Our School

Kempsford Primary School is at the heart of the community in the village of Kempsford and provides equal access to the curriculum for all pupils in a caring, well-resourced environment.

This will enable all children to be happy whilst reaching their full potential and developing a sense of self-worth within a Christian ethos.

Our widely recognised high standards and expectations, together with good academic achievement, will form the foundation for the next stage in our children’s education and give them confidence for their future.

After School Club: 

We have an After School Club on-site, which runs during term time from 3.15pm until 6.00pm Monday through to Thursday, and from 3.15pm until 5.00pm on a Friday.

Breakfast Club: 

Our on-site Breakfast Club operates weekdays from 8.00am until 8.35am during term time.

The Hive:

Our Foundation Stage Unit accepts children from 2 1/2 – 5 years of age and is set within the grounds of the school, with a private connecting gate, providing direct access to the School. The main school and The Hive work closely to ensure that the transition to ‘Big School’ is as smooth as possible each year.

Friends of Kempsford Primary School:

We have a very active Friends Committee, who organise events throughout the year to raise money to benefit all the children in the school. All parents are welcome to attend the Friends meetings, details of which can be found in the Newsletters in our News section.

School Council:

The School Council consists of two representatives of each year group from Year One to Year Six. The representatives are chosen by a pupil vote and meet at regular intervals throughout the year.

House Captains:

The honour of House Captain is bestowed upon our Year 6 students, who are nominated by pupil vote.

Weymouth Trust:

The Trustees of the Weymouth Trust meet three times a year. Interest raised from monies invested is used to provide the Year 6 leavers with the gift of a bible, and achievement awards are given to children who have excelled in certain areas.

Church of England:

We have strong links with St Mary’s Church, Kempsford, and school Services are held either at the Church or in the School Hall several times a year.

Governing Body: 

There are currently 10 members of the Full Governing body. The current Chair is Mr Darren Jeffrey, who can be contacted through the Clerk to the Governors on 01285 810367 or clerk@kempsford.gloucs.sch.uk. For further information regarding our Governors, please go to the ‘Governors’ section of the website.

Schools Cluster:  

We are part of a local cluster of Primary Schools, who work closely together, sharing experience, expertise and resources. Cluster staff training sessions often take place, as do workshops and sporting events for the children.
