Welcome to Great Smeaton Academy Primary School

Great Smeaton school lies in a lovely village on the outskirts of Northallerton. Our children come to us from surrounding villages and as far a field as Middleton St George and Low Dinsdale,

We are a happy school where we all work hard and play hard.

This year we are working to create, discover and succeed together. We are excited by the future and the continuing improvements we can make. At the heart of all our improvements is the individual child. We learn together and care for one another. As you walk through our doors you will experience our caring atmosphere. You will see and feel it in our classrooms, in our dining hall and on our playground.

As a small school we are in the position of knowing each of our children very well. We are all unique and we celebrate our differences. Each child matters in a way that is unique to themselves and to our school. Some of us play instruments, some of us sing, some of us perform and some of us read books. Each one of us brings something different as a gift to the school. We nurture these gifts and share them together.

As we move forward we welcome the involvement with our local community. We work with our local church and our local village hall. We want to extend our partnerships and relationships even further to enhance the lives of both our children and those in our wider community.

We hope you will join us on our journey in an exciting world that we can only imagine for our future generations of children.
