Dear Parents – Firstly we would like to say a big thanks to all the parents who have collected weekly work packs for their children from the front office. If you haven’t got yours yet they are all available with your child’s name on, just pop in and we will give them to you.
If you are entitled to free school meals we also have packed lunches available for collection this week and we will let you know if arrangements change for this in the forthcoming weeks.
You may have noticed the clip-art I have used for the top of this letter, don’t worry senility has not yet set in….. this is the logo for our new school Class Dojo. All class teachers will be using Class Dojo to award merit points for their children during the school day or when they are working from home on their work packs.
Thanks to all those parents who have responded to our calls this week and have provided their e-mail addresses. Now that we have your e-mail addresses we will be sending you log-ins so that you can access the Class Dojo. This will not only provide you with an update of how your child is getting on, it will also allow you to message your child’s class teacher directly. All class teachers will open their messages on weekday mornings prior to the start of school and will reply to any queries/ provide updates or just generally keep in touch.
Sadly I have told staff only to open their messages at the start of each weekday. If you message when something pops into your mind in the wee small hours or at weekends you will have to wait until the next school day before this will be received and responded to.
We hope the introduction of Class Dojo across the school will also be the first step in providing better school communications and greater access to on-line learning during any current and future lockdowns.
Thanks for your support again ….. especially with the task of ensuring your child keeps up to date with their learning at home.
Kingsway staff team.
Our new Acting Headteacher is Mrs Coleen Hibbard
Welcome to our school website. I am proud to share with you the wonderful opportunities and developments at Kingsway Primary School.
Kingsway Primary is a vibrant school where children are enthusiatic and motivated to achieve endless possibilites. Children are at the heart of every decision we make to ensure they are safe, happy, independant and confident. We ensure opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs, both now and in the future.
Through our broad and engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity of the world around them, which will develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that all children receive a well rounded curriculum, where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.
Our school has a talented and dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our successful relationships with our families and local community. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school. We regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.
I hope this website gives you valuable information about our school and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum.
