Welcome to Gilberdyke Primary School
Situated at the heart of a strong community, our school brings families together from Gilberdyke and surrounding villages, placing children at the centre of everything we do.
Our aim is simple; to enable every child to thrive and shine. Strong relationships are fundamental to this. Our restorative approach underpins the pastoral support we offer and supports children in learning how to work effectively alongside one another.
The carefully considered curriculum which is relevant, engaging and flexible prepares children well for academic success and places great emphasis on every child achieving the skills and characteristics necessary for success in all aspects of wider life. Reflection, resilience and risk-taking are explicitly taught as part of our mission to foster independent learners for life who reach their full potential. Our vision encapsulates our beliefs about not only the local community around us but also the ever-growing global community of our future.
Staff and pupils alike are incredibly proud of the caring, warm and supportive feel our school offers. We constantly strive to nurture happy, positive young people who feel valued, safe and confident to tackle next steps and new things. Pupil voice and proactivity are integral to the life of our school. Parents/families and the wider community are openly invited and actively encouraged to contribute to school life and, wherever and whenever possible, share in the journey and successes of our children through this stage of their lifelong journey.
