Welcome to Slingsby Community Primary School

Here on the website you can find useful information about our school community. We hope our website will be a useful tool for both existing pupils’ families – with links to events, newsletters, policies and much more – and those who are interested in finding out more about our school.

Slingsby Community Primary School is a place where we strive to provide a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all our pupils. All of our teachers and staff work extremely hard and are committed to providing your children with the best possible learning environment and high quality teaching. Our close links with the community strengthen the friendly and caring family atmosphere within the school. We follow the Slingsbby Values for Life, providing us all with skills to survive in the modern world.

We have had many changes in 2013/14 when our current Head Teacher started at the school, which I’m pleased to say have all had a massively positive impact on the children’s learning.

Changes in teaching staff and headship can sometimes be unsettling for a small school but at Slingsby this has not been the case. The children have gone from strength to strength in their confidence and ambition.

We now have a really fantastic, positive and forward thinking team who are working very hard indeed to continue the growth and success of this amazing village school.

I look forward to meeting you.

Mrs Sophie Wigby Ashurst.
