At Crayke we welcome children, their parents and carers into a friendly, nurturing, hardworking and exciting environment where respect for others and positive attitudes towards work and behaviour are firmly embedded. Relationships throughout the school are fundamental to a positive ethos. We have a very skilled and supportive Governing Body who work in close partnership with the school community to ensure there is mutual respect and trust, as well as challenge, ambition and drive.

We are very proud of our well established partnership with St. Cuthbert’s Church. Together we ensure that children and families are central to everything we do in school; we enjoy watching children grow spiritually, morally and socially within a strong Christian ethos.

We offer a relevant and exciting, broad and balanced curriculum where children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and make informed choices about their learning. We ensure a wide range of experiences, especially through historical trips, music, sport and the performing arts. We consider the skills of communication, numeracy and literacy to be the foundation for our learning and we are proud of our standards and achievements.

We encourage all parents and carers to come in at every opportunity, whether it is to talk to teachers about their child’s progress, see their child achieve and perform, to be part of our social events or to discuss openly and honestly any concerns or difficulties their child may have during this first stage of their educational journey. We listen to the views of our pupils and parents and use them to shape the strategic direction of the school.
