Primary School

Ready, Respectful and Safe


Following our Ofsted inspection, in October 2022, we are extremely proud that Kirklevington continues to be a good school.

We are delighted with our inspection report, which can be found here

“Leaders are ambitious for every pupil at school. They have high expectations of pupils’ behaviour and learning. Pupils respond keenly.  Their behaviour and attitudes to learning are admirable.”

“Staff teach children to be caring as soon as they start school. The positive ethos is evident in the strong relationships that pupils have with their teachers and classmates.”

“Pupils have many opportunities to take part in sports and outdoor activities. They enjoy the wide range of after-school clubs. Leaders plan opportunities for pupils to take on roles that help them to develop as active citizens.”

“Reading is a high priority for leaders. Every day, there is time for pupils to read a book. Pupils enjoy the high-quality books on offer. Staff receive regular training to help them to deliver effective reading lessons. As a result, children in early years and pupils in key stage 1 get off to a good start in learning to read.”

“The mathematics curriculum builds on what pupils have previously learned. In early years, teachers introduce children to mathematical language straightaway. Regular practice and time to recap previous knowledge help pupils to remember what they are learning. This helps pupils to become skilful mathematicians.”  

“All staff are highly committed to the school’s programme for pupils’ personal development. The Rights Respecting School approach in school is supporting this well. “

“The trust and governing board engage well with leaders on how they are improving the school. Staff and governors value the expertise of the executive headteacher. This is positively supporting improvements. Staff said that they are proud to work here.”
