Welcome to Kendall Church of England Primary School!

You will soon discover that there is never a dull day at Kendall! If you are here to get a feel for what we do the notice board below and the school newsletters are a good place to start. They will give you a flavour of the learning and enrichment activities that the children experience on a day-to-day basis here at Kendall.

At Kendall we are on a journey to become a centre of excellence for outdoor learning. Classes are regularly taken outside and every class experiences our popular weekly Forest School sessions. Children are taught to respect our unique woodland environment and are encouraged to actively participate in school initiatives led by our Eco-School committee.

Our School Vision explains how, as a church school, we aim to be a welcoming, happy and caring place to work and learn. Our Christian Ethos is embedded in our Core Christian Values which weave through every aspect of school life.

Our whole team at Kendall work tirelessly to make sure that our children have the best education possible through a wonderful range of rich learning experiences that inspire and motivate. We have built an environment where children can feel safe and valued, and give them the confidence to be the best that they can be. We teach the values and provide the opportunities for our young people to lead rich and fulfilled lives, and to experience a bright and wonderful future.

I am proud to be Headteacher of our Church School and to share aspects of our school life and work with you.

Mrs Clare French, Headteacher
