Head Teacher’s Welcome

Our vision is to be a welcoming, friendly and caring inclusive village school, which is committed to working in partnership with Parents, Governors and the Church to enable pupils to develop a life-long passion for learning.

“Pupils flourish in this inclusive school. The strong Christian ethos permeates all policies and practice.”

On behalf of the staff and governors, I would like to welcome you to Dishforth Church of England Primary School website!

Dishforth C of E is a small, friendly village school, situated in the North Yorkshire village of Dishforth. The school offers small class sizes, high quality teaching and excellent pastoral care.

At Dishforth School, we are committed to providing a safe, secure and stimulating learning environment in which children will be happy, enjoy learning, and develop positive relationships with others.  Our vision is for academic excellence whilst promoting the moral, cultural, spiritual, social and physical development of our pupils. We will strive to make our school welcoming, open and friendly with a positive ethos where the views of the children and parents are valued

We are a fully inclusive school and strive to ensure equality of opportunity for all our pupils.  Our aim is that all children are supported to fulfil their potential in all aspects of the curriculum.  We believe a close partnership between home and school is central to achieving this and look forward to working with you and your child throughout their time at Dishforth CE Primary School.

This website aims to give you an overview of the school, as well as providing regular updates and information for both parents and pupils.

We hope that you enjoy your visit to the Dishforth C of E website. If you would like further information or would like to come and visit us, please contact our school administrator, Mrs Clark on 01845 577206 or e-mail: admin@dishforth.n-yorks.sch.uk. Paper copies of the information on our website may be requested from the school office.


I look forward to meeting you and your child and to welcoming you to our school!
