Welcome to Kingsway Primary School.
We are all immensely proud of our wonderful school. Established just over a decade ago, KPS has grown to become a large primary catering for 420 children from Reception to Year 6, with an attached 60 place nursery.
We know that children need to feel safe, happy and secure in their learning: this element is central to our philosophy and fundamental to the relationships we develop. Children and families are at the centre of everything we do: our pastoral and teaching teams develop trusted and supportive connections with parents to ensure the best starting point for the children to realise high levels of achievement in their lives.
The integrity of the school team was recognised by Ofsted, who rated the school as ‘Good’ in all areas following their visit in February 2022.
I am delighted to be the Headteacher of Kingsway Primary School. Since joining in a substantive role in September 2020, the Governing Body and I have been able to build a team of highly effective, expert teachers and staff across the entire school. At the heart of our work is the determination to make a difference to the lives of every child and to prepare them for an exciting future. We are passionate about being exceptional: every child deserves the best we can offer in every aspect of our work.
We are an outward-facing school and take pride in our partnership with other schools locally and further afield as members of the Gloucestershire Schools’ Partnership; Mangotsfield Hub; the Somerset Literacy Network; Maths GLOW Hub and others. We seek, adapt and implement the best practice and are relentless in our pursuit of excellence for the children and community.
Kindness, Perseverance and Success capture our core belief that children will feel happy and safe through kind and caring relationships with others; they will learn to persevere to overcome challenges through determination and resilience; they will succeed: academically, physically, creatively and socially.
Our vision is that Kingsway Primary School will provide an exceptional educational experience for every child.
Visitors to the school often comment on the excellent behaviour of the children, their strong attitudes to learning and the welcoming atmosphere. We hope our website is able to give you an insight into our school, but to get a true sense of Kingsway Primary School, we would love for you to visit in person by contacting the school office.
