Welcome to St Kenelm's CE Primary School
I would like to offer you a warm welcome to St. Kenelm's CE Primary School. We are a one class per year village school with strong links to the local community, situated in a beautiful, rural setting.
Ours is a happy school with a family atmosphere where everyone is known, understood and cared for. We believe that building high self-esteem and confidence is the key to success in order that each individual can achieve their potential. We aim to develop a strong sense of citizenship in our children within the school, local, national and global community.
We have high expectations of each individual at St.Kenelm's and we expect everyone to do their best. We strongly believe that fostering a real passion for learning is crucial to achievement and we try to enhance this through a whole range of experiences both within and outside the classroom environment through an exciting and vibrant curriculum.
As a church school, we have a strong relationship with St. Kenelm's church community and our Christian values underpin everything we do. However, we believe that we should develop the spirituality of all our children whether they are of the Christian faith, other faiths or of no faith.
St Kenelm's is an open, friendly school and parents are always welcomed and encouraged to be partners in school life. We value a happy, secure, relaxed yet purposeful environment and a tour of the school will demonstrate the respect, the fun and the challenge we offer.
We are really excited to be launching our new School Mobile Phone App! Please see the 'Mobile App' page in our 'For Parents' section for further details and how to download the App FREE to your mobile phone to keep up to date with school news and receive alerts from school which can be adapted to meet your interests within school and your child's specific year group as well as whole school alerts all direct to your mobile phone.
We would like to wish everybody a very warm welcome back to School - we hope you had a lovely summer break. We are in the process of reviewing and updating our Website so please keep having a look. Our Calendar has been updated to include all known dates for the current academic year and this can be accessed in our 'Parents' section, as can copies of letters and downloadable versions of frequently asked for forms. Newsletters can be viewed in the 'News' section.
We would ask you to note that due to unavoidable circumstances, there will be some disruption to the crossing patrol outside school during the next 2 weeks. Specifically there will be not be a patrol before school on Thursday 14th September and before and after school on Tuesday 19th September. We will let you know if there will be any further disruption during this period. We apologise for any inconvenience.
In the interests of safety please could we ask parents to refrain from mounting and driving along the pavement to let oncoming traffic by before and after school. We appreciate that the road outside of school gets incredibly busy but we would ask for your patience in letting other road users by rather than jeopardising the safety of children and other pedestrians.
