From the Head

Welcome to Gillamoor CE Primary School

Gillamoor C of E Primary School aims to create a secure and happy school community in which, to the best of his or her ability, each child acquires a firm foundation in all aspects of their development, following the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum and the National Curriculum. We believe we are an open, friendly school and members of staff are always willing to talk to parents and would encourage you to visit the school. We aim to educate the “whole child” and pupils will be encouraged to develop lively, enquiring minds, a sense of self-esteem and the self-discipline that comes from working in an orderly school environment. The education of children cannot happen in isolation and we believe the partnership between home and school is very important.

As a Church of England foundation School we have strong links with the local church. We are committed to maintaining a happy, secure and stimulating learning community in which children learn to live first and foremost as children rather than future adults. We expect all members of our school community to transmit Christian values and attitudes that foster self esteem and respect for others; and develop caring and enquiring minds.

The school was built in 1876. From 1 September 1999 the name of the school was changed to Gillamoor Church of England (Voluntary Controlled) School. Gillamoor is an attractive, thriving village, nestled on the edge of the North York Moors, and predominantly farming community. At the heart of the village, physically and spiritually is Gillamoor School. The school is in close proximity to the market towns of Kirkbymoorside, Helmsley and Pickering. Our admission limit is normally 7, but this figure can be negotiated to compensate for changing birth rates and families moving into the catchment area. Most children come from Bransdale, Farndale, Fadmoor, and Gillamoor. Many children also come from out of catchment such as Nawton and Kirkbymoorside.

Choosing the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions parents ever make, and there will no doubt be many questions you will want to ask.  I hope this website will provide an answer to them, but if you require further information please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
