A word of welcome from the Headteacher - Mrs Sarah Bassitt
Whether you are just beginning to think about your child’s education or whether your child is already a part of the Killinghall Church of England Primary School community, we would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our school website. We hope that you will find our site interesting and informative.I have been the Headteacher of Killinghall Church of England Primary School since January 2011. We are a small, very friendly school with approximately 100 pupils. I have a hard working and enthusiastic staff team who place the individual needs of the children at the centre of their thoughts and actions.
Our school is now rated by Ofsted as a good school that is rapidly improving, with some outstanding elements.
We believe in a curriculum that inspires and broadens children’s experiences and passion for learning. This belief drives what happens at our school. We are dedicated to ensuring that the children develop a real love of learning. We believe that we have a duty to help every child to become a rounded individual who is able to play their full part within an ever changing society.
Our approach to education is holistic; we are concerned for the whole child – mind, body and spirit. We offer an exciting and challenging education for all. We set high standards and expect each child to give of their best, but we ensure that this is always with a smile. We have alot of fun in our school!
We celebrate our pupils’ achievements in all areas and recognise that all have different strengths and talents. We encourage positive attitudes towards learning and behaviour.
The staff, governors and pupils are all proud to be a part of Killinghall Church of England Primary School and work hard to make it the special place it is. Visitors to school often remark on the caring and friendly atmosphere within it.
Our School is a full strategic member of the Harrogate and Rural Teaching School Alliance - a group of local schools who work collaboratively to improve outcomes for children. As a school we believe in developing a self-improving, self-sustaining school system to ensure that all our stakeholders realise their potential.
