Kingsmead Primary School

Our School Vision is that 'All children will become global citizens who make a positive contribution by caring for themselves, other people and the environment'.


A very warm welcome to Kingsmead Primary School.  A place where we have been 'caring for ourselves, other people and the environment' since 2004. 

This is my first year as Headteacher but I have been part of the school's journey since it was built in 2004. I feel very privileged and proud to be part of such a wonderful school and am looking forward to working with all of the children, staff and families to continue to grow the school from strength to strength. As a school we aim to work together in partnership with parents, carers and the local community, to provide our children with the best possible life chances, and to be rightly proud of themselves and their efforts as special, unique individuals.

If you have any general questions which are not answered on our website, please do not hesitate to contact us; we will happily answer any queries you may have and would be delighted to offer you a tour of our school.
