The KULB Federation is a partnership of three small village primary schools in rural Kent, near the county town of Maidstone. The federation is currently supporting a fourth school following its OFTSED rating of requires improvement. Two schools are Church of England primary schools and two are community primary schools. The three schools have been in successful partnership since January 2014. The KULB vision is: We aim to be an outstanding federation at the heart of our culturally diverse communities, striving for excellence, enabling our children to achieve their highest potential in all areas of the curriculum in line with each school’s values and beliefs. This is summed up by the motto:
Kingswood Primary School is situated in beautiful wooded grounds in the village of Kingswood and is the largest of the 3 schools, with 125 pupils and 5 classes. It was last inspected by OFSTED in March 2017 and was judged to be a "Good" school.
Ulcombe Church of England Primary School has around 80 pupils in three classes. It was last inspected in April 2016 and was judged to be a "Good" school. Ulcombe is a unique setting as the majority of its pupils are from minority ethnic backgrounds. Ulcombe has been on a journey of improvement and we are striving to continue on this path.
Ulcombe School has strong Christian values of “Forgiveness, Thankfulness, Trust, Friendship, Endurance, Compassion”. You can find a copy of our latest SIAMS Report here. It was also judged to be a good school in its SIAMS inspection.
Leeds and Broomfield Church of England Primary School has 80 pupils taught in three classes. It was last inspected by OFSTED in October 2016 and is a "Good"school. Leeds and Broomfield has also made improvements to reach the school's goals and we are now looking to continue the great work that has been achieved.
The school ethos outlines our Christian values of selflessness, generosity, empathy, forgiveness, curiosity and honesty. Our school vision is to provide a warm atmosphere, a rich curriculum and pupils who love to learn and live our Christian values. You can find a copy of our latest SIAMS Report here. It was also judged to be a good school in its SIAMs inspection.
The federation schools work closely together, developing policy and process as a team. Staff meet together, work as subject leader teams and moderate termly. This has been expanded recently to include the staff of the fourth school we are in collaboration with. The federation is looking for a leader who can share in the vision of the federation whilst understanding the importance of maintaining each school's individuality.
