A warm welcome to
Kerr Mackie Primary School
I feel so pleased and proud to be the Head Teacher of Kerr Mackie Primary School. This a happy, caring and safe school, where children, staff and families know that ‘together everyone achieves more’.
We believe that it’s our responsibility to ensure that every child aims high and realises their full potential as a learner for life. Personalising learning and achieving highly is our priority.
We believe every child ‘can be, can do, can change and can achieve’. This is achieved by increasing their confidence and independence, nurturing respect for all, developing resilience and by promoting their collaborative, inquisitive and reflective skills.
Our teaching ensures that learning is accessible and challenging for all. It’s exciting, engaging and prepares our children with skills for life through the wider curriculum projects.
We value every aspect of a child’s development and will work closely with parents and carers, outside agencies, our local, national and global community to make a difference to the lives of each child.
If you haven’t already done so, please do come and visit us to see the Kerr Mackie magic in action.
Looking forward to meeting you soon.
Mrs Jennifer Millington
"The school provides good opportunities for pupils of all abilities and backgrounds to find success"
"Teachers have high expectations and enable pupils to make rapid progress"
"Pupils enjoy learning, work hard and achieve well"
Education must develop every child’s personality, talents and abilities to the full. It must encourage the child’s respect for human rights, as well as respect for their parents, their own and other cultures, and the environment
Thank you to those of you who have already completed the Ofsted questionnaire for parents on the 'Parent View' section of the Ofsted website. Below is a leaflet that explains what the questionnaire is and why it is important for your child's school.
To help you we have put the following instructions together but staff and Governors will be at Parents Evenings again this evening to support this process further.
Given a delay in 30 minutes from registering on the Parent View section, I would encourage you at some point today, if you had time, to register so that tonight you have a password and can complete the questionnaire in school. Please note though that you actually complete it anytime. When we have enough entries we can access the information and celebrate the strengths plus address any concerns.
