About Us

Welcome to the Sledmere Primary School website

We hope that it will provide you with useful information, give you a flavour of our school and help you to see what makes Sledmere such a special place.

Our mission statement is ‘Be the best you can be!’ and everyone in our school is keen to ensure that all our children are given all the educational opportunities to enable them to reach the maximum of their potential.

As a school we work hard together to achieve and maintain high standards in all that we do.  Our team of staff sets and expects a high standard of work and behaviour from each child.  We work together to promote a positive attitude to work and learning in our school.  Our pupils are encouraged to do their very best in all aspects of school life and we value and encourage good manners, effort and success.  We foster a happy, caring, calm yet vibrant atmosphere where children want to learn and are keen to come to school each day.  This stimulating climate provides opportunities for each child to grow in self-esteem, develop friendships and succeed as an individual by learning independence and respect for others.

The three elements of partnership between children, parents and school are central to our philosophy and vision for our school.  We believe strongly that the education of all children lies in this partnership and that close co-operation between home and school is essential for each child to feel secure, gain confidence and meet with success in their school and later life.  There are many opportunities for parents to come in to school, work with their children, see them perform and discuss their progress in learning.  We operate an open-door policy, so if you are a parent in our school you are always welcome to come and talk to me or a member of our staff if you have a question or a concern.

We are proud of our school and aim to continue its commitment to excellence.  Within the Learning Link MAT (, we work with Dudley Wood Primary School, Netherbrook Primary School and Kates Hill Community Primary School.  We believe that this collaboration will make a lasting difference to the children staff and communities that we all serve.

We take children from 3 years of age into our Nursery until the children leave at the end of Year 6.  Our numbers are rising as the school has been extended, but we offer a very personalised and nurturing environment in which children can aspire to achieve.  If you would like to find out more about Sledmere or like your child to come to our school, please ring 01384 818425 and speak to one of friendly office staff or email

We look forward to a long, happy and successful partnership with you and your child in your child’s education.
