Admission Arrangements

Skelton Primary School is a welcoming and friendly place where learning is at the heart of everything we do. We have a school nursery for 3-4 year olds and classes from Reception to Year 6. We are part of the Hope Learning Trust, which means we have high ambition, and access to wider opportunities for our children.

We want your child to be happy, build their self-belief, and succeed in their learning while they are with us. Skelton aims to provide a caring, supportive and safe environment in which your child can develop and learn as part of their life-long learning journey. We want your child to know their talents and have ambition for their future.

We understand that choosing a school for your child is an important decision for a child’s future. We welcome you to visit the school at any time. A visit can be arranged via our main reception. We currently have a 20 place Reception class each year.

The City of York Council co-ordinate all our admission arrangements and further information can be found here.
