caring for ourselves, other people and our environment
The real voyage of discovery lies not in seeing new landscapes but in having new eyes.
newsletters and school info
Due to the expansion of our school we have places for children in Year 1 to 4 for September 2016.
A very warm welcome to Kingsmead Primary School. We aim for all the children learning with us to enjoy their education and to make their time in school interesting, exciting, challenging... and sometimes even awe-inspiring! Our school motto is 'caring for ourselves, other people and our environment.' This drives the work of our whole school community: the children who learn here, the teaching and support staff and our fantastic volunteers including the school's governing body, the Kingsmead Friends Association and students in school.
As a state funded community primary school we welcome pupils from the full diversity of families and backgrounds in modern Britain. We seek to support our pupils in becoming global citizens we can be proud of: people who will make a positive contribution to their family, community and planet.
As an Eco-school we aim to reduce our impact on the environment wherever possible. Wild areas in the extensive grounds provide habitats for wildlife and a great environment for children. Rainwater is recycled for flushing toilets and solar panels provide warm water and electricity. Every family family is encouraged to start their day with a healthy walk, cycle or scoot to school, giving children much needed exercise and reducing pollution and congestion around school. In order to reduce paper and printing consumption, we use this website (the public area of our virtual learning environment) as our main vehicle for communicating with our community. We hope you find it informative and interesting.
We shall not cease from exploration
And at the end of all our exploring
Will be able to arrive where we first started
And know the place for the first time.
