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.
Please take a look at our virtual tour video:

Data Protection Regulations: have changed and as a result we have updated our privacy notices. This is all part of our continued commitment to compliance and protecting your personal information. We are not changing how we use or collect your information, rather our policy more clearly explains how, why, where and when we store and process your data, and also reflects your rights under the GDPR. A copy of the Privacy Notice for Parents / Carers can be accessed here.
Parking: 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. We also ask that parents/carers park vehicles considerately especially at the beginning and end of the school day. The Swallows Nest and The Sun have kindly agreed for parents/carers to use their car parks providing parents/carers do not park in or near the entrances. Thank you.
