Welcome back and hello to our new starters: children and staff! Goodness me, your new uniforms look great, just look at the shine on those shoes! Remember, best handwriting on the first clean page (and on all of the other pages too, please!).

Welcome to Glusburn Community Primary School

Photograph Day 21st September 2016

 

In order to keep everyone in the 'picture', and not in the 'darkroom', or in a blur, here are the arrangements for the day, a letter with a reply slip will be sent out to parents this evening (19.09.16).

 

There are 4 choices: 

 

  1. If you would like a photograph taken of your child/children with siblings who are not already in school please arrive by 8:00am; these photos will be taken between 8:00am and 9:00am in the school hall. Please complete the reply slip – please be snappy and return by Wednesday morning. 

  2. If you would like a photograph taken of siblings where they already attend our school, please complete and return the reply slip, quick as a flash!

  3. If you'd rather not have a photograph taken at all, please select this option in the reply slip.

  4. If you would simply just like your child's individual photograph taken, you do not need to do anything, each class will be called in turn and their photographs taken

    With over 370 children plus babies and toddlers, it's surely going to develop into a very busy day, which will zoom! 

    Apologies for the over exposure of photograph puns - will keep things in focus next time...

 

 

Message from the Headteacher: Richard Hunt

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 350 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 our Early Years children , 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.
