Welcome to Cawood Church of England Primary School - "Excellence and enjoyment, rooted in our key Christian values of thankfulness, friendship and hope"

We are a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary school for 3 -11 year olds, based in North Yorkshire. We aim to be a highly inclusive school where everyone matters. 

Class transition meetings


We have loaded up the presentations from the class meetings onto the school website. You'll find them to download by clicking on the Parents tab above.

If you have a general enquiry, please contact the administrators (Jo & Beth) in the school office.


We are proud to be members of the North Star and Polaris Teaching School Alliances. North Star and Polaris formed a unique partnership in 2016 to support school improvement across North Yorkshire, and work with around 70 primary schools in the region. Our collective aim is to improve outcomes for all children through a self-sustaining, dynamic system of school improvement and support.


Train to teach in local schools: Cawood CE Primary School, as part of North Star Teaching Alliance, is delighted to be working in partnership with Leeds Trinity University and Polaris Teaching School Alliance to offer early years and primary teacher training places for 2019-20.
