer a wide-ranging school curriculum that ignites a love of learning which will last a lifetime.

Most importantly, we are a family – in each of our schools and together as a wider community. We will know each child well and treat them as an individual. Everyone here has a part to play and everyone here is special.
