Nurture Curiosity, Cultivate Enjoyment, Inspire Success.

Welcome to our website. Here you can find essential information and experience what we feel makes our school special. East Whitby Community Primary School is both a caring and nurturing environment where we help all our pupils aim high.

The behaviour of pupils is outstanding. What marks it out as being beyond good, is how considerate pupils are towards each otherand how they remind each other of how to behave without having to be prompted by adults. Ofsted December 2015

Children and their rounded development are at the heart of our mission. All our staff work hard to provide a skills-based curriculum that is vibrant, meaningful and full of memorable experiences, everyday children should be rushing home to tell parents what they have learnt. 

At East Whitby we want our school to reflect all the things that are special about our town. Within our campus we have a before and after-school care facility and a pre-school playgroup. We also work very closely with our town partnership schools to ensure the best for all the children of Whitby

All our children are encouraged to achieve their very best. We have a strong commitment to inclusion with provision for every individual to maximise their potential in all areas of school life.

If you are interested in any aspect of our work please contact us and come to experience our school.

Simon Smith, Headteacher
