Welcome to Great Kimble CE School
The mission of Great Kimble School is to provide a caring, Christian community where all children are educated to become confident, happy, successful, independent learners. We believe that effort and attitude towards learning are key indicators for progress: we seek to develop children who have a growth mind-set.
We believe we provide an outstanding quality of education for our pupils. We place a very high emphasis on providing equality of opportunity and personalised learning. This ensures that our pupils have the opportunity to make outstanding progress.
Ethos and Values
Our school welcomes all children into a caring, Christian community where each child matters, and is valued for their individuality.
We embrace children from all cultures and faiths, and those with no religious beliefs. We foster kindness, empathy for others, tolerance, a clear understanding of right and wrong whilst together sharing the joy of learning.
The values which underpin all that we do were chosen by the children, staff and governors and are explored through our daily collective worship, RE and PSHE. Our current values are:
In November 2016 we were graded Outstanding in our statutory Inspection of Anglican and Methodist Schools. We are very proud of this achievement and the inspector highlighted ‘Exemplary relationships and high expectations in this respectful Christian environment ensure these young people grow in confidence and achieve highly’
We are a Buckinghamshire small village school, catering for pupils from 4-7 years. Our catchment area is Kimblewick, Marsh, North Lee, Butlers Cross, Ellesborough, Great and Little Kimble, but we welcome children from all other areas. Parents are very welcome to make an appointment to come to see the school at any time.
Uniform can be obtained from our provider Bucks Schoolwear Plus. You can also visit their shop in Aylesbury to view and try on the uniform.
Project with St Nicholas’ Church
We have been working with St Nicholas’ church and our local community to transform the floor so that our pupils can use the space for drama, PE, etc.
All the necessary permissions have now been granted for the reordering of St Nicholas’ Church. The works will start in October and continue well into 2018. The last service at the Church until after the works will be on Sunday 17th September, prior to closing the Church for services. Sunday services are being transferred to All Saints’ Little Kimble.
Once the work is complete the school will be able to enjoy the much improved facilities and many thanks go to all those who have contributed to this project.
