Head Teacher’s Welcome

Welcome to our school website. All information presented here is available in a paper format. Please contact the school office if you would like to request a paper copy of any documents.

Appleton Wiske Community Primary School is at the heart of the village and surrounding areas; there is a vibrant family atmosphere at our school with a caring and inclusive ethos. We focus on the needs of each individual child and work together to meet those needs in an exciting and well-resourced learning environment.

Since my appointment as Head Teacher in September 2016, I have spent a good deal of time getting to know the families, pupils, staff, governors and members of the community in order to develop positive relationships across the school. It is essential that we build strong partnerships so that we may work together to meet the social, emotional, academic and personal needs of every child in our care.

We aim to provide the best possible education for your children and hope you will share our high expectations, particularly in behaviour and achievement. 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.

If you have any queries or would like to discuss any issues, please do not hesitate to contact me.

We look forward to working with you.

Neil Clark

Head Teacher
