Reception Class - September 2024

We are delighted that your child has been offered a place at our school from September 2024. For those joining us for the first time, we are thrilled to welcome you to our Saltergate community and for those in Discovery Learning, we are very happy that you will be carrying on with your Saltergate journey! 

Our EYFS team is well established, highly qualified and truly dedicated - we work together as class teachers and support staff and everyone takes a shared responsibility for the children’s development and happiness. 

Our aim is to nurture children and to enable them to meet their full potential through a rich and creative curriculum. We will send further communications using the contact details which you used to complete the application through North Yorkshire. If your contact details change in the meantime, please do let the school office know and we will update our records.
