We are a small, rural school that works in close partnership with parents, the Church and the community to create a happy and enriching learning environment for our children.
We aim to give our children the best possible start in their education and provide a safe, happy and friendly school. We value and celebrate our children's achievements, we encourage them to embrace new experiences, they are taught to respect their differences and show kindness, consideration and respect for others. We nurture our children and provide a sound foundation for their future life. Our impressive grounds, stimulating indoor and outdoor classrooms, enthusiastic staff, parents and governors ensure our pupils flourish and reach their full potential.
I am the Executive Head Teacher of Kirk Hammerton Church of England Primary School and I split my time between Kirk and Staveley Community Primary School. I enjoy spending time with the children and am privileged to have a role that allows me to work in two small schools with wonderful, hard working and caring children. The children also enjoy being in a close partnership with Staveley as they get the benefits of a larger school and can share many experiences together.

Budding thespians from Kirk Hammerton C of E Primary School and Staveley Community Primary School joined forces for a very special performance of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shrew" at the Joseph Rowntree Theatre on Wednesday the 15th of October. As part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival, 30 children aged 8 - 11 spent the last 6 weeks bringing the play together and getting first-hand experience of the theatrical process. Their performance was one of 1,000 performances (involving 35,000 children) taking place nationwide to mark the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth.
