Starting School September 2019

Welcome to Kingsway Primary School.  Starting school is a very important time for you, your child and the school.  We are looking forward to working       closely with you to ensure your child has a smooth and enjoyable transition into school life.  The transition process is designed to support both parents/carers and children to have plenty of opportunities to get to know the EYFS staff, experience their new learning environment, to gather all the information you require and answer any questions you may have in preparation for starting school in September 2019.

Stay and Play sessions for children starting school in September 2019


Your child may feel more tired than usual when they first start school and they can also feel a bit more emotional than normal. In order to help your child adjust to the new school environment (and for many a longer day), for the first week of school we gradually lengthen the time they spend with us here in school. From Monday 9th September, children will be expected to be at school for the full-day ie 8.50 am to 3.15 pm. The times your child will be at school for the first week are given below:
