A Member of the Brighter Futures Learning Partnership Trust
WELCOME TO OUR SCHOOL!
Welcome to our school website and thank you for taking the time to find out about our school. I am the very proud Executive Head teacher of Kirk Sandall Infant and Kirk Sandall Junior Schools. Thank you for taking the time to find out about us and if you have any questions, please feel free to get in touch and we would be delighted to help.
Both schools sit at the heart of the community, with excellent relationships with parents and carers. Expectations across the ambitious, knowledge-rich curriculum are high, from the youngest children as they enter nursery in the Infant school, to the eldest in the Junior school preparing to transition to Hungerhill.
We are members of the Brighter Futures Learning Partnership Trust, where leaders at all levels are fully committed to ensuring every child succeeds. The vision for excellence in education permeates both schools along their school improvement journeys, where every child is supported to flourish.
We have high expectations of behaviour across both schools and our children respond well to the school’s learning powers - the Kirk Sandall Seven - which provide our children with a secure basis for lifelong learning that they both understand and embrace.
Visits to the school are welcomed and encouraged – please give us a call if you’d like to know more.
Hello and welcome to Kirk Sandall Infant School.
I am delighted you have taken time to have a look at our website and to find out about our school. On behalf of the staff and governors at Kirk Sandall Infant School I would like to extend a very warm welcome to you. For parents who know us well, or new parents looking for a school for your child, I hope you will find our website useful but if you have any further questions or ideas please get in touch.
Kirk Sandall Infant School is a very special place for all the children and families who attend. We believe in creative and innovative teaching that engages all children's interests and inspires a love of learning. Our philosophy is that all children are entitled to the best start in their early education. Their individual well-being is paramount and we firmly believe in ensuring that children feel safe, secure and happy so that they can reach their full learning potential. All children have different gifts and talents and from the first day children start with us they can expect an outstanding education and will thrive in our child centred learning environment. We have high expectations of behaviour and children respond well to our Learning Powers. This ensures that children have a secure basis for their learning.
We value the partnership between home and school and encourage all parents to take an active part in the education of their child. There will be many opportunities for you to visit school and see your child 'in action' and we will keep you well informed of the progress your child is making.
All the staff and children are very proud of our school and I feel privileged to be the Headteacher. You are most welcome to come and visit us and see what a special place Kirk Sandall Infant School is.
This poem below sums this up for us.
Mrs Nina Brannon
I dreamt I stood in a studio
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a young child’s mind
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher, the tools he used
Were books and music and art.
One was a parent with a guiding hand
And a gentle loving heart.
And each agreed they would have failed
If they had worked alone.
For behind the parents stood the school
And behind the teacher, the home.
School Motto: “Together we achieve more!”
Mission Statement: “Learning and growing together through collaboration, determination and resilience, giving each child the best possible start in life.”
Vision Statement: Kirk Sandall Infant Academy is a happy, safe and nurturing school where outstanding teaching and support aims to inspire each individual to achieve their full potential. We keep moving forward, opening new doors and learning new things, because we are curious, and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths and teaching us new things. We are safe, we care, we are happy and our future is bright!
