Welcome to our website. I hope you explore the pages and find out more about the school. We are very proud of our school here in Kingsdown. There are 202 children in 7 classes. We try hard to provide a happy and secure environment and to give all the children the opportunity to develop and to reach their potential.

The school was built 18 years ago and is set in very attractive grounds. There are excellent links with parents, the Church and the community.

Kingsdown & Ringwould Church of England Primary School is situated on a very attractive site on the upper level of Glen Road, Kingsdown. Our Church of England controlled school was founded in 1873 and moved to new buildings in 1987.

The accommodation consists of seven class bases, an activity/drama area, hall, medical room, SEN/support room, computer room, kitchen and staff-room as well as the usual office accommodation. There is a conservation area and pond in the school grounds, ample play space and an adjoining field.

The main hall, equipped with a stage, is also used as a gymnasium with fixed and portable apparatus.

In addition to a teaching staff of seven teachers and eleven learning support assistants there is a secretary, finance secretary, admin assistant, nine midday meal supervisors, a cook and kitchen assistant and a caretaker.

All visitors to the school should call at the reception area. There is a security lock on the internal door. Please ring for attention.


Over-riding Aims

Adventure playgroundTo provide a caring environment of mutual respect for children, parents and staff, within which we will maintain and develop the quality of teaching and learning. for each individual child.

To create a school which both children and parents will remember with pleasure and appreciation.

Through our assemblies our teaching of Religious Education and the provision of opportunities to enjoy Art, Music and Games we will provide for the spiritual, moral, cultural and social needs of our school community.

How will we achieve these aims?

Reception entranceEveryone who works in our school will be valued as an individual. All pupils will be encouraged to feel that they are contributing to the "family" of the school.

We will have hlgh expectations of our children and all will be given praise and recognition for their work and efforts across all areas of learning and experience.

Staff will work as a team, sharing expertise and skills, to plan and review curriculum provision, resources and policies in order to create a coherent learning experience.

Staff will support one another with understanding in a sympathetic and sensitive way during times of need.

We will strive to enhance feelings of self-esteem in individuals. We will encourage an atmosphere of trust and openness where everyone can "grow."

Children will be encouraged to be independent. They will be expected to care for one another, for their equipment, books, classroom and school as a whole. They will be encouraged to take pride in all they do.

Governors and staff will liaise closely with parents, the PTFA and the local community. They will seek to work with them in partnership.


The Governors' Curriculum Policy is in line with the Kent Curriculum Statement and its aims and objectives. The children follow the National Curriculum that includes the core subjects of, English, Science, Mathematics and Information & Communication Technology (I.C.T) plus the foundation subjects of Design & Technology, History, Geography, Physical Education, Art and Music. Religious Education must also be provided. The National Curriculum Orders, Kent Curriculum Statement and Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education are available for inspection at the school upon request. In addition, some French and Spanish are taught informally in the school.

The Aims and Organisation of the Curriculum

The curriculum aims may be summarised as follows

  • to create a stimulating environment to encourage a sense of curiosity and zest for understanding our world and those who live in it.
  • to develop the ability to communicate effectively through language spoken and written and by expressive action.
  • to provide the facilities for all pupils to become thoroughly numerate and literate and to be to competent in basic practical skills.
  • to foster an awareness of beauty and design, and to develop aesthetic sense.
  • to encourage the development of sensitivity to the needs of others, of moral responsibility and understanding of the meaning of religious belief and respect for the beliefs of others.
  • to encourage a respect for a healthy body and mind.
  • to develop the "whole child" in preparation for the opportunities, responsibilities, and experiences of adult life. 

Organisational Strategies and Teaching Techniques

All teachers employ a mixture of whole-class teaching group work and individual tasks. As the children move through the school, opportunities for individual, independent learning increase. We also encourage our children to work collaboratively and expect them to be able to do this away from direct teacher supervision, recognising that these skills are the key to success in future years. Typically, lessons will begin with an input from the teacher to the whole class, and end with a summary of the learning that has taken place.

In order that these aims be achieved, it is important that the curriculum is balanced and broadly based. The National Curriculum subjects, detailed on the following pages, together with Religious Education, provide the basic school curriculum.
