Welcome!

These pages aim to give you a flavour of some of the things that are happening in school and to provide you with current information about school news and events. We are very happy to welcome all parents and carers who are thinking of sending their child to Glaisdale Primary School to come along to school and meet us in person. If you already have a child here or have had a child who has been through primary school here, we would be pleased to renew the links between us. Please contact us if you would like more details, or if you require any school communication in an alternative format.

Each child goes through the primary stage only once, and at Glaisdale we are proud to offer a supportive, caring environment for all members of our school family. We are a very small village primary school serving our village community. We view this as a positive feature; we may be small but we aim to provide the quality and scope of education that is enjoyed and, indeed, may even be envied by larger schools.

Our pupils are developed and nurtured by experienced, talented staff who are enthusiastic and friendly. At Glaisdale we have fun together, we work hard, and learn together. We have high expectations of pupils' effort and behaviour, whilst ensuring that we provide challenge and support for all our pupils according to individual need. Pupils are encouraged to have excitement in learning, pride in achievement and self-esteem.

We value academic and personal success. The development of literacy, numeracy and good work habits are given high priority at Glaisdale, and this has been recognised by our achievements. We are also committed to providing a rich curriculum so drama, sport and the arts are enhanced through the curriculum and activities we aim to provide in and through school. We have strong links and partnerships with schools within our area as well as through our sports partnership which we work hard to promote.

One of our favourite times of the week is in Friday assembly when we announce our Star of the Week awards. This celebration of pupils achieving a personal best in any aspect of their school life is very much at the heart of our approach to education and school leadership.

Our website cannot tell you everything about our school but it will give you taste of the quality of education you can expect for your child at Glaisdale Primary School. But why not come along to meet us and see the school in action – you can be assured of a warm welcome!
