Take a look at this song written and sung by two young members of the York Community - 



Congratulations and well done to Miss Moughan who has successfully completed her NQT year with us.  I am sure that you will all agree she is fantastic asset to our teaching team.  Thanks also to Mrs Coventry who supported her as mentor throughout the year.

Fake News  - we believe the post published yesterday re the pictures for the NHS Nightingale hospital was fake news.  See pic below - a lesson learnt that we all need to remember to keep safe on line and know we can trust what we read.  Please stay safe in all ways. 


There is a way to share the pictures virtually and safely.  

Coming soon to the Covid 19 Info page - how you can create your own nurse.  Thanks Mrs Moore

Social Distancing - published 30th March 


Please ensure that ALL household follow this guidance closely to ensure that your family members are limited to only immediate household family or essential carers.  

Free School Meals - Published 31st March




As you know we have provided families who are eligible and requested with Potato Packs over these past two weeks.  We are currently arranging with our Catering Services to ensure that we can continue to do this after the Easter Break following delivery of supplies - 21st April 2020.  We will be sending a form out to all eligible families to ask who would like a pack.

Week 2 - 31st March 2020

Good Morning - I have created my own classroom on Google Classroom - the code is below if you would like to join - Teachers and TA's too.

My plan is to set you a challenge each week to complete - and share.  

Use this code to join Miss L's Class


WEEK 2 - 30th March 2020

I hope that you have all had a good weekend and kept safe.  It is very strange to think how much our lives have changed in the past seven days, but it is positive to see the messages come through on the Google Class pages showing pictures of work and very importantly baking - perhaps we could create a "Survival Cook Book" when we get back to school with our favourite recipes during this time of isolation.

Later this week I will be sending a form out about home school learning packs for after the Easter holidays.  We appreciate that the learning has not been as easy as perhaps we would have hoped - what with sharing computers,  printers breaking etc but we will be aiming to help out by having new packs for you to collect if needed at the end of the Easter holidays.

PLEASE CARE, HELP and SHARE -  our children need to have the HOPE for THEIR FUTURE !

Welcome to Whitley And Eggborough Community Primary School 

 May I welcome you and your child to the school.  Whitley and Eggborough school provides a high standard of teaching for all children who attend.  Children obtain good national test results and receive a well-rounded education from experienced, committed teachers and other staff.  As well as high levels of achievement, our philosophy is that children should enjoy learning and school life and feel part of the family atmosphere we work hard to foster.

Opened originally in 1877, the school was extensively rebuilt in the early 1970s and was recently further extended in 2011.  It has a pleasing open aspect to the rear of the buildings, looking over farm and woodland.  We have our own woodland and pond area, which we enjoy and use as an integral part of our curriculum work.

At Whitley and Eggborough School, our vision is provided through a rich range of memorable learning experiences, learning experiences that affect the emotions. In other words, learning that excites and charges experience, learning that makes our children feel something significant and provides experiences that they will remember for a long, long time. This is achieved through creating learning opportunities in the classroom that are inclusive, meaningful and thrilling. Learning moments and experiences engage the children and excite their emotions, send a shiver through the soul and put them in ‘challenging’ situations.

We want to encourage learning for the future and so it is vitally important that the children are happy, secure and that their learning journey is fun. 

If you require paper copies of any information available on our website, please contact the school office. We will be happy to provide these free of charge.  These can also be made available in large print, braille or another language.
