Peter Denwood, Airmyn Park Headteacher

We welcome you and your child to Airmyn Park Primary School Website and hope that you will take a full and supportive interest in the life of our school.

Airmyn Park is a primary school that caters for children between the ages of four and eleven. The catchment area of the school covers the whole of Airmyn village although children can be admitted from outside this area. The purpose built school can accommodate 105 pupils and is located off Park Road in Airmyn.

The school moved to new premises in September 1991 and is well designed, suitably resourced, peaceful and spacious. The school building comprises four classrooms, a shared craft area, a computer suite, a library, an enclosed porch for activities for younger children, a school hall, staff room and administrative offices. On the school site we also have an enclosed natural pond area, woodland and large school field.

Head Teacher:

Our School Aims

The educational aims of the school are in line with The East Riding of Yorkshire Council. A summary of the aims are:

'first to enlarge a child's knowledge, experience and imaginative understanding, and thus his (or her) awareness of moral values and capacity for enjoyment: and secondly, to enable him (or her) to enter the world after formal education is over as an active participant in society and a responsible contributor to it, capable of achieving as much independence as possible.'

The general aims of the school, outlined below, are intended to allow pupils:

  • To develop a sense of self-respect and self confidence leading to satisfaction and personal fulfilment at each stage of development.
  • To develop lively, enquiring minds, imagination and the ability to question and to reason.
  • To apply themselves to a variety of tasks and to see them through to the end.
  • To acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes relevant to their future lives in a rapidly changing world.
  • To develop proficiency in the use of language and number.
  • To develop a morality based on religious and family values and a respect for other races, religions and ways of life.
  • To build up and preserve good, lasting traditions of fairness, duty and service to individuals, the school and the community.
  • To understand the world in which we live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.
  • To appreciate past and present achievements and aspirations.

The school aims to establish a stimulating environment in which the learning process may take place. A range of experiences is offered, flexible enough to take account of the individual differences in the way that children acquire knowledge and understanding. The school aims at all times to promote quality of life and the physical, social and mental well-being of each child.

  • A copy of the most recent OFSTED report relating to the school


School Curriculum Matters

Religious Education and the National Curriculum Foundation subjects of Design Technology, History, Geography, Music, Art, Physical Education, PSHCE and the core subjects of English, Mathematics Science and Information Technology are taught throughout the school.

The core subjects encompass essential concepts, knowledge and skills without which other learning cannot take place effectively.  Competence in literacy, numeracy and scientific method is needed throughout the rest of the curriculum and in all aspects of adult life. Therefore, in the early years of the children's education we do not see the areas of the curriculum as separate but integrated one with another. Thus, there is an emphasis throughout the school in teaching through cross-curricular themes, with study of separate subjects where it is appropriate.

In the early years there is an emphasis on developing literacy skills through a wide variety of reading materials and developing confidence in numeracy through practical activities. First hand experiences relevant to the needs and interests of the children form the basis of much of this early learning. In the later years of the school there is a deeper study of the individual subjects and an emphasis on developing the children's independence and research skills.

Extra Curricular Societies and Activities

There are many activities that the children may have tuition on or take part in. Here are just a few:

  • There are opportunities for the children to learn to play a recorder
  • In Years 5 and 6 tuition on the guitar may be arranged
  • Tuition is also available on brass and woodwind instruments, organised by The Music For Schools Foundation
  • Various sports clubs are held after school
  • The school enters teams in competitive tournaments organised in Goole
  • The older children are given the opportunity to take part in cycle safety lessons.


A range of activities is available to the older children. Sports clubs are held several nights after school. The school takes part in various interschool sports activities during the year.


There are various recorder groups organised by staff and parents that children are encouraged to join. Some of the older children are having lessons in school from visiting music teachers. This is provided by the music support services and a small charge is made.

Junior Road Craft

All children are invited to take part in cycle safety lessons as they reach the top end of the school.

Religious Education

The school's Religious Education follows the guidelines of the LEA's Agreed Syllabus. The Education Reform Act specifies that there must be provision for RE for all pupils and in county schools it should be non-denominational.

There is a daily collective act of worship, which is broadly Christian in character and may be organized for separate groups of pupils at any time during the school day.

The school will make arrangements for parents to exercise their statutory right of withdrawal of their children from religious instruction.

Sex Education

Formal sex education is given to pupils at the end of Year 6 with the support of the School Nurse. Health education and related issues will be covered through a planned curriculum. Any parents not wishing their child to receive sex education in school should contact the headteacher.

Complaints Procedure

It is hoped that any concerns expressed by parents and others about the school curriculum and related matters will continue to be considered and dealt with in informal discussion with teachers and the Head Teacher. Where such concerns cannot be resolved informally, then the complaint should be submitted in writing to the Head Teacher. Where, after further discussion, the problem still remains unresolved then written submission must be made by all parties to the governing body.  Local arrangements will be made for the consideration of specific complaints regarding the National Curriculum, as required under section 23 of the ERA.



Admission Children

We operate an Early Admissions Policy. All pupils are admitted in the September of the academic year in which they are five. Prior to admission the children are given the opportunity to visit school one afternoon per week towards the end of the summer term. The school has an admissions limit of 15 pupils per year group.

Our school's current admission arrangements follow the LEA guidelines. Prospective parents are always welcome to visit the school by prior appointment and there will be specific open days that will be advertised locally.

Parents are encouraged to use the online admissions facility which is now available.

Pupils Outside of the Catchment Area

Parents of pupils outside the catchment area can apply for a place at the school for their child, if places are available. To assist with organisation, we ask for anyone wishing for their children to attend Airmyn Park to inform us as early as possible of their intentions.
