Church School Federation
We are fortunate to live in an amazing part the UK, in an amazing community.
Our Church schools are part of the wider community centered around the town of Kingsbridge. We are fully committed to working towards an education that is seamless from age 2 – 19 and beyond and enjoy productive partnerships with a wide range of other schools and organizations.
Kingsbridge has a host of preschool providers and the federation actively works with these organizations to ensure a consistency of approach from pre-school to primary school. Pre-school children are constantly brought into school for events and joint learning activities.
All Saints', Thurlestone is developing a foundation stage unit, where pre-school children are educated on site and work with reception children on a regular basis. Charleton and West Alvington have pre-school afternoons where the pre-school children come into the classroom to work alongside reception children. The children are so used to being in primary school that transition is easy… children breeze into their reception class without a care in the world!
99.9% of our children move on to Kingsbridge Community College. An outstanding, nationally acclaimed school that deserves all the accolades it has gained. We work in partnership to ensure our curriculum matches the expectations of KCC and gain from a host of joint events and learning opportunities. As with the pre-school children, year 6 children breeze into secondary school!
We are also developing links with our local universities. Children will have the opportunity to visit Plymouth university and work with students and lecturers.
We want our children to be inspired and constantly aim high!
