Kettlethorpe Collaborative Partnership


The Kettlethorpe Collaborative Partnership (KCP) was established to further develop school to school working/support and to develop teaching and leadership capacity in order to enhance pupil learning and outcomes at all levels.


Following a period of open and transparent discussion across the Kettlethorpe Pyramid of Schools, the following schools were given approval by their Governing Bodies to work in a more formal manner through the formation of a joint committee:


Federation of Crigglestone & The Castle Nursery Schools  

Dane Royd Junior and Infant School

Hendal Primary Junior and Infant School

Kettlethorpe High School

Mackie Hill Junior and Infant School  

Shay Lane Primary School


The Joint Committee membership involves representation from each of the schools through their Chair of Governors and also their Headteacher. The quorum of the joint committee is three and the committee will elect its own Chair. The meetings are clerked by one of the membership schools and is rotated on an annual basis.
