About Our School 

A  Message From Our Head Teacher

Welcome to Kingsway Infant School and thank you for your interest. I am proud to be the Headteacher of a caring and nurturing school where learning is fun.

We are committed to providing the best possible education for our children and believe that all children should have the opportunity to achieve their greatest through a broad and balanced curriculum.  Our committed and caring staff team work hard to make sure that every lesson is creative, challenging and meets the needs of the children effectively.  By personalising the curriculum for our children, we help to give them the best start to their education and prepare them for their future.  We also believe in working closely with parents to support their child’s learning journey and welcome feedback and questions.

 

As well as making learning fun and engaging, we provide opportunities for pupils to have leadership responsibilities (such as play buddies, class jobs and school council), perform on the stage in our class assemblies and shows and feed our school rabbits.   Consequently, this helps to develop the child’s confidence, independence and build respectful relationships.

We hope the information contained on our website will help you to understand more about our school and what we can offer. If you would like to know more, you are welcome to visit us for a tour of the school by contacting the school office to make an appointment.

Headteacher

Motivation

We feel that motivating your child is very important. We award stickers for a range of successes including; good behaviour, good learning, kindness, manners etc. These are collected in your child’s ‘Smartcard’ and collated each week. This is then linked to our pyramid display in the hall. This is a focal point in assembly each week. All pupils have their names on the board. As they attain 10, 50, 100, 150, 200, 250 stickers they are called out in assembly to move their name up the board and their success is celebrated by all. They also win a certificate of merit which they bring home in order to share their success with you.

There are also prizes awarded at the end of each half term for progress, manners, achievement in Maths, Literacy, Science, PE, Music etc. These are celebrated both in assembly and in our newsletter for all to see.


We prize good behaviour, manners and respect. We have a very strong behaviour policy. We celebrate good behaviour each week in ‘Golden time.’ This happens throughout the school for twenty minutes on a Friday afternoon. Your child will get to choose from a selection of fun activities which may be in different classes with different teachers.

Responsibilities 

Two members of each class are voted onto the School Council every year. They work with the Senior Management Team to resolve issues and move the school forward. Eco Champions from each class ensure no electricity or water is wasted and as much as possible is recycled. Monitor responsibilities are also awarded for:  taking the register, helping at snacktime and being a playground buddy etc. We believe that this gives your child opportunities to develop skills for team work and leadership.

We look forward to welcoming you and your child to our school and working in partnership with you to ensure that all children are happy, safe, make good progress and leave us with a love of learning, respect for themselves, others and the environment.

Learning Styles 

It is recognised that all of us have different learning styles: auditory, visual and kinaesthetic. So your child may learn best when he/she can be an excellent listener, or when he/she can see something drawn out, or when he/she can use their body to move around and be more 'hands on'. All children use a combination of all three but with different emphasis. We aim therefore to cater for all three learning styles during every lesson so that we can engage all of our learners.  We also share learning intentions with our children at the start of a lesson together with success criteria and return to them at the end of the lesson so that we can engage them in self-assessment.
