About Us

The school’s ethos is “Enjoy School – Be Ready for Life.” Our mission is to ensure the children have an enjoyable time with us and they are outstanding citizens ready for their next stage of education when they leave. We have developed an engaging and challenging curriculum, which the children find exciting and which helps them to develop key literacy, numeracy and life skills.

We have two buildings in the village of North Cowton, which accommodate our two classes; one infant class, catering for children from reception up to year 2, and one junior class for years 3 to 6. However, the school is not constrained by these physical boundaries and truly extends into the heart of the community. We have a dedicated and talented team of staff, volunteers and governors, who work hard to ensure that all our children develop to their full social, sporting and academic potential.

We are always delighted to welcome any child to our family. If you are considering sending a child to join us, please do not hesitate to contact me.

North and South Cowton Community Primary School is at the heart of the village of North Cowton. It works closely with St Lukes Church. Jen, the children’s minister from Northallerton’s New Life Baptist church takes a fun, musical thought provoking assembly every Friday morning.

The school works closely with local schools and they hold joint curriculum days together and share professional development days.  The Headteachers of the schools work together to drive school improvement and share their expertise with one another.

The school is an active member of the Swaledale Teaching Alliance and works closely with the Northallerton Small Schools Group.
