A very warm welcome is extended to you and your children from Slingsby CommunityPrimary School. I am looking forward to a happy and effective partnership over the coming years. At Slingsby we have a very supportive governing body who give of their time voluntarily and also an incredibly hard working FOSS who organise many events for the children and the community.

We feel as a staff that it is important that as a parent/guardian you feel welcome in the school. Education is a partnership between home and school with a shared responsibility based on trust and understanding and the participation and co-operation of parents here at Slingsby

 is positively encouraged. A good relationship between school and home builds a child’s confidence, aids their learning and helps them to fulfil their potential in everything they do. We take a holistic approach to all we do. At Slingsby C P we never put a ceiling on learning. We encourage all children to aim high and challenge themselves if they are ready to do so. We foster a 'can do' culture in all we do. Our greatest achievement is when a child has done their best and tried their hardest as this is all you can ask of anyone.

This is a happy, vibrant school where all children are given the opportunity of learning in a caring, stimulating environment. Our aim is to give your children the opportunity to develop to their full potential. Slingsby is a small school with big ideas with the best interests of the children at its heart.

We work closely with the 11 small schools in our Howardian Alliance, moderating together, engaging in sports activities and having school swap days. This increases the opportunities for our children to make new friends and experience different settings. This helps with their transition to secondary school and with their self confidence.

Our welcome to you and your children is warm and ongoing and we invite you as parents/guardians to support and help us in our work. We operate an open door policy through which you may step at any time.

I am always willing to talk to parents at any mutual convenient time and look forward to meeting you.

Kind regards

Mrs Georgie Metcalfe

We are all guided by the Slingsby Values for Life: Respect, Honesty, Resilience, Expectations and Caring for Others
