North Yorkshire Schools X Country Event
Huge success - first, second, fourth, ninth and eleventh places for Leavening children. Four go forward to the final at Catterick. Well done everyone!
Welcome to our school
Welcome to our fabulous school – known as ‘North Yorkshire’s best kept secret’ – and thank you for showing an interest.
Judged in 2012 as ‘good’ by Ofsted with an ‘outstanding and exceptionally rich curriculum’, Leavening Community Primary School also has exceptional outdoor learning opportunities and sports facilities, small class sizes, offers a range of after school clubs and combines dynamic teaching with excellent pastoral care. Our thriving nursery and Early Years provision caters for children aged 3 to 11 years.
I have had the pleasure of being the head teacher here since September 2012 and have to say that Leavening Community Primary School is the perfect village school. A real sense of community and belonging exists here. I am excited to be building on the fantastic opportunities that our children already enjoy, ensuring their childhoods are further enriched through excellence in learning and outstanding care.
I would warmly welcome visits to the school so you can see for yourself just how wonderful it really is. Thank you.
Sian Mitchell, Headteacher
