Our School Priorities 2022/23

1.Developing high expectations in  all subjects- Continue to develop impact marking with specific focus to punctuation, spelling, letter formation, neat handwriting and sentence structure.  Create many opportunities to write within the day to promote writing fluency.  

2.Promote self-regulating and positive thinking especially in light of COVID and the time during lockdown- Using Thrive awareness, gardening, singing and Buzz Compass training to support and engage pupils into having a positive and healthy attitude to life and learning.

3. Supporting all pupils- clearing misconceptions when they arise and providing intervention for target children whenever possible. Accelerate learning by facilitating learners to self assess, peer assess and provide up levelling opportunities, where possible.

Keeping our children safe


At Kirk Smeaton Church of England School we believe in safeguarding and developing the whole child. We believe all children have a right to expect a quality education regardless of gender, race, culture or disability and be given opportunities to achieve their full potential.


Safeguarding Children
Kirk Smeaton Church of England Primary School is committed to ensuring the welfare and safety of all children in school. All North Yorkshire schools, including ours, follow the North Yorkshire Safeguarding Children Board procedures. The school will, in most circumstances, endeavour to discuss all concerns with parents about their children. However, there may be exceptional circumstances when the school will discuss concerns with Social Care and/or the Police without parental knowledge (in accordance with Child Protection procedures). The school will, of course, always aim to maintain a positive relationship with all parents. The school's child protection policy is available on request.

Keeping Children Safe in Education 

What to do if you're worried a child is being abused 


We are part of a project called Operation Encompass which runs between schools in North Yorkshire, and North Yorkshire Police, designed to provide early reporting to schools of domestic abuse incidents that occur outside of normal school hours and that might have had an impact on a child attending our premises.
