From this September onwards there is a new Executive Head Teacher at the School - Sarah Taylor -  and she recently spoke to the Parish magazine covering West Tanfield where she will also be fulfilling the same role at their School:

'I am delighted to be able to introduce myself as the new Executive Head Teacher of Kirkby Malzeard C of E and St Nicholas C of E Schools. I have spent over 20 years in the teaching profession, initially in inner city Salford and then in North Yorkshire, after relocating to the Nidderdale area 15 years ago. As a mum of two children, who both attended a village primary School, I am passionate about supporting village schools so they can continue to provide excellent standards of education in a nurturing environment where children thrive. We are all excited about the year ahead , and look forward to continuing to work in a close partnership with the local community. I look forward to meeting you all at the events over the coming year'.
