Kenninghall Primary School is a thriving rural school at the heart of a vibrant community. The school has developed from its Victorian beginnings to boast a modern extension, innovative technology and extensive grounds alongside its beautiful original building.
The school has an excellent record of achieving outstanding results. We pride ourselves on the fact that children leaving the school to go to High School have achieved considerably above the national and local averages in Literacy, Numeracy and Science for several years. Our curriculum is based around an ‘enquiry approach’, which provides children with investigative questions to develop their thinking and understanding of a particular issue, whilst developing their key Literacy and Numeracy skills. This allows children to look in depth at topics that interest and intrigue them. This is one of the reasons OFSTED identified the ‘outstanding’ behaviour of pupils and their enjoyment of learning as a strength of the school.
As well as academic achievement, our school focuses on providing an enthralling, engaging curriculum that develops the whole child. We are a ‘forest school’ and use our impressive grounds to provide an outdoor education that is integrated into the wider curriculum. We take part in (and very often win!) a range of local sport tournaments. Children take part in a range of visits, activities and projects that help their understanding of their local environment and the world around them.
All of the above is made possible by the dedicated staff, polite and enthusiastic children and the supportive community of parents and governors who are all dedicated to helping their school to succeed.
