   Headteacher's WELCOME

On behalf of the staff, children and governors I would like to welcome you to our school website.  It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as Headteacher of Kerr Mackie Primary School. It is an absolute privilege to have been appointed by the school Governors and entrusted with the job of leading such an amazing school.

Kerr Mackie Primary School is a vibrant school where children are enthusiastic and motivated to achieve endless possibilities. The needs of the children are always paramount in the life and decision making within a school. I strongly believe in providing the children with exciting, creative and meaningful learning experiences, which build their enthusiasm for learning and help them to grow and develop positively in a variety of ways. I think it is crucial to involve the children and their families as partners in their education. I am also keen on building a whole school community which thrives on mutual respect and values positive relationships.

We have a hardworking staff who know their pupils very well and constantly strive to achieve the best for them both on an academic and pastoral level.

Visitors are always welcome. Please get in touch if you would like to come and visit and see us all in action!

We hope you enjoy your visit to our website and that you find all the information you are looking for.  If you cannot find the information you were looking for you can contact the school directly using the contact details above.

Spotlight on Kerr Mackie 

Year 4, 5 and 6 had a brilliant time meeting Dermot O'Leary.  All the pupils listened to Dermot talk about his inspiration behind his new book, 'Wings of Glory' and what motivated him to become an author.  Pupils then took part in a Q&A session before being given a signed copy of his new book.

We were so proud and excited for our pupils to be able to represent Kerr Mackie on ITV's 'This Morning'.  We were the only Primary School to be featured on the show for World Book Day 2024 and it was a brilliant experience to show off our amazing and rich reading culture.

We were chosen to showcase the efforts and talents of our pupils and families because our theme 'Homemade Heroes' resonated with so many.

We were thrilled that the Yorkshire Evening Post visited Kerr Mackie in December to do a feature on the grand opening of our new amazing new multi-purpose classroom. Their visit also coincided with our KS2 Christmas Enterprise challenge so they were able to feature some pictures of that as well!

Our new space has been built as a multi-purpose workspace, hosting a range of lessons and serves as the base for our breakfast and after-school club wraparound care.
