The report from our recent Ofsted inspection is now online. You can view it by clicking here.
We were delighted with the outcome of the report, in which we were graded good across all areas, and outstanding in EYFS.
|Visit from The Archbishop of York, John Sentamu - Wednesday 16th March 2016|
Today was a very special day for Sproatley School, as all of the children from EYFS to Year 6 gathered in the hall to welcome our very special visitor, The Archbishop of York. The visit was part of The Archbishop's pilgrimage. You can read more about the pilgrimage here.
Children across the school prepared questions for The Archbishop of York, and in our special assembly they had the opportunity to ask him some of the questions. The children also gave a fantastic rendition of this week's hymn to start off the collective worship.
Below are some photos and videos from the visit.
Day One - Wednesday 7th October
All of the children were very excited as we set off at about 8.30am to begin our three day Robinwood adventure with children from Years 5 and 6.
After around a two hour drive, we arrived at the bus park to begin the infamous walk to Dobroyd Castle - unfortunately in the rain!
We finally arrived and the children were straight into their groups, starting with the task of getting their beds prepared and made. After some lunch, the children got straight into their two activities before dinner, and then finished the evening off with a further two activites.
All of the children have had to tackle some personal challenges which is fantastic, and they have all had to show great teamwork to get through the tasks which has been great to see.
The children had a great but tiring day, and finished the evening off with a hot chocolate and biscuit before bed time.
More activities await them tomorrow, starting at 9am and ending at 9pm!
Photos will be added to the galleries page once the residential trip is over, but some will be posted in these updates as the trip goes on and on our school Twitter page - @sproatleyschool.

During the Summer term we have been lucky enough to have Hull Kingston Rovers come in to deliver some coaching sessions to the Year 3/4 children. The children have had 4 weeks of coaching, and the 5th week was a presentation of certificates. Ben Parker came along who had delivered the sessions, but he also brought the club mascot Rufus the Robin to present the certificates which the children loved!
Ella in Year 3/4 was lucky enough to be awarded a special prize for winning the kicking competition that had run throughout the sessions, and the club kindly donated a bag of rugby balls to the school for working with us which was fantastic. All of the children got a chance to say goodbye to Rufus before heading back to class. We look forward to working with Hull KR to provide more coaching sessions across the whole school in the future.
On Wednesday some of the children from Year 3/4 travelled down to South Holderness with Mr Marshall. They were there to take part in the annual Year 3/4 Football Tournament against other schools in the local area.
The 7 boys who made up the team performed very well and were good representatives for the school. They won 3 matches, lost 3 and drew 1. This tournament gives the children a good opportunity to experience inter-school football competitions as well as prepare them for future football fixtures they may play in for the school.
While the country were busy voting during the General Election, the children at Sproatley Primary School were taking part in their own election!
Every child, from Reception through to Year 6, voted for the Christian Value that they felt was the most important.
The result of the vote was announced in the Collective Worship on the Friday, with the Christian Value Friendship coming out as the winner.
Years 3, 4 and 5 had the exciting opportunity to visit The Deep on Friday 1st May.
