Welcome to Menston Primary School. This is a warm, friendly and successful school full of brilliant people (most of them under 12 years old!). Our children are fabulous. They care about their friends, their school and their world, and they work hard to learn and to teach each other interesting, useful things. They particularly like our commitment to providing regular opportunities for Learning Outside the Classroom in all year groups - be that running the Daily Mile, pond dipping, minibeast hunting and den building or just being outdoors and learning about the natural world. Whilst doing all this they achieve very high standards. The children have taught us that the school should be ‘Making our World a Better Place.’ So that is what we work together to do - every day.
Please contact the School Office on 01943 873180 if you would like to learn more about our school and to arrange a visit.
Open Mornings and Open Afternoon for Children Starting in Reception in September 2022
We are holding two Open Mornings and one Open Afternoon in November for families to come to see our wonderful school. Parent only sessions will be held on Monday 8th and Tuesday 9th November between 9:30 and 11:30am. Parents and their children can visit on Saturday 13th November between 12:00 and 2:00pm. As we are still operating under a number of Covid-19 restrictions, we are taking bookings for all of these events. Please contact our main school office on 01943 873180 to book a visit. We hope that you enjoy exploring our school website in the meantime – we would encourage you to watch both videos on this page, which give you a great introduction to our school. One video was recorded last year when Mr Jones was the Headteacher. This video is currently being updated and edited, but we know that it will give you a really good overview of our school.

Please click here to view our Outbreak Management Plan.
Things we can all do to help us all stay safe:
- Carry on being very vigilant and keep checking for symptoms.
- If in doubt – be cautious, keep your child off and get them tested.
- Arrange for just one adult to drop off or pick up children.
- Continue to use the full 10-minute windows (8.45-8:55am and 3.15-3.25pm) for drop off/pick up. Avoid arriving earlier than this so that we do not have groups of people queuing on the pavements.
- Keeping moving and leave the school site quickly.
- Reduce congestion near school entrances or classroom doors by encouraging older children to enter and leave school independently.
We thank you for your help with this.
