a very warm welcome to your new Kingsmead family

Welcome to the new children, parents and carers joining us in September,

We are really looking forward to meeting you all and welcoming you properly to our Kingsmead family. We would all wish for a more routine and predictable starting school but here we are, in the middle of a pandemic. Karen Cotton and the EYFS team are thinking hard and planning a really good induction for your children and you as parents within the current constraints. More information will be online and coming thick and fast in the coming weeks.

Many of you will be new to our Kingsmead community. Please do rummage around the website; we try hard to keep it interesting and updated and there is rarely a day when something or other is not added or amended. We signpost the most important from the homepage so don't be daunted by all the pages, a regular check in is relatively easy.

All your children will be entitled to universal free school meals from September which we hope they will enjoy. Some of you will also be entitled to free school meals because of low income; while this may seem unimportant with everyone getting a lunch, this would entitle you to a uniform grant which will buy a sweatshirt, polo shirt, school PE kit and book bag. It also brings in funding called the Pupil Premium which is extremely important for us in school to give your child the best start and future education. You have to apply at Cheshire West and Chester 0300 1237021 and once you are on the system we can order a uniform for you.
