Cracoe and Rylstone Primary School is situated in the village of Cracoe

In the beautiful Upper Wharfedale region of the Yorkshire Dales.

We are a small school with big ambitions for our children and all in our wider school community.

We have high standards and strive for excellence in everything we do. We have been judged ‘Outstanding’ in all aspects by Ofsted (Oct. 2012) and SIAMS (Nov. 2013) We think that our school is a very special place and we hope you will too!

Within school we have two well-equipped, spacious classrooms, a purpose-built ICT/library area, as well as Wi-fi access, laptops, cloakrooms, offices and a staffroom. The school benefits from it’s very close proximity to the modern and spacious Cracoe Village Hall, which is used as an additional teaching space, for PE , drama, musical and social events.

The tarmac playground is marked with games and there are grassed areas which can be used in the summer months. We also have the use of a playing field adjacent to the Village Hall. Class 1 also have an outside play area.

We are part of the Upper Wharfedale Primary School Federation. This allows each school; the staff and pupils, to work together on many levels whilst preserving each schools identity.
