A warm welcome from our TEAM
Appleton Wiske Community Primary School is a small rural school in a village setting with a caring and inclusive ethos. We focus on the needs of each individual child and as a team of professionals work together to meet those needs in an exciting and well-resourced learning environment.
Our close collaboration with a range of neighbouring settings and skilled professionals ensures seamless care with adults who have a wealth of knowledge and understanding of children and their development and learning. This reflects our school vision of TEAM.
In our recent Ofsted inspection, the school was judged to be GOOD and as one Year 6 pupil described our school:-
Welcome letter to parents
It gives me great pleasure introducing myself as the new Head Teacher of Appleton Wiske Community Primary School. I have thoroughly enjoyed my first day with your wonderful children and staff and have been made to feel very welcome already. The school is at the heart of the village and I can see that there is a real family atmosphere here. As a father of two boys, and from my experiences as a Deputy Headteacher, I appreciate the responsibility that my staff and I have in providing the highest standard of teaching and learning in all areas.
This term, I intend to get to know the families, pupils, staff, governors and members of the community in order to develop positive relationships across the school. This will enable us to form strong partnerships so that we may work together to meet the social, emotional, academic and personal needs of every child in our care. I am looking forward to working with you to ensure the best possible education for your children and hope you will share our high expectations, particularly in behaviour and achievement.
In the meantime, if you have any queries or would like to discuss any issues, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Thank you for your commitment and support.
Mr Neil Clark
