A very warm welcome to everyone of all faiths or none...


Pool-in-Wharfedale Church of England Voluntary Controlled Primary School (or Pool C of E to the locals!) is in the Benefice of Lower Wharfedale which is in the Diocese of Leeds.

‘Believe and Achieve’ is our ethos. It is the foundation on which we build lasting partnerships with our pupils, parents and the wider community. We have close links with St Wilfrid’s and Pool Methodist churches, and our values are based on the Christian faith.
Through high expectations and a caring Christian environment, we aim to provide the best for our pupils and strive to develop the ‘whole child’. We proudly refer to ourselves as 'The Pool School Family' and instil in all our pupils a desire to look after each other and celebrate diversity.
We are always delighted to see you! With your help, we trust your child will be happy and fulfilled at Pool School.
We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find all the information you are looking for. Please feel free to leave comments on our page – ‘Working Together’ or contact us directly.
Thank you for visiting!
