About Us

headteacherWelcome to the Yorke Mead Primary School website and thank you for your interest in our school.

I hope this website will give you a clear idea of our vision, aims and values and how we aim to achieve these.

Yorke Mead is a happy school where every child is valued and where all of our children are cared for and encouraged. We value everyone’s successes, both in school and in the wider community.

Developing confidence, motivation and independent learning skills is essential in the primary school years and as a teacher and a head teacher this has always been extremely important to me. It is these things that will enable children to succeed in their life academically, personally and socially.

“Bringing learning to life” is our school motto. We believe in the importance of placing emphasis on achieving high standards in literacy and numeracy whilst also ensuring the children experience a broad, rich and varied curriculum. The children at Yorke Mead are enthusiastic learners. We strive to make activities challenging, engaging and fun; children love to learn!

Children will always learn best when there is a strong and close partnership between home and school. We value this partnership and welcome parents into school.

If you are viewing this website as a prospective parent, I understand that choosing a school is an important decision, so I would welcome the opportunity to meet you, answer your questions and show you what we have to offer. If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact the school office.
