Welcome to Dent Church of England Voluntary Aided Primary School!

Welcome to our school, in the beautiful surroundings of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. We love learning and we enjoy developing together through an enriched and broad curriculum. We hope our website will help you to find out more about how we work and what makes life at Dent C of E School so special. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

We are a vibrant and caring rural primary school, working as part of the whole community to provide a creative and nurturing environment where all children flourish.  With Christian values at the heart of all we do, each child is encouraged to reach their potential.  Every child experiences our personalised approach to learning, which allows children to grow in independence and confidence, aiming high and achieving success.  Through the highest quality education, we aim to prepare our children to serve the community, locally and globally, whilst developing a deep appreciation of Christian values, faith and life.

‘The attention to pupils’ well-being and the level of pastoral care is second to none… …Pupils of all ages and abilities are given plenty of opportunities to try new things and experience success. Consequently, they enjoy school, feel confident, and are well prepared for their new schools when they leave Dent Primary.’
