A Typical Day
at Kippax North Primary School

Getting to and from school

Walking is definitely the best option! There are lots of benefits: it’s healthier than travelling by car, it improves the safety of pedestrians and road-users, and it respects nearby residents and parking regulations. Our gated entrance is for pedestrians, cyclists and scooter users. If you do need to travel by car, please park carefully and courteously.

We have cycle sheds to store bikes and scooter storage too. Children are required to wear helmets and hi-visibility vests when coming to and from school on bikes and scooters. They should use only the paths when they are on site and push bikes/scooters when on our school site. Bikes and scooters left on the school site remain the responsibility of parents.

The car park is for staff and visitor use only. Should you need to drop your child off at the school door please arrange this with the school office who will issue you with a parking permit.


We make full use of our extensive grounds with the children having access to three play areas: a quiet area, a playground for football and ball games and a playground for using the Scrap Shed to create wonderful structures and other playground games.

We operate a 'Come rain or shine' approach to using the outdoors where children play out whatever the weather so long as it is safe. Children wear clothing appropriate to the weather conditions and we recommend good waterproofs/waterproof trousers wellies/boots and umbrellas to take full advantage of playing in the rain!
