Children are taught in small mixed aged classes. Each Key Stage has its own classroom and our dedicated EYFS/KS1 and KS2 teachers.
The children 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 from Kettlewell School is provided to the club.
At Kettlewell School everyone is happy and thriving: the best we can be. We aim to provide an inclusive, safe, and inspirational environment to create:
- SUCCESSFUL, LIFELONG LEARNERS who enjoy learning, make good progress and achieve their full potential, regardless of ability, gender, social/economic background or ethnicity.
- CONFIDENT INDIVIDUALS who are able to live safe, healthy and fulfilling lives, with confidence in their own abilities and how to use and apply them.
- ACTIVE AND RESPONSIBLE CITIZENS who make a positive contribution to society. We value and respect all members of the school and wider community and we demonstrate that every child really does matter by teaching them well and expecting the very best from them.
