Our School

We are a small, friendly, village primary school in North Yorkshire, serving the village of Saxton and its surrounding area. A school has existed on our site since the mid nineteenth century, but there is a proud tradition of education in Saxton stretching back before that.

We currently have 82 pupils on roll. We have three classes - Willow Tree with children in Reception and Year 1 and Year 2. Sycamore Tree with children in Years 3 and 4. Maple Tree with children in Years 5 and 6.

Our children all work very hard and achieve highly. Many join us in Reception and stay throughout their Primary school life. From our school, they transfer to Sherburn High School , Tadcaster Grammar School, and other Secondary and Independent schools in the surrounding area.


The aims of the school are:

To be a happy, safe, healthy and friendly school which all children will enjoy attending
To help children to live together in a community, encouraging care for others as well as themselves so that they become responsible, independent people
To create an environment in which mistakes can be made and learned from
To release the potential of every individual to enable them to reach the highest level of achievement of which they are capable and so lay the foundations for future life
To give every child the experience of success and a sense of personal value
To broaden horizons and help children grow spiritually, socially, academically and personally
