Welcome to our Schools
Welcome to the website of Reeth and Gunnerside Primary Schools. Together we educate the children of Swaledale from the age of 3 to 11 years. Located in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, we have a fantastic learning environment on our doorstep that provides superb opportunities for first hand learning, complimented by great facilities within the schools. We are very much at the heart of the community, which enriches our curriculum, supports learning and adds relevance to what we do. I can't think of a better place to go to school!
It is our aim to ensure that all pupils achieve their full potential academically, while also developing holistically to become well rounded individuals ready for the next step of education, and for life. As a school we strive to meet the needs of individual learners and we know that an effective partnership between pupils, parents and the school is essential to achieve this aim.
Should you have any queries or wish to discuss any aspect of school life, please do get in touch - we'll do all we can to help.
I look forward to meeting and working with you.
Our Mission Statement
Our mission is to provide an inspiring and supportive environment in which our pupils thrive, academically, personally and physically. To find out more about our ethos and values, view our full mission statement.
We are a member of the Swaledale Alliance, a school partnership of 55 primary schools and 1 secondary school based across North Yorkshire. The Alliance was established in September 2012 and in March 2013 received Teaching School status as a cohort 3 teaching school. As a member school, we work with other schools in the Alliance, sharing good practice and professional development opportunities to improve outcomes for all our pupils.
Our schools are also part of the Wensleydale Cluster of Schools, comprising seven other primary schools (Bainbridge, Askrigg, West Burton, Hawes, Leyburn, Middleham, Spennithorne) and one secondary school (The Wensleydale School, Leyburn). We work very closely, sharing expertise and through collaborative practice provide shared opportunities including a comprehensive schedule of sporting fixtures and subject specific curriculum events.
