We are committed to excellence and enjoyment in all that we do, so that each and every child has the opportunity to reach their full potential. Whether you are a parent, prospective parent, pupil, friend or member of the local community, I hope you find our website interesting and helpful. I hope our website will give you a flavour of life at Kettlewell Primary School (KPS) of the warmth and dedication of our teaching staff, and the happiness and fulfilment of the children learning in our wonderful environment, but for a closer look, please contact us to see for yourselves.

Please use the navigation at the top and bottom of each page to browse around and discover what makes us so special.

At Kettlewell Primary School, everyone is treated as an individual. Children are taught in small mixed aged classes.  Each Key Stage has its own classroom and our dedicated KS1 and KS2 teachers and Teaching Assistants are supplemented by specialist subject teachers from Upper Wharfedale Secondary School. The children also benefit from co-operative working with a cluster of 6 local schools, particularly for team sports, Drama, Art and DT and shared trips.

Free home to school transport is provided throughout Upper Wharfedale, Langstrothdale and Littondale for all children living more than 2 miles from school.  Extended hours can be provided through WOOSH (‘Wharfedale Out Of School Hours’) at Upper Wharfedale School. Transport is provided to the club.

We aim for each child to leave our school happy, fulfilled and well prepared for the next stage of their education.

Our partnership with Upper Wharfedale School is an exciting development for the area and through this we will sustain the high quality education for the 0-19 age group.

A Community celebrates!

Students, Staff and Governors of Kettlewell Primary School and Upper Wharfedale School, together with members of Buckden and Grassington Singers, got together last week to make a sound and video recording. This venture was a way to mark and to celebrate the formation of The Upper Wharfedale Federation of Schools which came into being in September.
