The School 


At Kempsford Primary School they enable all children to be happy whilst reaching their full potential and developing a sense of self-worth within their Christian ethos. 

High expectations and Christian values help children to Respect, Improve, Succeed and Excel, forming the foundation for the child’s education, values, skills and attitudes and giving them confidence for their future. This helps them to develop and respond positively to all opportunities and challenges. 

They are delighted that 100% of the parents surveyed via Ofsted’s Parent View would recommend Kempsford Primary school to another parent (6th March 2017).

The school is extremely well supported by Governors, an active ‘Friends‘ association, parents, the Church and the wider community.

Kempsford Primary School is part of a cluster of local Primary Schools, and have strong ties with Farmor’s School, the local 11-18 Comprehensive in Fairford.

Who's coming? 


I first found my love for athletics when I took part in Wolverhampton Regional Schools cross country Championships in Year 6, where I won and then got scouted to join my local club which was Wolverhampton & Bilston AC at the time. Throughout my first few years of taking part in this sport I enjoyed doing cross country and 800m. A few years later into the sport, I got approached by a coach from Birchfield Harriers where he thought I had talent, so I went down to the club for some training sessions and I eventually ended up moving clubs... 

Who are we?


Sports For Champions UK (CIC) in partnership with Kempsford CofE Primary School and the local community are running a fundraiser to help support the mental and physical health of the pupils after the national lockdowns. 

Great news! Sports For Champions UK (CIC) will soon visit your school! Youth are invited to join a sponsored fitness circuit led by a Professional athlete, who will educate, enable, and empower participants with a view to inspire them as champions of tomorrow.

While we’re not all athletically inclined we strongly encourage participation, because all youth have talent and require inspiration to pursue their dreams - whatever they may be! After 10 years of success, we can promise a highly memorable event!

SFC events are held in support of schools, which keep 60% of the funds raised to spend on resources that will enrich young peoples’ education/experience. Professional athletes in need of support are the only other beneficiaries from the remaining 40%. SFC is a government audited organization that is voluntarily registered with the Fundraising Regulator. You can support the initiative with assurance. 

During the assembly, SFC athletes show medals and tell their story, hard work, lessons, and insights shared to capture the imagination of all and inspire healthier active lifestyles. Athletes discuss challenges on the road to success, with resilience, nutrition, diet, and dedication forming key topics. Fitness is essential for every young person’s general wellbeing in physical and mental health. It is also proven to be a strong booster of learning potential or brain power. By inspiring children as champions of tomorrow, SFC envision youth growing in all walks of life as healthy, [pro] active community-minded talents.

Alongside Team SFC, athletes invest in local communities to avail of support with training-related costs (e.g. physio/travel). Most world-class athletes train a rigorous 35hr week and struggle to find reliable work that fits their schedule. This is how the funds we raise enable athletes and your school/club to realise their potential. Many pro athletes are unsponsored, lose support, or cannot find it.

Sports For Champions CIC offers schools the benefit of an added investment on resources/facilities, whilst helping athletes with the funds required to sustain their journey with a contribution towards training and competition fees, medical costs, equipment, and more.  

Kempsford CofE Primary School is receiving an inspirational visit from renowned Professional athlete Amy Hillyard on the 19th of May and we need your support!

The pupils will benefit from Physical activity, an inspirational talk including medal display and a Q&A session.

Why is this important?

Kempsford CofE Primary School need to recover and rebuild after the national lockdowns and with the help of a visit from Amy Hillyard, the pupils and teachers will be given the tools to respond to issues like a pandemic, begin to focus on friendships and social engagement all while improving their physical and mental well being.

Kempsford CofE Primary School will benefit from the money raised to invest in key front-line services and equipment.

How can you help?

We're asking all parents to help make it a memorable event for the pupils with the help of Amy Hillyard and to raise funds for key resources for Kempsford CofE Primary School.

If you are a local business or a friend of the school and would like to contribute to help us get to our target then please do make a donation and share our project as far as you can.
