Welburn Community Primary School

The school serves a large rural area, which includes the communities of Welburn, Bulmer, Whitwell, Huttons Ambo, Crambe, Crambeck, the Castle Howard Estate, Barton Le Willows and Barton Hill. Children from areas outside the immediate catchments area may also apply to attend this school.

The main school building was built in 1841. An extension was completed in summer 2004 and the very attractive, light and airy main building now contains two classrooms, a large hall, kitchen, library, staff room, reception area, an office, and cloakrooms. There is also a temporary classroom unit.

The school stands in its own attractive grounds surrounded by a large playing field and has wonderful views over the Castle Howard Estate. In 2009, we had a new adventure playground installed for older pupils. Also, the Foundation/Key Stage 1 class playground was extended and new equipment installed.

We have approximately 90 pupils at the school - an ideal size for maintaining a warm, family atmosphere in which every child can develop to their full potential.

At present there are four classes, arranged vertically, in which children are allowed to progress at their own speed;

Class One Ms Lewis
Reception and Year 1 (ages 4 - 6) Mrs Dawson / Miss Patel
   
Class Two

Mrs Jackson / Miss Hatfield

Years 2 & 3 (ages 6 - 8) Mrs Dring
   
Class Three Miss Gardonyi
Year 4 (ages 8 – 9) Mrs Leppington
   
Class Four Mrs Thomson / Mrs Jones
Years 5 & 6 (ages 9 - 11) Mrs Hart
