Welcome to our website. We hope you enjoy looking around. We are a small school in a rural area and pride ourselves on our "family" of children, parents, staff, governors and members of the local community. We work closely together to provide an enriching and challenging learning environment for our children.
Our aim is "Growing and learning through Faith, Inspiration and Fun" and we want our children to have the best possible start in their education. We value and celebrate each other's achievements and we encourage our children to embrace new experiences. Children are taught to respect individual differences and show kindness, consideration and respect for others. We nurture our children and provide a sound foundation for their future life.
We have impressive grounds, engaging indoor and outdoor classrooms and enthusiastic pupils, staff, parents and governors. We all work together to help ensure that our children flourish.
As the Interim Executive Head teacher I am delighted to be working with the children, parents and Governors of the school. A child's experiences at Primary School are among the most important of his or her life. At Kirk Hammerton we want to provide education of the highest quality - education that provides the very best opportunities for all children. I thoroughly enjoy my work in the school and that in our partner school, the partnership with Staveley Community Primary allows the children wider opportunities to work and share experiences with pupils in a larger setting, thus enhancing their Learning.
A website can never truly replicate the experience and warm welcome of our school, so please do get in touch if you would like to visit and see for yourself what a wonderful school Kirk Hammerton is.

Wind in the Willows
Pupils in all classes were treated to a visit from artist Ray Mutimer (in Mr Toad's classic car!), who has prepared some stunning artwork using Knaresborough as the setting for key scenes in "Wind in the Willows". The paintings tie in with a community-based performance of "Wind in the Willows" to be held in Knaresborough in August. Ray explained how he prepared the artwork through sketches and redrafting; children asked a range of questions about being an artist and which was the most difficult artwork to prepare.
