Working together to achieve our best

Welcome to Yew Tree Primary School

Thank you so much for your support and donations

We raised: £774

We hope you enjoyed our Christmas Fair and would agree it was a great success...we will give you grand total raised as soon as we can!

Thank you so much for her your donations and help. We couldn't do this without you all.

We have recently been awarded a Basic Skills (Primary) Quality Mark Award for the sixth time. The Basic Skills Quality Mark promotes, supports and celebrates progress and improvements made by a school in English and Mathematics.

Without these ‘basic skills’ of good communication, literacy and mathematical skills, individuals are disadvantaged throughout their lives – as learners, in the workplace and as parents, consumers and citizens and so they form the ‘bedrock’ of a good education.


A very warm welcome to Yew Tree Primary School. The information found on this website should tell you all you need to know about our school. If you have any further questions simply call and ask; we are here to help. We are extremely proud of our school and stand by our motto ‘Working together to achieve our best’. Yew Tree Primary School is a happy, supportive, caring and fun place to be. But don’t take our word for it – Take a look at our website and see for yourself. 

P. Tankard, Headteacher, and all at Yew Tree Primary School

Parent View - Give Ofsted your view on your child's school

 Share your views through Parent View

Parents and carers can give their views of our school at any time of the school year and at the time of a school inspection using an online questionnaire called Parent View. When our school is notified of its next Ofsted inspection, parents will be invited to give their views about the school to inspectors using the Parent View online facility as this has replaced Ofsted’s paper questionnaire. Please make sure we have your most up-to-date contact details.

Please register with an email address and a password at Once your login has been activated, it only takes a few minutes to complete answers to 12 short questions about aspects such as bullying, the quality of teaching, level of homework, etc. Your views are important in helping inspectors make a decision about our school, and to help us know what is going well and what could be improved.

If you do not have a computer or an email address or if you would like help to use Parent View, please come into school and ask at reception.
