St Wilfrid's Church
We are very proud of our close relationship with our local Parish Church, St Wilfrid’s. We are very grateful to the members of the Church community who selflessly give their time and expertise to maintain our strong Christian ethos and our school’s high standards.
St Wilfrid’s church was recently named as one of the top 60 churches in Great Britain by the National Churches Trust. Our parish church, which dates back to the 12th century with possible roots going back to the seventh century, was selected by historian and TV presenter Michael Wood who filmed his Story of England BBC series in Kibworth. He praised St Wilfrid’s as “a warm and welcoming place which is packed on the big festivals like Easter or Armistice”.
The Parish Church helps us in many ways. These include: - Governor Support, Church Services, Celebrations, Fundraising and Curriculum Support.
Learning at St Wilfrid's
Familiarisation of our church begins in the Foundation Stage when children visit St Wilfrid’s for their class act of worship and learn songs. In Year One the children visit church to listen to religious based stories and learn about Christian services such as Baptisms and Weddings. The church community organises many special events at the church so that each year group has an engaging experience at St. Wilfrid’s. These include ‘The Journey to Bethlehem’, ‘Narnia’ and ‘Heroes and Villains.
As our school is a Church of England School the Diocese appoints members of the Church Community to be governors of our school. These governors are called Foundation Governors and in addition to the normal responsibilities of a governor they ensure that the Church of England character of the school is preserved and developed.
Services at St Wilfrid's
All our children visit St Wilfrid’s regularly for services led by Revd. Fremmer. At Harvest, Christmas and Easter our children present services in church.
Our children also take part in a range of special services like Christingle and Pentecost.
Members of the Church Community regularly lead the whole school in acts of worship frequently dramatised and based on the ‘Open the Book’ Worship Cycle.
Meg and Gill run the ‘Faith Followers’, a subcommittee of the school council. This group meet every Thursday focussing on our current Christian Value and the Church Calendar.

Teaching schools give outstanding schools a leading role in the training and professional development of teachers, support staff and head teachers, as well as contributing to the raising of standards through school-to-school support. We were pleased to be designated as one of the first 100 teaching schools in the country in July 2011.
Our teaching school, known as Affinity Teaching School Alliance has developed into a successful organisation with over 50 member schools. For further information please visit www.affinitytsa.co.uk
The Primary Science Quality Mark is an award to develop and celebrate the quality of science teaching and learning in primary schools. The Gold award demonstrates that as a school we have sustained and evolving good practice and innovation shared with other organisations.
In the citation accompanying the award the assessor described the nature of science teaching at the school thus: “Kibworth is obviously a shining example of how to teach science and inspire children in independent scientific thinking.”
Artsmark is Arts Council England’s flagship programme to enable schools and other organisations to evaluate, strengthen and celebrate their arts and cultural provision. It is delivered by Trinity College London and 10 regional Bridge organisations drive participation.
Artsmark is nationally recognised as demonstrating excellence in arts and cultural provision and holding Artsmark status demonstrates that your school or setting values the arts and culture.
We are very pleased to have been awarded the prestigious International School Award in summer 2010. This accreditation from the British Council is given only to schools that demonstrate outstanding practice in the international dimensions of teaching and learning.
Fostering an international dimension in the curriculum is at the heart of the British Council’s work with schools, so that young people gain the cultural understanding and skills they need to live and work as global citizens.
To be accredited with the full award, schools have to submit a portfolio of evidence based on an approved action plan of international activities over a twelve month period. Schools must satisfy the following criteria:
An international ethos embedded throughout the school.
A majority of pupils within the school impacted by and involved in international work.
Collaborative curriculum-based work with a number of partner schools, including overseas partners.
Curriculum-based work across a range of subjects.
Year-round international activity.
Involvement of the wider community.
Following our success in gaining the Intermediate Award in 2009, the British Council suggested we were in a strong position to apply for the full award. A year of gathering and collating the evidence for our internationally based activities has resulted in an impressive portfolio, of which we are very proud. Staff and children throughout the school have made fabulous contributions. We will continue to develop our international curriculum, as we strongly believe that international awareness greatly enriches our children’s education and promotes tolerance and understanding.
National Healthy School status requires schools to meet criteria in four core themes relating to the curriculum, emotional, physical and learning environment that the school provides. The award recognises the use of a whole school approach to demonstrate the opportunities it offers to encourage children to lead a healthy lifestyle. The four core themes focus on personal, social and health education, healthy eating, physical activity and emotional health and wellbeing.
Our school is working with Food for Life to transform the school’s food culture and that of its local community, by connecting the children with climate-friendly and healthy food. In our quest to achieve the Food for Life Silver award, we now serve school meals on plates, not flight trays, there is a range of free range, local and organic items on the menu. Pupils can attend a cooking club and get to cook and eat the produce they have grown in school. Parents and the wider community get involved too through food themed events: We are now working towards the Food for Life Gold Award – the ultimate award that recognises schools, which use practical learning experiences to reconnect young people to the food they eat, following the journey from field to plate.
