Many of the restrictions from the past year have been lifted. The children will no longer have to remain in bubbles and will be able to mix as they did before. If you suspect that your child has Covid please keep them at home and get them tested. More details can be found in the links below.
Our school is situated in the attractive village of Carlton Miniott close to the market town of Thirsk. We are a happy and caring school where staff and governors work together to promote a family atmosphere where all feel safe, secure and listened to.
Our school is part of the Elevate Multi-Academy Trust and works closely with many of the local Primary Schools. We aim to provide a stimulating and productive environment where children enjoy to learn. As well as teaching the National Curriculum we provide a wealth of experiences in and out of school which give opportunities for children to develop their skills, whatever their level of ability. We are very supported by the involvement of parents in our school and an enthusiastic Friends of School which hold many events throughout the year.
This website will provide you with lots of information about our school but we would be very pleased to show you round so don’t hesitate to contact the school and make an appointment. I look forward to meeting and working with you.
