A very warm welcome to Kimpton, Thruxton and Fyfield Church of England Primary School. We hope this website gives you a good insight into what our school is like and shows you just what a special place it is.
A Caring Community
On behalf of our vibrant school community, I extend a heartfelt welcome to you. We believe that our school is more than just an institution of learning; it is a sanctuary where children can discover their true potential, develop a deep appreciation for faith, and grow into compassionate, responsible, and contributing members of society.
Our dedicated teachers foster a spirit of inclusivity and support, ensuring that every child feels valued and empowered. They create a stimulating learning environment where curiosity is encouraged, creativity is nurtured, and academic excellence is nurtured alongside spiritual growth.
Nurturing Curiosity and Creativity
At our school, we wholeheartedly embrace the power of outdoor learning, recognising its profound impact on children's well-being and holistic development. Our dedicated forest school provision provides a haven for exploration, creativity, and self-discovery. Our students engage in hands-on activities that foster their natural curiosity and problem-solving skills. They learn to identify flora and fauna, build shelters, and navigate the wonders of the natural world.
We believe that outdoor learning is an essential element of a holistic education, preparing our students to become well-rounded individuals who are not only academically proficient but also compassionate, resourceful, and deeply connected to the natural world.
We believe that character education is not just about teaching children what is right and wrong; it is about empowering them to make informed decisions and live a life guided by strong moral principles. We encourage our students to be compassionate and understanding, to treat others with respect and kindness, and to stand up for what is just. We foster integrity by encouraging honesty, fairness, and accountability. We nurture independence by empowering our students to think critically, make their own choices, and take responsibility for their actions. We encourage reflection by providing opportunities for our students to introspect, learn from their experiences, and grow as individuals. We promote resilience by helping our students develop the inner strength to overcome challenges and setbacks. And we foster collaboration by providing opportunities for our students to work together, learn from each other, and achieve common goals.
Our commitment to character education extends beyond the classroom walls. We believe that residential trips and outdoor experiences provide valuable opportunities for our students to apply their character values in real-life situations. These experiences allow them to build confidence, develop leadership skills, and appreciate the importance of teamwork and community.
We are confident that our school provides an exceptional education for all of our students where we aim to nurture the whole child, fostering academic excellence, spiritual growth, and social well-being. We encourage you to visit us and see for yourself what makes our school so special.
