 Our School priorities: 2021-22

1.Developing high expectations in  all subjects- Continue to develop impact marking with specific focus to punctuation, spelling, letter formation, neat handwriting and sentence structure.  Create many opportunities to write within the day to promote writing fluency.  

2.Promote self-regulating and positive thinking especially in light of COVID and the time during lockdown- Using Thrive awareness, gardening, singing and Buzz Compass training to support and engage pupils into having a positive and healthy attitude to life and learning.

3. Supporting all pupils- clearing misconceptions when they arise and providing intervention for target children whenever possible. Accelerate learning by facilitating learners to self assess, peer assess and provide up levelling opportunities, where possible.

The Excellence and Enjoyment agenda has challenged schools to think about how rich their curriculum is. Each school  should therefore give careful consideration to curriculum innovation taking account of the distinctive features of their school’s work. We need to tread carefully and be guarded against statements like, ‘We’ve gone back to project work again.’ Let’s not forget that project work did, in some cases, bring with it much repetition with some pupils studying the dinosaurs four times in the primary years.  Through the focus on ‘key skills’ schools should give deeper consideration to progression and continuity of their curriculum; should take account of the distinctiveness of their school; and, organise their curriculum so that there is every opportunity for pupils to make use of their literacy, numeracy and ICT skills within a creative model designed to enrich and excite. The principles of enabling every child to succeed outlined in ‘Every Child Matters’ should predominate our thinking. Our Curriculum at Kirk Smeaton Church of England Primary School has been especially designed to help us give careful consideration to the principles of progression and continuity without losing sight of creativity. Following the breakdown of the key skills structure outlined in our curriculum it has helped us guarantee moving pupils’ learning forward and ensuring that pupils are achieving their full potential.

                       Keeping our children safe 


At Kirk Smeaton Church of England School we believe in safeguarding and developing the whole child. We believe all children have a right to expect a quality education regardless of gender, race, culture or disability and be given opportunities to achieve their full potential.


Safeguarding Children
Kirk Smeaton Church of England Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including ours, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school's child protection policy is available on request.

Keeping Children Safe in Education 

What to do if you're worried a child is being abused 


We are part of a project called Operation Encompass which runs between schools in North Yorkshire, and North Yorkshire Police, designed to provide early reporting to schools of domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending our premises. Further details on this can be found here
