Here are our curricular plans for each class. This year we are currently on cycle B.

At Kippax North, our mission is to provide a transformative cradle-to-career education that allows our children to enjoy lives of choice and opportunity.

Children who read or are read to regularly have the opportunity to open the doors to so many different worlds!

More importantly, reading will give your child the tools to become an independent, lifelong learner.

We develop early readers by:

  • Using Read Write Inc, a programme to help to your child read at school
  • Encouraging children to develop a love of books by reading to them daily, at home and at school
  • Giving children access to a wide range of books at school and at home

At Kippax North, we use Read Write Inc Phonics (RWI) to give your child the best possible start with their English development. Our phonics lead is Mr A. Womersley.

What is Read Write Inc?

Read Write Inc (RWI) is a complete phonics literacy programme which helps all children learn to read fluently and at speed so they can focus on developing their skills in comprehension, vocabulary and spelling. The programme is designed for children aged 4-7. However, at Kippax North Primary School, we begin the programme in Nursery and will continue teaching RWI to children beyond the age of 7, as we use a stage, not age, approach.

RWI was developed by Ruth Miskin, and more information on this can be found here.

We have been working closely with the Jerry Clay Academy, funded by the Department for Education to support schools in achieving excellence in teaching reading and early language development. We started our journey and staff training for Read Write Inc during the Summer Term of 2021. This was a vital process to ensure that our delivery today is the best it can be!

School Meals & Milk

Children may either eat a dinner provided by Catering Services which conforms to recommended nutritional standards, or they may bring a packed lunch. Children will be offered water or fruit juice to drink. For special diets and vegetarian meals please make enquiries at the school.

Children in Snow Leopard Class and Northern Hemisphere are entitled to a free school meal every day.

Whether they have a school dinner or a packed lunch, we encourage children to eat all their food as we are working hard to prevent waste and teach children about the importance of sustainability (not to mention the importance of a healthy diet!). You can view Swillington Primary’s School Food policy on the Policies and Procedures page.
