Kempston Rural

  1. PTA

The PTA is for any parent that wishes to get involved and help to raise money for the school. The money raised goes back into the school and is for the children. In the past the PTA have raised money for new library books, pantomimes and even Easter treats!  Any contribution of time given to the PTA is of great value. If you think you can spare an hour of your time to help make an event great or could come to the PTA meetings and get involved then please get in touch using the contact below.  


We look forward to hearing from you! :) 

Please look out for new information on our facebook page.

Sponsored Walk

Thank you to parents for all of your support with the sponsored walk. We raised a staggering £3,500 for the school which will be spent on books to support learning in all curriculum areas. The children did fantastically, some of them managing to complete over 20 laps of the field. Well done to all of them. 

World Book Day 2023

The staff and children have passed on their thanks to the PTA for organising another fabulous book swap. Every child in the school was able to take home at least one book and this event has really inspired the children to read. Thank you to parents for all of the book donations.

Break the rules day 2020

We have some fantastic news......
Thanks to all your help in fundraising throughout last year, Friends of Kempston Rural Primary PTA can happily announce that we can purchase both the much needed sunshades this year for the school playground, which is absolutely amazing...
As Chair of the PTA I wanted to say a massive THANK YOU to each and everyone that has made this possible, I couldn't do this without you!  Also thank you to all my Committee Members (Phil, Judy, Gemma & Selina), as well as supporters and helpers that helped out at events too, without your help and dedication this would not have been possible in such a short time.
The Sunshade Sails will look to be installed a little later in the year once the weather gets better.

The 10p challenge caused quite a stir amongst the children and staff and they battled to be the class with the most! Each class worked as a team to collect the most but the final winners were:

3rd place- Year 3 Owls - 20 metres 8 cm
