Welcome to The Grewelthorpe C of E Primary School





 It is important that our children BELIEVE in themselves and the possibilities available to them, to LEARN by embracing challenge, questioning the world around them, reflecting and not being afraid to take risks so that they FLOURISH as unique individuals and the role models of the future.

Our vision is embedded within our chosen Bible verse which comes from I Corinthians 13v13.
We have chosen 1 Corinthians 13v3 as Faith, Hope and Love are essential to Christian belief. For Christians, faith is a complete trust and confidence in God. Christians have hope and have a confident expectation for God’s purposes to be fulfilled. Through Corinthians, Paul teaches that love is the most important gift we have been given, as God's love for the world is unconditional, generous, 
unending and unfailing.
Although we are a church school, the values we take from 1 Corinthians 13 are also applicable to those who are from a different faith or belong to no faith group at all.  Faith allows us to have complete trust and confidence in our schools; the people within them and the things we do. We want our children to have hope for their future, to nurture the feelings and desire for something positive to happen. We want our children to understand that we are all unique individuals which make up a school family and community which through love, allows us to care for one another, celebrate diversity, be patient and kind and treats others how we would like to be treated.

We want all the children in our school to experience our core values of FAITHHOPE and LOVE so that they can Believe, Learn and Flourish.

Welcome to Grewelthorpe CE Primary School

Whether you are a parent or a visitor to our school, I‘m sure you will find us a warm and welcoming community. Our school is located close to the city of Ripon in beautiful North Yorkshire countryside.

It is a place where young children can arrive at 3 years old and grow into self-confident 11 year olds ready to go forward with their educational lives.

A lot happens in between, and we pride ourselves on giving the very best opportunities for children to learn both socially, physically and emotionally as well as intellectually.

Schools are much more than places for children to learn. They should be the focal point of the community and places where life -long learning can take place as well. We regard the partnership of parents and school as being of the highest importance.

Many parents have taken up the opportunity to learn about school life through attending special assemblies, class outings, helping regularly in classrooms and of course taking up places on courses or workshops that we run for parents. A sense of family is very important to us and we want our children, parents, teachers, helpers and members of the wider community to work together. We are proud to be a Church of England school and our Christian ethos underpins the life and work of the school.

Our partnership with Fountains CE Primary School is an exciting development and children will benefit from co-operative working and through this we will sustain the high quality education which exists.
