What our staff say


Shaheen Khan - Parent Involvement Officer

I joined Killinghall Primary School as a volunteer Nursery Nurse approximately 15 years ago, reading with children. I took advantage of some training on offer in school from Bradford College in ICT and this enabled me to gain a part time clerical position at Killinghall. I then applied for and was successful in my application to become the school’s part time Parental Involvement Officer, which eventually became a full time post.

Killinghall Primary School has always encouraged me to undertake training. I now work closely with the Deputy Heads in my role as Parental Involvement Officer and have made vast improvements in attendance at school and parental involvement.

I have seen the school through two stages of expansion. Money is still being invested in the school with the development of a new Nursery provision for two year olds.

We work in a fantastic new building and I love coming to work, it is challenging and rewarding.
I am currently doing a Foundation Degree in Early Years.

Amina Javed,  Assistant Headteacher

This is my tenth year working at Killinghall Primary School, I started working at the school as an NQT in Reception in 2009. The school is most definitely a welcoming, supportive and rewarding place to work. The staff are hardworking and do the absolute best for all the children.

When I started teaching I was highly ambitious and keen to further develop my career and was given this opportunity many times at Killinghall. This was all down to the great support network and training opportunities I was provided with to improve my professional skills and knowledge. This led to my initial promotion as a TLR for English and year group leader. I have been promoted again and currently I am working as an Assistant Headteacher in Key Stage 1.

During my time here, I have taught in EYFS and Key Stage 1, standards are high at our school but there is a great sense of self-satisfaction when you see the children flourish with their learning and make great progress throughout school.

The school has always been dedicated to my personal and professional development, which has enabled me to fulfil my professional commitments and leadership roles effectively. I would happily recommend Killinghall Primary School if you are ambitious, dedicated and committed to professional development.

Victoria Ward

Victoria Ward – Deputy Headteacher

This is my fourth year at Killinghall Primary. I joined the school as Assistant Head for KS1 and enjoyed three years in that role, but thanks to the continuous professional development encouraged by the senior leadership team, I have now taken up the position of Deputy Headteacher.

Working at Killinghall can be hard work but is also a lot of fun. The staff team are supportive of each other and there is never any shortage of people happy to help.

Part of my role involves mentoring and coaching students, NQTs and current staff to ensure their professional needs are met, that they feel well mentored and are happy in their own roles. We have many success stories of students who never want to leave and of support staff completing further training to teach. At Killinghall, ambition is nurtured and encouraged.

Angela Simpkin

Angela Simpkin - HLTA

When I first joined Killinghall Primary School, as a teaching assistant, I had no idea then that I would still be here 22 years later. I have seen the school grow from a small first school to now a much larger 3 form entry primary school.

Many years ago, when HLTA's were first introduced into schools, I was pleased to be given the opportunity to gain the HLTA status. I have progressed from a teaching assistant to a cover supervisor and for the past 10 years (approximately) my current role as the HLTA within school.

I enjoy coming to work and feel proud and privileged to be a valued member of this school.

Khizar Zaman - Year 5 Teacher

I have been working full-time at Killinghall Primary School since February 2006. The school has a good reputation and really impressive facilities and learning environment. The needs of the children are catered for in every way and there is a strong community feel within the school and good relationships between parents and staff. The support of the staff, the teamwork and fantastic atmosphere is a huge strength of the school.

I started working here as a Teaching Assistant and during my time here, I have had some great experiences supporting students with SEND and working alongside many amazing colleagues. I have been offered countless opportunities for professional development and have successfully progressed from being a Teaching Assistant and completing my teacher training to my fourth year as a Qualified Teacher, the support and encouragement has been brilliant.

The training and development opportunities that Killinghall Primary School provide are second to none and I look forward to continuing to progress personally with the support of the school.

I can happily recommend Killinghall Primary School to both newly qualified and experienced teachers.

Lynne Clegg

Lynne Clegg – Assistant Headteacher

I first came to work as a teacher at Killinghall Primary School in 1992 after qualifying from university. I taught children across the different age ranges for 17 years and thoroughly enjoyed every moment in this school, working with some inspirational children, colleagues and families. In 2009 I ventured into a new role and worked as a teacher trainer, passing on the valuable skills and knowledge gained from my exciting career to the next generation of teachers. During this time, I worked across a variety of mainstream and special schools in Bradford and I gained a Master’s Degree in Special Educational Needs and Inclusive Education.

In 2015 I seized the opportunity to return to Killinghall Primary School and I now work as Special Educational Needs Coordinator and I teach the children in our wonderful Raise Room each morning. I thoroughly enjoy my job working in this friendly, warm and welcoming inclusive school. Each day brings new challenges and it is a pleasure to come to school and be a part of a community which is committed to helping all children and staff develop to their full potential.

Rifat Khanum

Rifat Khanum – Catering Unit Manager

I started working at Killinghall as a volunteer as I had four children in this school. My first job was in 2009 as a General Kitchen Assistant. I came in to help out as the school was short staffed, applied for the job and got it. After one year I was appointed as Assistant Kitchen Manager and I am now the Catering Unit Manager. I love working here and I am more than thrilled to have had all the opportunities to progress as I have at Killinghall. It is all team work at Kilinghall and people work together well like a big family.
