Welcome to Kimpton Primary School! I am very proud to be headteacher at such a caring and welcoming school where pupils, staff, governors, parents and the school community work extremely hard and have high expectations of one another. We are committed to achieving the highest standards of teaching and learning – to ensure that all students fulfill their potential.
Our school is situated in the beautiful village of Kimpton, in Hertfordshire, between Harpenden and Hitchin. Kimpton Primary School is an average sized village school which includes a nursery, catering for children from 3 to 11 years of age.
Kimpton is a caring school, with a team of dedicated professionals with high expectations who all aim to ensure that our children get the most from their education. Every member of staff is committed to providing the children with a safe, happy environment where the children can make the most of every learning opportunity offered to them. At our recent Ofsted, the inspectors commented that:
"all staff want to do their best for the children and pupils at Kimpton Primary School." Ofsted 2018
We aim to be a school where all the children are inspired to see learning as a lifelong experience, thus empowering them to make good choices in later life. A growth mindset and achievement are at the heart of our philosophy; we support this through nurturing pupils’ creativity, encouraging independent thinking and learning and showing that mistakes can be a learning opportunity. Our team of teachers inspire a love of learning through their exciting and enthusiastic approach to topic areas. Learning comes alive through the opportunities that each class are offered.
"Pupils are provided with a creative curriculum that excites them to want to learn more" Ofsted 2018
The school promotes the best possible academic, cultural and moral values. All our children, regardless of background, culture, religious belief or ability, are equally valued, supported and challenged.
"The school's work to promote pupil's personal development and welfare is good. A large contributory factor is that all staff take the time to get to know children and pupils well" Ofsted 2018
Thank you for visiting our school website. We hope it provided you with a wealth of information about the school and our offer to pupils. We are very proud of our school and welcome visitors - we would be very happy to show you around our vibrant learning environment.
We look forward to meeting you.
