School Information

About Ainderby Steeple Church of England Primary School

We are very proud of our school, especially the caring and friendly children who come here and make our school so special. There is a family atmosphere helped by children having responsibility for one another. Children in Year 6 are given a 'buddy' in Reception class and they look after and care for that child throughout their first year in school.

At Christmas, older pupils sing and play carols and decorate the tree at Northallerton's Abbeyfield Home; throughout the year our children work alongside pupils from the Dales School; children care for the school gardens, sowing planting and weeding, and all children work to raise funds for their chosen charity.

Our community links are important, including those with St. Helen's Church, Ainderby Steeple and St Radegund's, Scruton. We encourage parents and grandparents to work with school staff and see the exciting things happening in our school. We value the links we have with the pre-school which is on site and the secondary schools to which our older children move.

We aim to make a child's primary school days exciting and rewarding so that they look forward to each new school day. We have high academic standards and have high expectations of our children but we also value the importance of creativity. We regularly welcome people to come to our school such as theatre companies, representatives from other churches and religions, visiting musicians and sports groups so that our children receive a broad and rich curriculum.

We value the importance of each child as an individual and encourage them in all that they do. The school provides a supportive and caring environment and this contributes towards our children becoming confident in their own skills and abilities.

If you would like to know more about our school or have any questions, please call in to see us and have a look around.
