Welcome to Kingsway Primary School.
Dear Parents and Carers
We are quickly approaching the end of the academic year – it really has flown by despite the unusual circumstances! As a celebration of everything Year 6 have achieved during their time with us, we like to make you aware of some upcoming dates, events and information.
From Monday 29th June, we would like to collect some farewell messages from as many children as possible in order to create a special ‘leavers video’. We would like to montage these messages with some memorable pictures so that all our Y6 children can see it. We will contact you separately about this via Class Dojo but please ask your children to think of a memory or message that they would like to have published.
Friday 10th July – We would like to invite all our Y6 children to attend a socially distanced picnic on the school field. We would like the children to bring their own food to this but hope this will be a fantastic opportunity for them to see all of their classmates before the end of the year.
We have ordered yearbooks for all children and these will be gifted to the children if in attendance at school. For those who are unable to attend, we will post these to you and hope they will be a nice memento of their experiences at Kingsway Primary.
In September, it is our intention to assign a day for a year group ‘reunion’. We hope that by then, it will be an opportunity for the children to sign shirts and write yearbook messages which normally would have taken place during this term but due to the current circumstances, has not been possible.
We would like to thank you again for all your support and wish you and your amazing children all the best for the future. We really will miss them!
Miss Holloway and Mr Cox
We are all immensely proud of our wonderful school. Established just over a decade ago, the school has grown to become a large primary catering for 420 children from Reception to Year 6, with an attached 60 place nursery and children’s centre. 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.
Our vision and values ensure an exceptional educational experience that meets needs of our school and wider 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.
I am delighted to have been working with the school since April 2019 in my role as Executive Headteacher. Staff and governors are passionately committed to developing the knowledge that children need to succeed in life and to providing enjoyable, valuable experiences through a carefully designed curriculum that meets the needs of all our children. Through our connection with other excellent schools across both Gloucester and Cheltenham, we are delighted with the progress the school has made since the last inspection in March 2018 and look forward to a visit from Ofsted in the coming months.
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.
Lee Pajak, Executive Headteacher
