Our Collaborative Partnership with Kirkby Malzeard Primary School

Kirkby Malzeard CE and St. Nicholas CE primary schools formed a ‘collaborative partnership’ in September 2013; both schools are also part of the Ripon village cluster and the HART alliance, and the schools work together to provide the very best learning opportunities for all of our children.

As a partnership both schools are working together to design an engaging and inspiring curriculum to meet the requirements of the New National Curriculum for September 2014. This curriculum statement reflects the curriculum taught at both schools.

 Year 5/6 Writing workshop with Author Andy Croft

 The poem below is the out come of a joint writing workshop


Winter Fall

The sky is an icy ocean,

The air is a sharp blade,

The frosty wind is bitter and moist.

Softly, gently, the snow leaves swirl,

Graceful feathers descending through the hollow sky,

Thicker, faster, confetti and petals

The world is loud as an empty house, in a deserted town,

Frozen echoes; weightless and powdery.

It tastes of the winter sky

Sparkling diamonds lie on the floor

Crisp sheets, a new page,










An Audience with Julian Smith MP


Mary reports:

On Friday January 16th Mrs Peacock took me, Grace and some school Councillors from Kirkby Malzeard to Bishop Monkton School to meet Julian Smith who is a Member of Parliament. We were given the chance to talk about some of the things we would like to improve. Some of the issues discussed included his involvement with the Tour de France, the poor phone and broadband signal in some areas, providing a railway track for Ripon and why people are allowed to build on green fields. Mr Smith listened carefully to our questions and tried his best to answer them. We look forward to more meetings with school Councillors from other schools.
