Welcome to Kingswood Primary School. We understand that choosing a school for your child is a difficult decision to make so we hope we can be of some assistance.
Please familiarise yourselves with our website to get a feel of the school, its pupils, staff and activities. Note down any thoughts and questions you may have. We would love to give you a guided tour of the school – please telephone the office for an appointment (01453 842197). During the tour you will have the opportunity to visit each class to see the children in action. The Head teacher and class teachers should be able to answer any queries you may have. If you would like to bring your child with you, they would be most welcome – after all, they are the VIPs!
Information regarding the Applications procedure with Gloucestershire County Council can be found on their website, click here. In line with the Local Authority policy children with a brother or sister in the school will be given precedence followed by those who live in the parish of Kingswood. Our Published Admission Number is 17 pupils. If you are considering our school for a place for your child, please contact the Head teacher.
GCC will inform you of the outcome of your application in April.
The new starters will be invited to attend a morning session at school on ‘Moving On’ day in the summer term. This is also when the current school children try out their new class and the year six pupils visit their chosen secondary school. The new reception pupils greatly enjoy their taste of school life and we are eager to meet them.
A Parents’ Evening will be held which is hosted by the Head teacher, Reception teacher and teaching assistants. We will give you as much information as we can to make the transition to primary school an easy and enjoyable one.
Reception children begin school in September doing part-time hours for a few weeks to settle them in gradually.
School hours are from 8.45 am – 12 noon and 1.00 – 3.00 pm; a total of 23.5 teaching hours. Children and their parents/carer are welcome at the school from 8.35 am.
Kingswood Primary School is a very caring, enjoyable place to be. We hope your child will be very happy with us.
