Message from the Head

It is a pleasure to introduce you to Killinghall Primary School.  I hope that you find the information within our website both useful and interesting.We hope to provide for you, a valuable insight into the high quality education we deliver to our children.  Our pupils are given opportunity and encouragement to enjoy school and be successful.
The gallery on the website demonstrates the importance we place upon stimulating experiences both inside and outside the classroom. We continue to develop strong partnerships between the pupils, staff, parents, governors and the local and wider community.
We have developed a strong culture based on team work which has created a school which goes that “extra mile” for its pupils.
Enjoy your ‘journey’ around the site.

What a busy time we have had at Killinghall Primary School.  As the school grows by an extra form each year it becomes a really busy thriving and exciting place to be.  All our new children have settled in to their new classes and they seem very happy. It is a joy to walk past classrooms and see children busy working and developing their ideas.

We were very pleased to open our 2 year old nursery in September and we are full with sixteen 2 year olds in the morning and sixteen in the afternoon.  Although some of them are still missing their homes the majority of them have settled in beautifully and especially love playing out.

This half term we say good bye to Daniel Jackson who has been with us for quite some time and has been our Science Co-ordinator and Yr 4 class teacher.  Daniel is leaving us to join another Bradford school where he can use his skills and experience to further improve their teaching standards.  We wish him well and he will be sadly missed. His class will be taught by Carmel who has worked with us for some time and last year was a class teacher of 3J.

This half term we have been sending out a weekly newsletter and we hope that parents have found this useful. We are particularly grateful to those parents who have shown a real interest in their child’s education by attending our open mornings where parents come into class to see how their children are taught.

30 children went to France in September and had a great time and we have booked Chateau Beaumont for 2015. Year 4 and 5 pupils need to look out for this information in order to book their place for the 2015 trip.

This year we will be working very hard on improving our reading comprehension and we do hope that you will support your children in this by reading to them books that are beyond their reading age as reading exciting stories at home with parents is a good way for them to develop their understanding and knowledge of the world.

Please see the calendar for any exciting events that may be planned for Christmas, our newsletter is posted on our website and in our phone/tablet app.
