A message from our Chair of Governors

I have 3 children who all started their education in Kempston Rural Lower School, two who followed the 3 tier Marston and Wootton route and one currently following the 2 tier Great Denham and Biddenham route, unfortunately, just missing out on staying in Kempston Rural for their initial and exciting Year 5.

I have lived in Kempston for over 20 years and have been involved in a local scouts group for 10 of those years, currently acting as their Group Chair. My role of Governor is to focus on the Leadership and Management of the school, ensuring that our children are provided the highest quality teaching as well as all the materials and technology that an Ofsted rated Outstanding school such as ours demands. A key part of the role is to monitor and challenge the teaching standards and pupil results, constantly comparing our excellent results to both local and national figures helping push up our pupil attainment for all of our students.

Finally my overall and overarching objective as a governor is to help all of our pupils and staff flourish and be given the opportunity to realise their potential in a safe and enjoyable environment.

 A Message from Surinder Mahi

I am a parent of 2 children at Kempston Rural Primary School and have lived in the Bedford/Kempston area for my whole life, as well as working for a locally based business for the last 2 decades. Our eldest child has been with the school at a time when the move to a new purpose built school was completed and it is testament to the commitment and hard work of all the staff that their excellent standards have been maintained throughout.

As parent governors it is our duty to actively support the staff in maintaining the school's position as a wonderful place for children to be nurtured and educated, and ensure accountability to the wider community. We all bring different knowledge and expertise to the role but the most important thing is we want to see all children continue to flourish at the school.
