It is with great pleasure I welcome you to Gayton Primary School. We are very proud of our school and its community.
Gayton Primary is a happy and welcoming school. We promote a family atmosphere, where each person is actively encouraged to show care and interest in the welfare of others. This is reflected in the attitude of our children and all those connected with the school, as well as being central to all school policies and values. Our mission is to nuture ‘positive minds’ so as to create ‘positive futures’ for all of our pupils.
As a school, we promote high standards of achievement and attainment for all our pupils and encourage them to become creative and critical learners. We want them to embrace the skills that will allow them to thrive in a rapidly-changing world, while being aware of their rights and responsibilities to ensure the well-being of others.
We offer a stimulating and imaginative curriculum which is designed to engage, challenge and develop curiosity and a love of learning for all our children. Our school’s Vision Statement of “…seek to provide a well-balanced education which will develop and extend the whole child, ensuring the highest standards of attainment and personal growth…” reflects our commitment to improve the provision for all of our pupils.
We hope that you will find this website informative and helpful in providing you with a real feel for our happy school. If you have any queries, please do get in contact with us.

Thank you! 😁Still work in progress and we have so many exciting plans but being part of @OPAL_CIC really has helped us to reflect and consider the play opportunities we are providing and our children are benefitting so much as are our staff! @ludicology @OPAL_CIC
Hats off to @GaytonPrimary developing a rich and diverse play environment for the children. A huge sandpit with a boat and natural mounds providing a sense of enclosure and enhanced opportunities for play. Love it. #opalschools
Huge thanks to our PTA for funding our sandpit and to the staff who made this a reality for our children. This is such a hive of wonderful play opportunities for all our children @ludicology @OPAL_CIC
Well done to our headteacher award and merit award winners this week. 🏆🏆🏆
