Kirklington and Averham Manners Sutton Collaboration

Welcome to our Collaboration

Kirklington Primary School and Averham Manners Sutton Primary School have been working together in a formal collaboration since April 2018 under the leadership of an executive head and a joint collaboration committee of the two governing bodies.
We are both small, rural, primary schools, just ten minutes apart via the A617, with approximately 120 pupils between us.
Our aim is to give our children as many worthwhile experiences as possible while at primary school – not just academic, but also sporting and creative – in order to enrich their education, extend their personal development and reach their full potential, not just academically but creatively and personally too.
Since our collaboration began, we have worked closely to align our broad and balanced curriculum, share school policies and procedures and seek opportunities for our pupils to share experiences and events together.
Our staff also work closely together to plan sequences of work, moderate attainment standards across the two schools and the family of schools, and support each school through collaborative subject leadership and development.
Both schools can provide a rich and varied curriculum which takes account of individual needs as well as developing the whole child. Much of what we can offer is bespoke, with pastoral support and targeted provision for individuals a feature of both schools.
The schools share an executive head teacher, a SENDCo and subject leaders. Both schools have strong links with their locality and have quick access to the local countryside for environmental work. We share an exciting curriculum with additional emphasis on personal development and environmental awareness.
To see either school, please contact the office manager for a suitable time. Visits are always welcome from interested parents without obligation.


Admissions are handled by the Local Authority.
