Primary School

Happy, Caring, High Achieving


Dear Parents and Visitors,

We are delighted that you have taken the time to look at our school website.

Kirklevington Primary School is a small school, with 123 children, including 18 children in Nursery. As year group sizes can vary, the organisation of class groups may change from year to year.  Currently, we have 5 class groups, in addition to our Nursery class.  We were rated as GOOD in all areas during the latest OFSTED inspection in July 2015 and are very proud of the fantastic report we received.

We pride ourselves on our small, friendly, village school ethos, where each child is unique and precious. Our aim is to give all our children the best possible start to life within a happy, caring environment.  We have high ambitions for all of our children and make sure that their learning is both enjoyable and rewarding.

Academic, sporting and artistic performance are encouraged, with an emphasis on the values that go with this. Our dedication to providing a range of experiences for children can be seen through our commitment to sporting activities, resulting in us being one of a small number of schools to achieve the School Games Platinum Award, our partnership with Conyers Music, providing specialist music teachers for all key stage 2 children, as well as the opportunity to learn drums, woodwind, brass, guitar and cello in school and our work with local artists, including the preparation of a glass sculpture to be displayed on the route of the Stockton Cycling Race. We are a Rights’ Respecting School and we achieved our Gold Rights’ status in 2019.

We believe that working in close partnership with parents and families is key to ensuring that children make the best start to their education and we really value parental support. There are regular opportunities for parents to engage with school, through visiting classrooms, supporting school work and sharing children’s successes.

Children have just one childhood; we believe that their primary school experience should be magical and wondrous, filled with inspirational and unforgettable experiences. At Kirklevington Primary, we know it is both our duty and privilege to help children enjoy their precious childhood years, provide them with an excellent, relevant education, which is suited to their needs, and builds a firm foundation for their future lives.

We do have some places available within the school, so please do contact us if you are interested in discussing this further. We hope that you will find all the information on our website useful and helpful, but should you have any questions or would like to arrange a visit to have a look around our school, please contact our School Administrator, Ms Jeffrey, on 01642 781261.
