Welcome to Gilberdyke Primary School
We are a large village school serving 300 children from Gilberdyke, Blacktoft and Yokefleet. We are located in the heart of the village and see ourselves as a focal point for children and families.
We believe that ‘mighty oaks from little acorns grow’ and that all our children will enjoy and embrace their journey from their first day as a ‘Little Acorn’ in Foundation Stage to the end of their primary career when they leave us as ‘Mighty Oaks’. The children are very much involved in school and take an active role and hands on approach to ‘doing the learning.’ Our children are vibrant, enthusiastic and take great pride in their school.
We value our partnership with parents and encourage them to take an active role in their child’s journey with us.
Our Vision for the school encapsulates our beliefs about not just the local community around us but the ever growing global community of our future:
Aspire Respect Achieve Belong
We strive to create a welcoming, safe place where all children, staff and visitors are valued and respected. We encourage a sense of purpose and a positive approach to learning where everyone works together with enthusiasm and confidence. We aim to nurture academic, personal, spiritual and social development in a caring and challenging environment so that all achieve their full potential.

We hope you enjoy exploring our new and expanding website. Please feel free to contact us for any further information.
