Chair of Governor's welcome
Hello, on behalf of the Governing Body, the staff and the children I would like to offer a sincere and warm welcome to Glusburn Community Primary School. I hope that you will find all the information you need on this website and that it offers you a friendly introduction to our school. Should you need any more information, or if you have any questions, please contact the school and we will be happy to help. I hope that your child has many memorable learning experiences with us and I wish them every success as they begin their learning journey at Glusburn Community Primary School.
Firstly, thank you for viewing our website. As a parent I know that choosing the right school for your child can be a daunting task; let me assure you that in choosing our school, your child will be getting the very best start to their learning journey in education. Our school is home to around 300 children and over 40 staff. It is the largest within the cluster of seven schools in the South Craven area. We can be found in a beautiful part of the country, with a rolling hillside providing the backdrop to our well situated school; located en route to Lancashire, whilst a short distance from Skipton and Keighley. We have a large playing field to the rear, a substantial outdoor area for the Early Years Foundation Stage, an outdoor classroom, a gardening area, a traversing wall, a separate playground for each Key Stage and a conservation area known as the ‘millennium garden'. We have seen an increase in pupils joining our school over the past number of years; indeed we've already enlisted pupils for our nursery who've only just been born! I look forward to meeting you and your child soon.
