Melsonby Methodist Primary School is a thriving school situated in North Yorkshire serving Melsonby and surrounding villages. The school has been at the heart of the local community for more than 140 years, it has been substantially refurbished and recently extended. It is a rural school with the benefit of small class sizes and high staff to pupil ratios.

Our dedicated and professional staff focus on each pupil as an individual, through working in partnership with parents and carers, we focus on every child’s strengths to ensure they achieve the very best they can. We encourage Christian values, which promote a caring, loving and respectful climate for learning and daily school life. We want all pupils to be successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens.

The school has an active and supportive Governing Body and Parent Teacher Association. There are numerous links into the community; these have benefits both in developing the pupils’ sense of belonging and personal responsibility and also enhancing the local community.

We are committed to providing the very best in education and social skills for all pupils, and seek to continually improve our school. We hope our website provides you with an insight into life at our school. Prospective parents and pupils are warmly invited to visit the school, to meet the staff and children.

Education is about making a real positive difference, providing every opportunity for all learners to be successful, for us to celebrate achievements together. We would be privileged if you would like to come to, ‘learn and grow’ with us!
