Welcome to Ninelands Primary School We love learning, particularly outdoors, and have a reputation for high academic results and outstanding pastoral care. We believe that children should work hard, but that education should be stimulating, enjoyable and exciting. We believe in good discipline and academic achievement but also in the education of the whole child and therefore offer experiences in the widest possible range of areas of study including the arts and outdoor learning. Our extensive grounds include an allotment, pond, wild area, two fields, three playgrounds and a fantastic new purpose built foundation area. We have a strong music tradition and a passion for creativity in all areas of the curriculum. 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 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. 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 are part of the Noctua School Aliiance and also such 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. For over 50 years we have worked in close partnership with our children and their families to ensure that everyone achieves success and enjoys their time with us.
