Welcome to Kippax Greenfield Primary School, part of the Brigshaw Learning Partnership multi-academy trust.
Tucked away from the main hustle and bustle of the village, we are something of a hidden gem! We pride ourselves on being a warm, vibrant school and place high value on our positive relationships with children, parents and the wider community.
Our mission of ‘Growing Greatness at Greenfield’ is at the heart of everything we do here and is supported by our five school values of aspiration, collaboration, resilience, respect and responsibility. These values apply to all aspects of school life: all of our staff and pupils know them, understand what they look, sound and feel like, and can describe how they help them to be successful.
Together, our staff and governing body are committed to growing independent, confident and successful young people who strive to achieve their full potential.
Our inclusive and ambitious curriculum is designed to raise academic achievement whilst engaging and enthusing pupils to ignite a lifelong thirst for learning, no matter what their personal starting points. We want our pupils to feel confident as citizens of our community, but also of the wider world and so we also offer a range of enrichment and extra-curricular opportunities to promote personal as well as academic development.
We think our school is truly incredible but to experience what puts the 'great' into Greenfield for yourself, please contact our school office who will be delighted to book in a time for us to show you around.
Mrs Brown and the Greenfield Team
Our school is organised into five classes covering Reception to Year 6. We want our pupils to be proud of their origins, but be able to imagine a successful life which extends beyond our small corner of the globe. As such, classes are named after Yorkshire cities with universities because we want our pupils to ultimately have the choice of a university education or high-quality alternative of their choosing. Throughout their time with us, all of our children will visit each of the cities to experience all they have to offer. We also make explicit links to our cities in many areas of the curriculum.
Leeds class: Reception and Year 1
Bradford class: Year 1 and Year 2
York class: Year 3 and Year 4
Sheffield class: Year 4 and Year 5
Hull class: Year 6
Our children are also organised into four houses which enable them to compete in teams for sporting events, to mix with different pupils for enrichment activities and to earn rewards for the benefit of the whole group. Our four houses are named after a diverse range of Yorkshire sports men and women who have performed at an international level and are excellent role-models of our 5 school values.
Burrow: Rob Burrow, ex-rugby league player for Leeds and Great Britain
Cockroft: Hannah Cockroft, wheelchair racer and Paralympian
Adams: Nicola Adams, female boxing champion
Brownlee: Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, triathletes and Olympians
