Dear Parent,
This prospectus will give you lots of information about our school, including our vision and values. You are also very welcome to visit our brilliant school to look around and ask any questions which are not answered in the prospectus.

I am privileged to have been the Headteacher of Kippax Greenfield since April 2001, leading a talented, enthusiastic, visionary, conscientious and hardworking staff to raise the standard of education offered in developing the whole child.

Kippax Greenfield Primary School is a unique and special place. We feel that learning is an ever open door and that our school encapsulates this through our own individual identity, combining traditional values with a modern vibrant vision and curriculum for life in the 21st Century. It's a very peaceful, happy, friendly and caring school which has been described as revolutionary and at the cutting edge of primary education providing a dynamic, energetic and thinking learning community.

At Kippax Greenfield we are totally committed to the development of your children, to offer them the very best start to their formal education. An education that is rich in learning opportunities and fulfilling and relevant experiences, one that influences a lifelong love of learning. We consider our school to be like a second home and aim to instil in children good values and attitudes that will remain with them all their lives. Primary school days are some of the best days of our lives - we aim to make these unique and special days memorable, interesting, challenging and fun.

The most important rule at Kippax Greenfield Primary School is "Have fun! Be happy! Be good!" This is a community where we learn the importance of caring about each other, sharing with each other, learning to play and communicate, learning to negotiate and compromise. Each person is looked after and is regarded as having the ability to make a strong contribution to the ethos and talents of the whole school. We develop effective thinkers, encourage creativity, promote team work and life skills within a very positive 'can do' culture. Individuality and uniqueness are celebrated. Praise is the hallmark of our discipline and we hope that each person will be proud to call this "Our School".

We establish a supportive and encouraging partnership between home and school; therefore parents will always be welcome in our school. Every effort will be made by an extremely able and dedicated staff to help the children to settle into school within a happy, positive, friendly and mutually supportive environment enabling us to provide the very best in primary education and the beginning of life long learning.

If you are looking for a school place, please telephone to establish if we have any places in that particular year group.

All schools are different and the decision about which one to choose is not easy. We wish you every success in finding the school that best suits your child's unique and special personality, interests and talents and learning styles.

Val Sian

Our Aims

At Kippax Greenfield we believe in a strong community, partnerships between parents and the local community, a sense of lifelong personal and academic development and a commitment to excellence. The school will continue to grow and change but we will always remain true to our vision.

Have Fun:
Our school days should be filled with joy, enquiry, excitement and fun. We should create vibrant memories for our learners to carry with them for life. We must ensure that we promote an environment of mutual respect and of humour. An environment that stimulates and excites, a school where we are confident to smile knowing that we will overcome our challenges and positively address our mistakes, recognising these as opportunities to learn further, a school confident enough to laugh together, a school that our community is proud to call it's own.

Be Happy:
Happiness and confidence that you can achieve and that you're going to enjoy almost every minute of school life makes the pathway of learning an ultimately rewarding experience. What a fantastic adventure we're going to undertake together. It is our responsibility to ensure that every child at Greenfield believes that they have the ability to learn and the self assurance to solve problems and overcome difficulties. We must inspire and enthral, jump on the questions and thinking of our young learners so that they keep the power and mystery of thinking and discovery. Children develop a desire to learn that is borne out of the magic of exploring, learning in a brilliant and stimulating environment. Learning must be relevant, applicable to the 21st Century so that children see a reason for new skills and knowledge. They should be positively encouraged to celebrate the feeling of achievement gained from the new doors they can open, challenges that are overcome and proud of a job well done. More importantly, we want them to be proud of the people that they become.

Be Good:
Learning and maturing, blossoming and developing should be a life long journey of exploration and discovery of new experiences and opportunities. Children's experiences should be full of 'wow' moments combined with strong self discipline and responsibility, ensuring that we can excite and stimulate our pupils while remaining organised and disciplined. We offer them challenges and support, allowing them to learn from their mistakes whilst ensuring good self esteem and show them how to create their own future affirmations. Our lives should be lived in a secure and nurturing environment. We should feel valued and value others no matter what their background, appearance or disability. We should celebrate the past, live for the present and look forward to the future. At Greenfield we look to lead children with the skills that they will need in preparation for their own journey through life.



Our School has adopted the Education Leeds Admissions Policy which is summarised as follows: -

Parents are legally required to have their child educated from the beginning of the term following their fifth birthday. However, in Leeds, children may start school at the beginning of the academic year in which they reach their fifth birthday.

We intake our Reception pupils just once per year, in September.

The school preferencing system form will be available from September each year. Forms can be made available from your local primary school and they must be completed a full academic year in advance of your child starting in Class Reception. They must be returned to our school or the Admissions Unit by the end of October. There is also the opportunity to preference on line. The benefits of working on line is that that the process is quick and easy. It can be done at home, the application can be amended anytime up to the deadline, there is email confirmation that the email has been received and parents can log on for the result on 1st March rather than waiting for the post. All places are allocated on the basis of the school's admission number. Our admission number is 30 per year group.

Criteria for admission

1. Children who are statemented and whose statement names a placement at a particular resourced school or unit.

2. Children wishing to join older brothers or sisters who attend the chosen school at the time the younger child enters.

3. Children whose parents have professed first preference.

These requests are processed as follows: -

The current policy, where a school has more applications than places available, allocates those places on a straight line distance measured from the child's home and will give priority to those children who show a preference for the nearest Leeds school to their home address. For admission purposes the child's home address must be given, not the address of a carer or childminder.

Before allocating the places on distance, Education Leeds will allocate places at the school to those children who already have a brother or sister already attending the school.

The rate of success at primary appeals is lower than secondary due to the government's legislation, which makes it difficult for class sizes to exceed 30.


In the event of any parent not being satisfied with the school curriculum it is hoped that they will first discuss the matter informally with the Headteacher. If, however, a matter cannot be settled in this manner there are arrangements for the more formal approach i.e. a formal complaint to the Governing Body or Education Leeds as appropriate.

Stages in Education Leeds Documentation

Curriculum matters (including R.E.) for which the school is responsible.

The school will make every effort to handle the complaint informally before referring it to the Governing Body. The Governing Body will consider the complaint. The Governing Body will acknowledge the complaint with a copy to Education Leeds for investigation and consideration. If dissatisfied with the outcome the complainant may make a formal complaint to Education Leeds. The Senior Director of policy and co-ordination will investigate the complaint and bring it to the complaints panel.
The complainant will be informed of the outcome and advised on further recourse if appropriate.

Curriculum matters for which the Education Leeds is responsible.

Education Leeds will make every effort to handle the complaint informally before it is referred to the Senior Director of Policy and Co-ordination for formal investigation and consideration by the complaints panel.

The complainant will be informed of the outcome and advised on further recourse if appropriate. Persons involved in formal complaints are referred to the approved Leeds document, which is available at school.

Complaints about individual staff do not fall under these procedures.
