Leeming RAF Community Primary is a friendly and positive school where staff do go the extra mile to help children and families settle quickly and feel a sense of belonging. We are here to work with you to meet the needs of your child and to be a supportive part of the wider community. We are a North Yorkshire Local Authority School pleasantly situated within the Station perimeter; we enjoy very positive links with other local schools, services and agencies provided through North Yorkshire Local Authority and links on the station itself.
We cater for children between the ages of four and eleven, the majority of whom are from Service families (both Army and RAF); most live within walking distance of school. We also serve children and families from our wider community of villages outside the station. We meet each child as an individual and adjust our work to ensure they progress and grow in partnership with parents.
We are very proud of our school; we have an excellent staff team and great facilities: 10 classrooms, a well-equipped computer room, a library, a spacious hall and plenty of additional teaching spaces for small groups. We have extensive school grounds including an excellent outdoor learning area for our younger children, an exciting wildlife garden and pond, a gardening area, and a sensory garden.
We are committed to being a highly inclusive school. At the time of writing we have approximately 240 children on roll. We place high priority on the pastoral, personal, social and emotional development of pupils as well as providing essential academic challenge and support. We develop learning and skills through an active, enquiry based curriculum designed to challenge and enthuse children. We encourage them to develop as rounded and thoughtful individuals keen to do their best, take part and contribute. We place a high priority on sport, adventure and active learning outside the classroom, exploring our grounds, local opportunities and through regular trips further afield.
I hope that you and your child will be very happy as a part of our school community. For more information please do call school and if possible make an appointment to visit.
