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.
We aim for all children to achieve at least 97% attendance. This means that children should only be absent from school when they are too ill to attend.
Please make all medical appointments outside of the school day wherever possible and please do not book family holidays in term time. Our term dates are available on the ‘Parents’ section of this website.
Our school gates close at 08:55 am, so please ensure children arrive at school before this time.
Please report all sickness absences to the school office before 8:30 am. We have a 24 hour absence line 01943 873180 where you can leave a message to let us know what the reason for absence is. If your child has sickness or diarrhoea they must be kept off school for 48 hours after the last bout of illness.
