On behalf of the children, parents, staff and Governors, I would like to warmly welcome you to Kingsclere CE Primary School. Our new school website is designed to provide you with an insight to our daily life within our vibrant school. Our picturesque village offers us a wonderful setting in which to learn!

We are a thriving rural village school at the heart of the community, with a strong family-feel. We pride ourselves on our caring and friendly ethos, where everyone is encouraged to flourish by helping to nurture and develop all talents and gifts. We have a dedicated and professional staff team who work hard to provide every child with rich, exciting learning experiences. Our enquiry curriculum offers opportunities for children to engage, question and build their own ideas in order to become the best learners that they can be. We have high expectations of our children, of their academic attainment, their effort, behaviour and attitude. Our children know that they come to our school to learn.

As a school, we focus on ensuring our children develop the skills that will equip them to succeed in all aspects of their future life. This learning is supported by our excellent resources including IT equipment, library, extensive grounds and school kitchen. It is within easy walking distance of the village church which is regularly used for services and events. Our school swimming pool is open in the summer months to support our chidlren in being able to learn to swim.

Our vision is underpinned by our spirituality and core Christian Values of Love, Courage and Respect. The ethos of our school, our curriculum, policies and practice, and all that we put into place for our community, grow from these roots. As a Church of England school, we welcome children and families of Christian faith, of other faiths and of no faith. We explore our understanding of the Christian faith through examining Christian Values. We believe this supports our children in understanding the importance of morals and core values to become responsible citizens within our world, their decision making both now and in the future.

Thank you for visiting our website, we look forward to welcoming you to our school. Please contact the school office on 01635 298583 to arrange a visit where you can meet our children and staff, and see our exciting curriculum in action – a first-hand experience is always the best one.
