Welcome to Goudhurst & Kilndown Church of England Primary School

 Re-opening of schools.

Following the Governments decision to the wider opening of schools from June 1st, I am delighted to confirm that we are open for all the priority year groups, plus our Key Worker children.

Pupils and staff are organised in protective ‘bubbles’ - groups of no more than 15 pupils with assigned staff to support only one ‘bubble.’   There is also a group of Keyworker’s children not in Years R, 1 or 6 who continue to work together as a separate bubble. We already have 7 'bubbles.'

Thank you to all the staff for their continued dedication.

For now we 'Stay at Home' - a video by the staff of the 10:10 Federation - Goudhurst & Kilndown and Benenden CE Primary Schools.




We are at the heart of our community of beautiful Wealden villages of Goudhurst and Kilndown in Kent and have seven classes of 30 children aged 4-11 years.  Our school is a caring, happy place and we know this comes from our Christian values as a Church of England school which underpin everything we do. We are an inclusive school and welcome children of all abilities, backgrounds and faiths.  We work hard to build a partnership with all our parents and keep in mind the child’s well-being and progress in their education in everything we do. Our school was judged by OFSTED to be “Outstanding” in all areas of the inspection framework and we are very proud of this achievement. In February 2016 we also became a National Support School and we are committed to helping local schools and colleagues bring about rapid school improvement. We hope our website provides you with everything you would like to know about our school.  If you would like to come and meet us please do get in touch.
With kind regards,

Lindsay Roberts - Executive Headteacher

National Leader of Education
