Kibworth CE Primary School is a large, three-form entry village primary school, judged as ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2010. Being this size offers many advantages, we can offer a wide range of learning opportunities along with a real sense of family within the school.

Children at Kibworth are encouraged to find out about their own strengths and talents to allow them to strive to achieve the best they can all the time. A high expectation underpins all that we do, and children continue to improve through understanding the process of learning and ongoing assessment to ensure they are learning what they need to know next. We try to create a curriculum that is matched to children’s next steps in learning and one which children feel they are involved with focus of their learning. Our school’s high standards of behaviour allow children to focus on learning. This is supported by positive reinforcement of our expectations, awarding of house points and other certificates in our weekly achievement assembly.

School is far more than a place in which to work and learn. It is also a place where we begin to build relationships with other people, find out how to work collaboratively, develop a sense of ourselves, and discover how we as individuals fit into our world and society. We believe that it takes a whole community to educate a child, so we aim to work in partnership with parents, both individually and collectively. As a Church of England Controlled school, we have strong links with the Parish Church of St Wilfrid’s and the school is also an important part of the community of Kibworth parishes and Smeeton Westerby. At Kibworth, the Christian ethos of the school goes far beyond the Religious Education curriculum. In work and play children are given the chance to find out about the beliefs and values of other people, to discover that there are as many similarities as differences between human beings, and that only by understanding these differences can we learn to live together in peace.
