Welcome to our School

The staff and governors would like to welcome you to Kirk Langley C of E (C) Primary School and hope that you enjoy reading this information.

It is designed to give you some idea about the way we work and information about our day to day procedures.

We were extremely pleased with our OFSTED inspection report, received in July 2002. We are equally pleased that good progress has been made with the issues raised. 
The report is available in school if you would like to read it or alternatively review it at .

We are working hard to implement the changes taking place in education today, especially in our drive to raise standards in literacy and numeracy for all our children.

We are delighted that our new ICT suite and staff room are now in use and with the plans to improve the rest of the learning environment.

Our new playing field is now complete and the children are enjoying using it this year.

The Staff and Governors of Kirk Langley

CE (C) Primary School aim to provide a 


atmosphere in a well organised and stimulating environment where active learning and personal development can take place in order to enrich the lives of all our children and enable them to realise their full potential both now and in the future.

We learn not for school, but for life


*    We expect our children to behave responsibly, courteously and to be polite at all times and in all situations.

*    Our discipline is firm, fair and consistent. It includes a positive approach of praise and encouragement to maintain good standards of behaviour.

*    We aim to develop self-discipline and self esteem.

*    As a result of this we pride ourselves on the high standards of behaviour exhibited by our children at all times, both in and out of class.


Children born on or between 1st September and 30th April may begin full time education at the beginning of the Autumn term prior to their fifth birthday.

Children born on or between 1st May and 30th August may begin full time education at the beginning of the Spring term prior to their fifth birthday.

As a small school we can consider requests for children to begin school at the beginning of the Autumn term instead of the Spring term either part time or full time.

 It is essential that parents of children who live in the local area confirm in writing that they have a preference for their child to attend their local school. This should be received by the end of the Spring Term for the following September.


Requests for the admission of pupils who live outside of the school’s local area will always be considered by the school governors taking into account the number of children on roll and the capacity of the building.

Parents of children who live outside the local area should apply in writing to the governors for a place. This should be done by the end of the Spring term of the calendar year in which their child is due to start school in the September.


We will be pleased to hear from parents in the area who have pre-school children so that we can invite them to visit us to look around our school, talk with our staff and become involved in some of our activities. We maintain close links with local play groups and nursery schools.

During the summer term in the year your child is due to start schooling, parents are invited to an evening meeting. At this meeting full details regarding admission, organisation and advice on preparation for school will be given. This is followed by an invitation to parents and their child to look round the school one afternoon after the school day. Your child will then have the opportunity to spend some time in school during the school day and join us for a school lunch. Parents are welcome to stay with their child on this visit if it is felt necessary.



The children take part in a variety of school activities such as sports day, inter school sports matches, drama productions, church festivals, fetes, garden parties and educational visits linked to their topics. During Y5 or Y6 children have an opportunity to attend a residential course.

Through the year we run some after school clubs such as sports and chess.  Children are encouraged to take an active part in village life.

Individual music tuition may be available for Key Stage 2 children during the school day by a visiting musical specialist teacher. This specialised subject is paid for by parents who wish their child to participate.


Children`s learning benefits from your interest and encouragement and we appreciate your support with your child’s home learning. This mainly takes the form of literacy and numeracy including learning number bonds, tables and spellings. It ranges from reading and sharing books with the youngest children to regular tasks covering a wide range of subjects for Year 6 children.
