In a democratic society which prizes equality of opportunity, the curriculum should be based first and foremost on the knowledge we consider all young people should have the access to and begin to acquire during the school years – Michael Young

Welcome to Leyburn Primary School’s website. 

Inspired to be the best that we can be!

Leyburn Primary Schoolvalues  being at the heart of the  local  community.  We work and learn together to developallaspects of the child, giving them the skills tobeconfident young people, so that they are able to play an active role as adults inmodern society.The Department for Education (DfE) recognises that: “in order to help their children succeed, schools have a role to play in supporting them to be resilient and mentally healthy”. We try to make sure that our school is a place for children and their families to experience a nurturing and supportive environment which helps to develop their self-esteem and gives positive experiences for overcoming adversity and building resilience. Children are trusted andgiven the freedom to learn within the boundaries of what is expected from them. We aimto providethe bestacademic,social, moral, spiritual and cultural educationpossible and we expect all involved with the school to contribute to this. 

In May 2017, Leyburn chose to convert to an academy, joining the multi academy trust YCAT (Yorkshire Collaborative Academy Trust) which includes Askwith Primary School, Bilton Grange Primary School, Hawes Primary School and Lothersdale Primary School. In 2023, Bradleys Both Primary School and Darley and Summerbridge Primary School Federation also joined. As a MAT, we believe in the principles of collaborative practice in the school-led system as the most effective way to raise achievement and foster life-long learning for children and adults.
