Welcome to Kempston Rural Primary  

 An Outstanding School

Daily Mile

The children at Kempston Rural Primary School are thoroughly enjoying their morning 'Daily Mile.' Children begin each morning with 15 minutes of exercise with their class teacher running (or walking when necessary).  We have noticed a huge increase in concentration levels amongst our children.  This has added an extra 1hour and 15 minutes physical activity each week for every child, which has already shown fantastic results in increased stamina.

Music Performance

The whole school enjoyed a fabulous music performance from Bedford musicians. They learnt about a range of instruments and what the musician needs to do in order for them to work. The children enjoyed listening to a range of songs including current pop hits, film theme tunes and also had the opportunity to clap sing along . 

SPAG Morning for KS1 and KS2 Parents

The Grammar and Punctuation mornings were a great success. Thank you to all those parents who supported this event.  For parents that did not attend, but would like to receive a parent training pack, please contact Mrs Redmond via the school email address office@kempstonrural.co.uk and we will ensure that it goes home with your child.

Forest School

It is recognised that children benefit considerably both emotionally and academically from receiving an outdoor curriculum. Research shows that children and young people are stimulated by the outdoors and typically experience, over time, an increase in their self-belief, confidence, learning capacity, enthusiasm, communication and problem – solving skills and emotional well-being. For this reason the school has developed its own Forest School area, where children across the school regularly take part in 'outdoor' learning.

We care about E-Safety at Kempston Rural Primary School. The children worked hard to create this display which shows the importance of keeping safe on the internet.

The children worked together to make an ICT vision.

'We believe that ICT at Kempston Rural Primary School is fun. It helps us to search for new information and extend our learning. It is typing, using the internet safely, working with computers and IPads. We want to learn new skills all the time because we use ICT everywhere. It is a lifelong important skill'.

Our Year Four class made us a rap called 'Internet Safety Isn't Boring!'

Happy Chinese New Year!

The New Year has started and the children are all enjoying their new topics.

In line with 'The School Information (England) (Amendment) Regulations 2012', we no longer issue a paper copy of our school prospectus. Instead our Website is our online prospectus. The benefit of this is that information can be updated instantly and parents are therefore better informed. Our website includes all relevant information, however, if there is any further information that you require, or you require a paper copy of any information on our school website, please do not hesitate to contact our school office on 01234 854286 or email office@kempstonrural.co.uk
