At Kettlewell Primary we strongly believe that communication is key to ensuring all children are happy, secure, motivated and, ultimately, successful.  We have a wide variety of means of communication alongside the termly reports and parents’ meetings.


A member of staff will be at the entrances at the start and end of the school day so that messages can be passed on.

We encourage parents to communicate with class teachers verbally at the start or end of the school day. If this is not possible, then emailing our administrator is the best way to contact a class teacher. Mrs Addyman can be reached at admin@kettlewell.n-yorks.sch.ukShe will pass emails on to class teachers.

Teachers regularly update their class pages of this website.

We send out weekly newsletters.

Year group newsletters are produced half termly.

Mrs Addyman can send text messages to parents through our Parents2Teachers text message service. This will be used to send urgent messages or reminders.

If you feel that your issue has not been resolved by the class teacher then please make an appointment to speak to Mr Scott, Base Leader. If your issue has still not been resolved or your child is in Class 2 then please make an appointment to meet with the executive headteacher.
