Coronovirus information

To all our parents and carers,

We have welcomed back our Reception and Year 1 children, alongside our key worker children - each of these are in separate pods. We are currently working to ensure a transition visit for our remaining year groups, so that they can spend some time in school before the summer break and will continue to update you on this. We appreciate your patience and support at this time. 

For our pupils who continue to work from home, we will continue to stay in contact with you all daily through our Class Dojo. If you wish to hear from us, just to catch up or to ask questions, then please contact the school office or contact you child's class teacher. If you wish to access this provision or require further information please email school at office@skelmanthorpeacademy.org or message your teacher via Class Dojo.

Welcome Message

Message from the Headteacher,


A very warm welcome to Skelmanthorpe Academy website from all the children, staff and governors.

At Skelmanthorpe Academy, we aim to educate and nurture every child, ensuring they acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes to be successful in the future. A great team of dedicated and hard-working teachers, and support staff strive to ensure that your children have the best educational experience that they can possibly have.

We strongly believe that it is only by working in partnership with parents that we can provide the combination of challenge, support, encouragement and praise that will ensure that all our pupils fulfill their potential. We are lucky enough to have good support from many parents in school and our parent group, FOTS, work closely with school and many events are organised that draw the whole school family together as often as possible

We are committed to ensuring the best possible care and education for our children and we are continually looking for ways to improve and develop what we do, in order to make our school the best it can possibly be.

I hope that you find the website content both informative and enjoyable. We know that choosing the right school for your child is a really important decision. The best way to find out more about our school is to come and visit us. The children and staff are always pleased to show visitors our school at work.

To arrange a visit please telephone Mrs Haigh in the school office on 01484 863306 or email her at office@skelmanthorpeacademy.org She will be delighted to make the arrangements.
