Welcome to Laycock Primary School!
Situated in the Yorkshire countryside above Keighley, we are spoilt by our setting
which is within a stone’s throw of Haworth, the Keighley and Worth Valley Railway,
Cliffe Castle and the first public Carnegie Library in England!
Step inside our school and you will see why Laycock is such a special school. We
are a small half-form entry school catering for children aged between four and eleven
years of age. Children are taught in four mixed-aged classes with the exception of
Reception, where we keep them in a pure year group of just fifteen children.
The original school building dates back to 1891, with additions in 2001,alterations in
2012 and a refurbishment completed in 2017, providing our pupils with a learning
environment which is both modern yet has great charm and character. The school is
set in large secure grounds. Our children enjoy a fantastic play area complete with
climbing frame, trim trail, woodland area and playing fields. An additional garden
area and pond to the front of the school provide even more opportunities for outdoor
Our children are at the heart of everything we do and we pride ourselves on the
personalised provision we achieve for each of them. Our friendly and dedicated staff
works exceptionally hard to ensure each child receives the happiest and best
education we can possibly provide and, being so small, we all know each other really
‘Pupil Voice’ is strong at Laycock Primary School, with the School Council taking a
lead role in improvements across school. Parents and carers and their families are
encouraged to engage with school and their child’s learning via regular Parent’s
Evenings, half-termly assemblies and weekly coffee mornings. Half-termly
newsletters keep everyone up-to-date with events and these are available to view on
our website. ‘Friends of Laycock’ is our parent group who work tirelessly to raise
funds to support activities for our children. Supported by our Governing Body we
truly are a dedicated team, working together to achieve the very best for all our
children. We hold Investors in Pupils, Investors in Families and the National
Nurturing Schools Awards.
As a school we are proud of all our achievements yet at the same time we are not
complacent and constantly strive to improve in everything we do. Laycock Primary
School offers a stimulating, fun yet purposeful learning environment in which all
children are valued and encouraged to unlock their potential.
Laycock Primary School is a founding-member school of The Pennine Academies
Yorkshire Multi Academy Trust, which was formed in May 2018. We work closely
with our family of schools, where we consider our diversity to be one of our
strengths; an opportunity to learn about one another through our differences and to
shape generations to come to accept everyone.
