‘Pupils come willingly to school and attend regularly. They engage well with any new learning and take pride in their work. Pupils are kind and considerate to one another. Older pupils show support in the playground to younger children. Leaders ensure that pupils are safe…The school is the hub of the village community and valued greatly.’

Ofsted December 2019 – ‘Kennall Vale continues to be a good school’
