We are a very popular school for pupils both within and outside of our catchment area. Many families and parents choose Rufforth as their first preference choice because they are keen for their child to experience a tailored, nurturing small school environment in which our pupils are proven to excel.
We are proud of our achievements, successes and our wonderful children and families and would actively encourage any parents interested in joining our school to arrange a visit with Miss Richards, the headteacher.
Due to high demand, first preference choices for Rufforth School will have a stronger chance of securing a place, so we encourage parents keen on gaining a place to select us as a first choice. Our pupils come from Rufforth village and further afield. Within our current Reception class, 64% of children live outside of the catchment area so please do not let your location discourage you from applying.
If would like to arrange a date to look around please contact Mrs Walton either emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01904 806222.
Rufforth Primary School participates in the Local Authority’s Co-ordinated Admission Scheme for in-year admissions. If parents/carers wish to apply for a school place, applications can be made at https://www.york.gov.uk/
