What makes West Heslerton CE unique?
We are a Forest School - lots of our learning takes place outside in fun ways so children don't realise they are learning!
Our children are taught to be very IT literate from an early age. All children, from 4 years old use iPads, with each child having their own iPad for use in school.
Children can join our pre-Reception class (part-time or full-time) following their 4th birthday.
All children in Pre-Reception may have cooked meals provided free of charge.
We teach children to be water confident, swim and life save. The national expectation for 11 year olds is to swim 25m. Our most recent swimming assessments show 11 year old pupils can swim an average of 680m.
We have amazing grounds and space, children can truly express themselves!
Learning is fun!
We have a maximum limit of 10 pupils per year group.

More about our school
Our dedicated staff provide a quality education for each individual child full of fun and exciting opportunities. Children from age 4 to 11 travel to us from local villages and from other areas to attend our school.
All staff at school look after each pupil taking care to know each individual and ensure they are safe and happy in our care. Our classes are small and have a teacher, a teaching assistant as well as other staff to support each child. All staff and helpers undergo background checks to ensure the safety of each child in our care.
Our spacious school is on one level. We have 2 large classrooms, each with their own cloakroom. We have a well-stocked library, exciting IT facilities and a range of resources to support learners of all ages and abilities. School is surrounded by gardens, play areas, a wildlife study area and a large playing field.
Our school was last inspected as ‘Outstanding’ in October 2014. Copies of Ofsted reports and church (diocese) inspection reports can be found using the links on the left of this page.
