Starting at a new school is an important time for both children and their parents/carers. We welcome parents/carers as partners in their children’s education. A successful partnership depends on close co-operation, support and trust between home and school and a recognition that we have a shared responsibility. We operate an open door policy where parents/carers can raise worries, ask questions and share information freely. Please do not hesitate to come and see us if you need to discuss something with us.
All our talented staff strive to maintain a caring, safe, happy, purposeful and stimulating environment where each child feels respected and valued and is encouraged to achieve their true potential. We work very closely with our neighbouring primary schools and Garforth Academy, our feeder high school, to ensure high quality experiences and education for all families in the Garforth community.
It is important that you choose a school that you feel is right for your child and your family. Please arrange a visit with us and judge for yourself, we look forward to meeting you.
