A warm welcome to Keyingham Primary School. We’re a school with years of educational life and experience that gives the school its unique atmosphere and place in the community. Our children find themselves in a busy and enthusiastic learning environment where there is always much to do, see and learn. We aim to provide a stimulating and structured environment in which all members of the school community are valued.
We hope that you will find this website useful, informative and “to the point”. You should get a good impression of the school’s life and ethos. We are committed to providing the very best for the children at Keyingham Primary and we believe that this means a great deal more than simply those results that can easily be tested and presented in tables.
Primary schooling should be about developing children’s learning attitudes and their characters so that they will want to go on learning for ever, and although this means high standards in English and Maths, it means so much more besides.
The School PTA
Aims and ethos express the goals and expectations of the school. They express the general targets that we aim for when giving a safe and secure place of learning for your child. Every school needs these clear sets of aims in order to fulfil their vision and values in their pursuite of excellence.

They will show our dedicaton to your child having not only the best learning experience that we can give but also growing as a person to enable them to tackle their next challenges in life. To enable them to do well as they grow in their education and to be the beginning point in a love of life long learning.

Statistics & Results
The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.
The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.
Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.
