The school will be closed to children from Tuesday 5th January until further notice, except for vulnerable children and those of critical workers. Please visit our COVID-19 Information page for all information.

Reminder: if your child displays any symptoms of Covid19, the guidance is that you must get a test and keep them off school until you can show school a negative test result, or alternatively isolate for 10 days.

Welcome to Rudyard Kipling Primary School.

At Rudyard Kipling, children are at the centre of everything we do and we are proud to offer a inspiring, inclusive and creative learning environment, where every child can succeed and become a confident learner. Our nurturing Early Years Provision develops a love of learning through Nursery into Reception. We are fortunate to have extensive outdoor space, which we use actively as part of our daily learning and we have recently become a Forest School. The children are proud of their school and thrive on celebrating their successes. Parents and carers are invited to come and celebrate their children’s learning at every opportunity.

We feel very much a part of the local community with strong links with the Deans Sport Partnership and other local schools. For example, children are offered opportunities to participate in sporting events and educational activities with children from the local area. This enables our children to become positive role models within our community. I feel privileged to be the Headteacher of such a successful and inclusive school.

Please come to visit and have a look around our lovely school and see what we can offer your family. To view our Prospectus please click here
