Welcome to our website. We’re happy that you’re taking an interest in us.
Kippax North Primary School is a successful, vibrant school that strives to be at the heart of its community with its motto to ‘Aim High’ in everything it does. Our talented, friendly staff believe in creating a love of learning by teaching a wide curriculum, with lots of real-world experiences and chances for children to develop their resilience and confidence, ready for the next stage of their lives.
We want our children to be happy and kind to one another, and good role models in the community. We know this requires everyone in their lives to help develop their pride in themselves and in the world, which is why we work closely with parents and carers and communication between home and school is always strong.
We benefit from truly outstanding grounds and facilities, with football fields, ponds, wigwams, a cycle track, chicken coop, STEM lab, wind turbine and a birdwatching hut to name but a few. These are used to enhance experiences and lessons for children, knowing we are fortunate at Kippax North to be able to bring subjects to life.
At Kippax North, ‘we take pride in everything we do’ and ‘do everything for a reason’, but most of all we ‘Aim High’ for the future. This is because every child should have the opportunity to find and pursue their talents and interests to become well-rounded adults that are happy and contributing to society in a positive way.
I hope you find our website useful and that it gives you a sense of who we are. We would love to become the foundation of your child’s education, and welcome you into our wonderful community.
Brigshaw Partnership Vision and ValuesWe're proud to belong to the Brigshaw Partnership, working together with six other school, sharing our experiences, expertise and resources to provide exceptional education and opportunities in our community. The Brigshaw Values are:
We are one team with one goal, unapologetically ambitious for all in the belief that every child can achieve, regardless of their background or socio-economic status. We work with each other and for each other.
We give 100% effort. We don’t make excuses or give up when it’s hard, embracing challenges as opportunities for growth. We know success is achieved incrementally.
We are open about our successes and areas for growth and take responsibility to become better, every day.
Here at Kippax North Primary School, we firmly believe the two most important activities are learning and teaching. Our core values ensure that we are committed to developing:
Successful, resilient learners by recognising and unlocking each individual’s promise and potential.
