About Us

We are a small school of 52 children in the beautiful North Yorkshire village of Saxton near Tadcaster.

We are proud to be a Church of England primary school. Our vision is extremely important to us and is at the heart of everything we do: Everyone who spends time learning and growing at Saxton, becomes a successful individual with the courage, compassion and creativity to make a difference in the future. We are respectful of God’s world, working together to create a loving and caring community.

We aim to achieve “Good people, doing well” (Titus 3:14 – Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order to provide for urgent needs and not live unproductive lives). We model strong Christian values, while at the same time we respect and value those of other faiths and none.

This is a happy, friendly school where we have high standards in everything we do and where all children can access an exciting curriculum.  Learning is fun but challenging and we aim to meet the specific learning needs of every child so that they can all achieve to the best of their ability. As a result, our children achieve very high outcomes and are ready for the next stage in their educational journey.

Children are taught in three mixed age classes, Willow (FS/Y1/Y2), Sycamore (Y3/Y4) and Maple (Y5/Y6).

Relationships are important to us and we work hard to foster these in all our interactions. We also enjoy strong relationships with parents and the community. Working together, we can provide the best possible educational experience for our children.
