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.

Gill's Summer 2014 Blog

Hi everyone

We are very lucky at the moment to be enjoying wonderful summer weather and also very lucky that we planned our sports days during this time.  The children are having a great time and the parents too.  We are really pleased to see lots of parents attending sports day and even running races!  Parents receive reward stamps for attending and these will be given to their children, to go on their collection cards, so that they can spend them at our reward bank shop.

It seems amazing that it is only a year since our last Ofsted when we received a very good report in the summer of 2013.  ‘Leadership and Management’ and ‘Behaviour and Safety’ were deemed outstanding. 

At the moment we are waiting for the SATs results of our Year 6 children and do anticipate that in relation to national averages these will be much lower than in the past.  We are a very inclusive school and pride ourselves on the provision we give children with special educational needs.  They make great progress here but often cannot reach national average within their lifetime here.  Being an inclusive school means that their low attainment is reflected in our overall SATs results.  We are also very happy to take children who do not speak English as their first language and have recently received children from Canada, Africa and European countries

The teachers have worked very hard this year and although we may not reach national average the children progress from their starting points very well.  School is a very exciting place to be with lots going on and our 2 mini buses are continually out and about giving children exciting life experiences. 

Children in Year 2 this year have exceeded our expectations in their progress and we are anticipating some really good SATs results.

The most exciting news we have is that we will be opening our Bright Start Early Learning provision in September 2014 and already we have filled all the places.

We close for the summer holidays on 25 July 2014 and re open on 5 September 2014.  We look forward to seeing you all in September and hope that parents make full use of the summer holidays by continuing the education of their children by getting out and about with them and practising their reading, writing and maths at home. 

We say a farewell to our Year 6 children as they move onto high school. We are very proud of them and wish them all the best for the future.

Please see our calendar for any exciting events you may like to come to see in school.
