Glusburn Primary and Nursery school is a popular primary school situated in the heart of Glusburn and Cross Hills. Over a number of years we have expanded to 2 forms of entry (2 classes per year group) in all year groups from Reception to year 6. We also have a popular nursery taking children from the term after they turn three. During this journey we have made significant improvements to the school buildings and grounds, the most recent being a new block which houses our year 3 pupils and an amazing amount of outdoor space for our children to use.
We have a strong team of staff who are committed to providing a high-quality learning environment where children can achieve, enjoy and excel in all areas of school life. At Glusburn we are a family. We strive to always be Ready, Respectful and Safe.
Teachers and support staff all work hard to maintain a safe and happy school where children are encouraged to become enthusiastic and lifelong learners. Children are valued as members of the school community and our Behaviour Policy places emphasis on celebrating success and taking responsibility for our actions. The school offers an enriched, broad and balanced curriculum and strives to give children lots of opportunities in music, arts and sport as well as excelling academically.
Our pupils have a great start in our nursery and reception unit and our staff build on this throughout their years with us. If you are looking for a school place for your child, please do contact us for a look around.
