Melbourne Primary School

It is aprivilege to welcome you to Melbourne Community Primary School
We aim to develop our systems to meet one core purpose – to inspire confident learners who will thrive in a changing world.

Melbourne is a friendly village school, catering for children aged between 4 and 11, situated in the Parish of Melbourne in the East Riding of Yorkshire. There are approximately 165 pupils on roll, with the majority of pupils coming from the villages of Melbourne, Everingham, Bielby and Thornton. We also currently have pupils from East Cottingwith, Pocklington, Ellerton, Market Weighton and beyond.

Our school is set in extensive, attractive grounds that provide our children a wonderful place to not only play but learn about the world around them. We encourage our children to become confident life-long, learners and to achieve high standards in everything they do. Children who leave Melbourne are well rounded, motivated, knowledgeable, independent individuals prepared for an exciting future on their educational journey.
