Our School

Kinderley is a small rural primary school with big aspirations and ideas. We foster a family feel atmosphere where children are nurtured by our caring staff team. There are 83 children on roll between the ages of 2 years 10 months - 11 years, in four mixed aged classes. At Kinderley, we learn, explore, play and flourish together.

Set in a peaceful location, surrounded by open farmland, Kinderley is the northernmost school in Cambridgeshire, close to the borders with Lincolnshire and Norfolk.

Kinderley is a spacious, modern school, opened in September 1987, following the amalgamation of Colville School in Newton and Tydd St Giles Primary School. In addition to four classrooms, we have an inviting school library, main hall, large playing field and playground. Our Early Years Foundation Stage class is housed in a mobile classroom with an extensive outdoor environment.

We warmly welcome visits to the school to see us during the school day in action. Please contact the school office to make an appointment. We look forward to meeting with you and your child.

We have four classes:

Caterpillars and Butterflies: Early Years Foundation Stage

Hedgehogs: Key Stage 1 - Year 1 and Year 2

Otters: Lower Key Stage 2 - Year 3 and Year 4

Foxes: Upper Key Stage 2 - Year 5 and Year 6

Our Vision:

Kinderley school is a place of learning, where we believe ‘the sky is not the limit, it’s just the beginning’. Everyone is valued and positively encouraged to achieve their full potential in a safe and caring environment.
