"A small school with a big heart."

"Pupils are proud of their school. Their good behaviour and positive attitudes make a strong contribution to their success."

Ofsted January 2013

Welcome to Mackie Hill Junior and Infant School, and our website, which will give you a flavour and insight to our busy school.


There is certainly a lot going on in the school, and our wider community, as we respond to the challenges that followed a disappointing Ofsted inspection last December.


As a result of this, a lot of focussed activity has taken place, both for the pupils with their learning, as well as the exciting plans involving the creation of a through school with Kettlethorpe High School.


The council are currently consulting on plans to see the two schools combine form January 2019.  Ultimately, this will mean that the schools will remain operational on both current sites and Mackie Hill Junior and Infant School will benefit from close working links and guaranteed places at the high school at transition in Year 7.


In order to support our work we are delighted to have secured the services of Mrs Jayne Elliott, as Acting Headteacher.  She has been released from our partner school, Dane Royd Junior and Infant School, and will work with the staff and pupils until the end of the summer term; the school is currently advertising for a new Head of School for September 2018.


During my short association with the school I have been really impressed with the way the pupils involve themselves in their learning and the desire with which the whole staff are working to make the school a better and great place for all.


Do please get in touch if you have any questions regarding the work of the school.  We look forward to meeting you in our wonderful school.


Very best wishes.


Tudor Griffiths

Acting Executive Headteacher
