Scorton Church of England Primary School is set in the heart of the village of Scorton, attracting pupils from the village but also from the surrounding areas of Barnacre, Catterall, Galgate and Forton. We are very lucky to be situated in the Forest of Bowland which is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Our school environment is fantastic and our woodland nature area, pond, multi-use games area and well resourced playground provide a wealth of opportunities for our children.
We count ourselves very lucky to be a small school. We are able to offer an environment that fosters empathy and positive well being in a way that a large school never could. Our pupils have a very strong sense of connection and we really are a school family. Our small classes allow us to truly tailor learning to meet individual needs, making sure our learners are challenged but feel safe and supported. Unlike larger schools, we can organise fun, hands on learning opportunities quickly and easily and the children's interests can really shape the direction our curriculum takes.
We have a team of highly competent, innovative and approachable staff whose care for our children is second to none. We have a close relationship with our families, and because we are small, our staff are able to give parents and children the time they need. We really do work in partnership and parental engagement is key to our success.
Our Mission Statement, 'Reach Up, Reach In, Reach Out', reflects the way in which our school family:
- Reach up to God to show us the way
- Reach in for the courage and wisdom of the Holy Spirit to help us reach our goals
- Reach out to everyone with the kindness and compassion of Jesus.
If you think that our school might be the place for your child to start or continue their learning journey, please get in touch. I would be delighted to show you around our wonderful school.

What our pupils have to say:
What Makes our School Amazing
Our school is probably one of the best because we get delectable food! We also go to the pantomime every Christmas and get Christmas dinner from The Barn. For dessert we get ice cream with a flake in, yum!
We have got a huge playground with a MUGA, a huge grass area, a playground and a wood where you can make dens and read stories in. We have also got a place where you can ride three-wheeled bikes and you can sit on other vehicles and get pushed by your friends. We also run the daily mile every day.
In our class, we are really lucky as in Art sometimes the artist who we are leaning about actually comes in the school and helps us with our art.
What Makes Scorton School Amazing?
I like the school because there are friendly people and there is lot of places to play: nature area, field, playground and finally the best, the Muga. The teachers push you to your limits with your work and that makes me feel good when I finish. At my time at Scorton, I have learnt that friends help you in hard times and in the appropriate times, have a laugh! I love playing sport with my friends on the Muga at break times. I also loved the residential (at Borwick) because the challenges make your friendships stronger and you can hang out with your mates.
What makes our School and Classes Amazing?
When you have just entered Scorton School you might feel a bit nervous but after a day at Scorton School you will have some friends and the next day you will be so excited to come and meet your friends again. At playtimes at Scorton School you will always have something to play with like skipping ropes, football and loads more. When you are playing football you can play on the MUGA by your self or with different people. In KS1 and KS2 the teachers can book trips for the kids and other people in the school, sometimes we go on trips that are linked to our topic. I know the work might be tough but after you have done it you will feel very proud of yourself. It doesn’t matter if you’re bad at spelling, Maths or English or anything else, all that matters is that you tried your best. If you are ever scared about anything just tell the teachers.
