About Us

Kennet Valley Primary School is situated in Ford’s Farm, on the western outskirts of Reading, working within West Berkshire Local Authority. We have space for 210 children and most year groups are full.

Children are admitted in the September after they are four, and we have one class per year group. The school buildings and grounds are extremely secure.

Facilities include a Music Room and Library, children’s kitchen, Nurture Room and Hall, and our School Meals are cooked on site. The school has extensive sports fields, a pleasant garden, a vegetable growing area, a copse and a Quiet Area that is used as an Outdoor Classroom. The Foundation Stage children have their own purpose made area towards the front of the school, and in Key Stage One outdoor learning areas are accessed directly from the classrooms.

The school is organised into four houses: all children and staff, except the Headteacher and Deputy Head are included, as are the governors. The Houses add an extra dimension to the school, and regular ‘House Events’ are much enjoyed.

Our school has been recognised as an Investor in People, received two DfES Improvement Awards and Active Mark, and been re-awarded the Quality Mark for Basic Skills Education for the third time, as well as receiving the Healthy Schools Award and RHS Awards for our School Vegetable Garden
