Welcome to Deighton Gates Primary School.
"I tell anyone who will listen about how pleased we are with the education our children are getting at Deighton Gates School!" Year 6 parent.
Deighton Gates is a vibrant, inclusive community primary school in Wetherby, not too far from York, Harrogate or Leeds. As a team of staff, volunteers and parents we work hard to make sure that every child is happy and achieves their potential. Our results continue to be high but we are a lot more than academic achievement.
"Really grateful for all the support you give us!" Year 2 Mum
We are always proud to throw open our doors to welcome friends and family into school to share our learning.
"Great school assemblies with classroom visits!" Year 4 parent.
We are set in extensive grounds which we actively use to promote children's learning, whilst having lots of fun at the same time. Our fabulous outside learning area boasts the pond and wildlife areas so that we can pond dip and observe extensive wildlife on site. We also have a wooded area for exploring, as well as our traditional play equipment. The orchard and vegetable patch also provide wonderful learning opportunities and we have a thriving Gardening club.
"There is a happy feel at Deighton Gates." Year 2 parent.
Inside the school we are fortunate to be blessed with a super learning environment. We have state of the art computers and iPads in our refurbished ICT suite, a specialist art and design suite as well as a modern, well loved library . Classrooms are large and airy, each with a dedicated satellite room for extra ICT provision or small group working. Children enjoy the well resourced music room on a regular basis for class lessons or extra curricular tuition.
"She really looks forward to doing new things daily." Reception Mum
We have a large group of dedicated, hardworking staff who are very proud of the school and the children's achievements and are always prepared to go the extra mile.
"Just wanted to say a BIG thank you to the staff in Reception. In one month he has gone from not wanting to hold a pen to now writing his name!" Reception Mum
