Long Marston Church of England Primary School

All Welcome at Village School Open Morning

Headteacher: Louise Flatters

Angram Road Long Marston

York YO26 7LR

Long Marston CE Primary School is opening its doors to prospective parents/carers and children for an Open Morning on Thursday 3rd October at 9.30am. The school is conveniently located just 10-15 minutes from York and Wetherby. Flexi-school options are available, and the school-run wrap around care service provides both before and after school care.

The Open Morning is a great opportunity to see the high quality, personalised learning offered at the school. The school has a strong sense of family and community, and can offer smaller than average class sizes. The school site has generous outdoor space including a woodland and pond area, which are used regularly for outdoor learning and ‘Woodland Schools’ sessions.

Children have the opportunity to take part in a wide range of curriculum opportunities including sports events with other local schools, residential visits and musical productions.

The school maintained its ‘Good’ rating from OFSTED in its most recent inspection in 2016 and achieved a ‘Good’ outcome in its 2017 SIAMs inspection.

Louise Flatters, Headteacher, explains; “Our school has a unique family ethos and provides a nurturing, caring environment for children to learn in. I’m really looking forward to meeting prospective parents and carers and sharing all the fantastic opportunities we can offer their children at Long Marston”.

Any parents/carers interested in visiting the school who are unable to attend the Open Morning are very welcome to contact the school on 01904 738352 or admin@longmarston.n-yorks.sch.uk to arrange an alternative time to visit.
