Welcome by Headteacher

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 appointed as the permanent Headteacher following my partnership with the school as Executive Headteacher for the past 18 months.  The Governing Body and I are excited about the school’s onward journey: continued close collaboration with the community and building on the rapid progress made by the school, the children and staff.  

We are an outward-facing school and take pride in our partnership with other schools both locally and further afield as members of the Gloucestershire School’s Partnership, the Somerset Literacy Network, Maths GLOW Hub and others.  The teams at KPS are committed to providing every child, irrespective of their starting points, the very best primary education.  We seek, adapt and implement the best practice and are relentless in our pursuit of excellence for the children and community. We care passionately about every person’s experience of our school and are proud to be members of our school. 

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.
