As Headteacher of this happy, dynamic school I feel proud and privileged to work in partnership with the pupils and families of the New York community.

At New York our aim is to provide a stimulating, aspirational safe and secure environment in which children have a voice and are encouraged to participate and contribute towards their own development. We believe that this is best achieved when families take an interest and are involved in their child’s education through supporting what their child does in school. Opportunities for learning are exciting and ambitious, set within real life context.

Through rich learning we develop pupil interest and curiosity promoting imagination and investigation. We know our children and work consistently and flexibly to meet their needs. We provide an inclusive curriculum that inspires and interests encouraging pupils to aim high and succeed in school and beyond. We create a family, community atmosphere where everyone is valued, cared about and respected. We have high standards and expectations both in behaviour and work – we have no doubt that our children can meet these standards.

Jill Shaw | Headteacher

New York Primary School is fully inclusive and consistently develops traditional values of responsibility, kindness, independence and good manners.

Our caring and engaging environment promotes pupil’s self-esteem and prepares them for the world in which they live. As incremental learners New York pupils enjoy challenge and opportunity, they do not fear mistakes but see them as a route to learning!

Our News

We invite all our children to ‘Come as you are leave at your best’. With heads held high and a smile on their faces our staff and pupils are proud to be a New Yorker!
