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.
