About Kippax Greenfield Primary School

Kippax Greenfield is a small, friendly school located to the east of Leeds. We pride ourselves on the relationships we build with our children and community. We are a “Rights Respecting School” which puts children’s rights at the centre of everything we do, based on the United Nations Rights of the Child. We currently hold the Level 1 award and we are working towards the Level 2 award. Our school value is Respect: for ourselves, each other and the environment. Our school community is very close knit, with all involved having a strong voice in the decisions we make. Our children are held at the centre of every decision we make. The school council plays a very active role in the development of the school and we also have child health ambassadors supporting them. As children move through the school they have many opportunities to take on responsibilities as play leaders, buddies and peace keepers. We are part of the Brigshaw Learning Partnership Multi-Academy Trust through which we benefit from a large number of opportunities for our children, families and staff. You will work with other teachers across the trust, enabling you to share good practice and benefit from expertise in other schools.
