About us

Leavening Community Primary School is a Group 1 Local Education Authority School administered by North Yorkshire County Council whose central offices are in Northallerton.  The school, established in 1906 and extended in 1964, 2003 and 2007, takes in children of all abilities from 3 to 11 years of age.  The catchment area includes the villages of Acklam, Leppington, Scrayingham, Howsham and Thixendale as well as Leavening.  We also welcome children out of catchment and over the years have happily and successfully educated children from Malton, Norton and the surrounding villages that lie north, south, east and west of Leavening.

Leavening School Nursery 

Nursery provision is currently available to children, the term after they turn 3 years old. Our nursery currently operates 5 mornings a week - 8.55am - 11.55am. Please see Kittens page for more information.

 Parents/carers are encouraged to register their child at an early age, even as young as 1 year old; this ensures information about our nursery and open days are distributed accordingly.

 The Government currently fund 15 hours of early years provision at no charge to the parents/carers; these are broken down to 3 hour sessions here at our nursery. We also offer a Mums & Tots group, this group meets on a Wednesday afternoon, in our nursery building, from 1pm - 3pm. Everyone, including mums, dads, childminders, carers and grandparents, are welcome to come along with their child. There is no charge.

 You can register your initial interest in our nursery either by emailing Mrs. Mortimer (see Contact Us) or by phoning the school on 01653 658313. Registration of interest does not mean you have to commit to your child coming to our school, it just means you get all the information you could need.

  • Child’s full name
  • Child’s date of birth
