Yorkley is a Community School of roughly 145 children in a beautiful rural setting, benefiting from updated and extended facilities. In November 2016 Ofsted graded the school ‘Good’. Children are the heart of our school and their thoughts and opinions are key to helping drive our school forward.
I have had the pleasure of leading Yorkley School since April 2012 and know that together, as a team, we all work hard to make the school a welcoming, secure and exciting place not only for our pupils but their families and the wider community too. Parents describe Yorkley as “Simply Superb, a happy, ambitious, friendly school where children love learning and strive to excel.”
Our motto is “Valuing learning, learning to Value”. Our values are Partnership, Perseverance, Patience, Practice and Pride. These link together to give children the “Power” to achieve and develop into responsible citizens.
Our committed and dedicated staff ensure learning is inspiring, challenging and fun. Children are taught by dedicated and experienced staff in mixed age classes. We pride ourselves on being a caring school where our children’s welfare is important as we believe that happy, motivated children are successful children.
Standards at Yorkley meet and excel the national averages and children leave well prepared for secondary school. We give our children the opportunities to achieve their full potential academically, creatively, physically and socially, preparing each one for the challenges of the 21st century.
Choosing a school for your child is one of the most important decisions you make for them early on in their life. Limited places are still available in some classes so it is important that you get this right and I would encourage you to come, get a feel for our school and relax in the knowledge when your child joins Yorkley, they will be happy and flourish.
Mrs Kate Burke, Head Teacher
