OFSTED says Grassington Primary School continues to be a Good school
Grassington Primary School was inspected by OFSTED on 24 May 2017 and they have agreed that Grassington continues to be classified as a Good school.

Grassington Primary School is located in the centre of the village of Grassington.

The hub of the beautiful Upper Wharfedale region of the Yorkshire Dales.

We are a small, friendly Church of England Primary School with a caring ethos based upon Christian values. We may be small but we don’t let size get in the way of our ideas or ambitions for our children.

As well as giving our children the essential tools for learning and excelling through a rich and vibrant curriculum, we are committed to enabling all our children to grow and develop in all areas of life so that they can fulfil their potential and realise their dreams.

Our exciting website is here to help you find out about us and all the wonderful things we do to make learning fun. It is also a place for our pupils to celebrate and share their achievements and to help stimulate their future learning.

We warmly welcome you to our vibrant and happy school. If you require any more information or would like to visit, please do not hesitate to contact us.

What others have to say...
Anne Vetch
Chair of Governors

The Governors are delighted with the latest OFSTED Inspection report and see it as evidence of the educational benefits that being part of a Federation have brought to this small rural school.
The standard of education our pupils receive, the commitment of our Executive Headteacher and staff, the emphasis we place on safety and behaviour together with our inclusive ethos have all been recognised in this fair and balanced Inspection report. However, we are not complacent and will continue our constant strive for improvement in Grassington Primary School and in other schools in our Federation.

Summer Concert ! Just to say a big thank you to everyone for the Summer Concert last night. It was fantastic! As parents, it is wonderful to see our children singing their hearts out and really enjoying the experience. I really don't know how you find the time to organise it all - but we are so pleased that the creative side of our children's education is being developed in this way. Thank you very much.

Our Christian Ethos...

Our 7Cs code encourages the children to achieve high moral standards through their concern and mutual respect for others.

Courage, Care, Co-operation, Confidence, Communication, Consideration and Courtesy.

We strive to uphold these values in everything we do and the children take responsibility for recognising and rewarding these values in each other.
