GRASSINGTON C of E Primary School received high marks following an inspection of the school's religious education.

Members of the school's collective worship committee underwent a National Society Statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools and celebrated a successful outcome around the "friendship tree".

The inspector found that the school’s ethos, based around care and consideration for others, created a real sense of family in the school.

She said: "Pupils are happy and confident in the caring and obviously Christian environment that the school offers."

Headteacher Libby Wheildon and her staff are delighted with the report.

Mrs Wheildon said: "It highlights the importance the school attaches to the spiritual, moral, social and cultural development of all pupils and how this is nurtured through a wide variety of planned enrichment opportunities which form part of a broad and balanced curriculum."
