Parent/Carer Reviews

“We love Skelton Community Primary School. There is something very special about village schools and Skelton is no exception. It really is like a big family where everyone knows everyone else and with teachers who genuinely care about the children and want them to have fun too! We're so lucky to live within walking distance of this fantastic little school. Very happy with our choice and the support our child has had so far.” (Parents of a Year 5 child)


“In Nursery, our girls were allowed to explore the new environment through play. They were very well looked after by their dedicated teaching assistant, who developed a very warm relationship with them. They enjoyed going to nursery and loved interacting with the older boys and girls. As a small school, they were known by all the teachers and pupils. They were looked after by various older pupils and the teachers kept a close eye on them. They always felt safe and loved in the school. The transition to reception has been very easy. Their reception teacher is lovely and knows the girls inside out. The small class size has been a real bonus and their reading and writing has come on in leaps and bounds. They are always up to interesting and exciting new things. They love going to school and having a lot of fun.” (Parents of Reception children)

“An amazing village school with first class teachers. The whole `community and family feel’ in this school is fantastic. My children are so happy here.” (Parent of children in Nursery & Year 2)
“The school itself is small and this makes it feel comfortable and safe even for the smallest children. There are always fun events on, such as school discos, fairs and non-uniform days. There are a number of extra-curricular clubs which mean that she is enjoying learning French and improving her gymnastic skills.” (Parent of a Reception child)
“I would highly recommend this school to any prospective parents. It is warm, friendly and a wonderful place for children to develop and grow – we love the school!” (Parent of a Reception child)
