Welcome to Kingsway Primary School. We are a thriving and growing (4-11) school located close to the city/ county border in Braunstone Town, Leicestershire and part of the LiFE Multi-Academy Trust.
Our school aims to provide nurturing and rich learning experiences that allow every pupil to master new skills, develop passions and reach heights that they did not imagine possible.
Our core values are truthfulness, kindness and equality. At Kingsway these values are central to everything we do.
WE BELIEVE IN:
Before the summer holiday, Kingsway Primary School had an Ofsted inspection. We are delighted to share the Ofsted report with you and to confirm that Kingsway Primary School continues to be a ‘Good’ school. This was a wonderful outcome for Mrs Olsen just before she retired from being Head teacher at the school and reflects the hard work and dedication provided for the children from all of the staff and governors of the school.
The next chapter for Kingsway will be led by Mr Bennett as Executive Head, who is also the Head at The Winstanley School, and myself (Mrs Mckinnon) as I take over the role as Head of School. Together we will be planning and developing the next steps identified in the report as well as working collaboratively across the schools and in the LiFE MAT trust.
This is a fantastic time to be part of the Kingsway Primary School and we look forward to meeting with parents and carers very soon to share our vision and to gather opinions on how we can build on the success of the school.
Some of the things in the report we were most proud to read:
‘Leaders have established a caring learning environment at Kingsway Primary School based on the core values of truthfulness, kindness and equality.’
‘Staff treat pupils with kindness and respect.’
The inspectors comment that ‘[the children] are happy to come to school.’
One pupil said; ‘Everyone is special in their own way. We welcome everyone.’
Thank you once again for your ongoing support of Kingsway Primary school and I look forward to meeting you all soon.
G Mckinnon - Head of School

All of the teaching bases have an interactive display screens.
Over the years the school has grown steadily and now comprises: -
To the rear of the school are extensive playing fields used for curriculum activities and play times in dry weather. There is also a large tarmacadam playground and extensive paved areas adjacent to the school buildings.
We have also developed the area outside of the 4+ block to provide an additional learning space which is equipped with sand pit, under tree sitting area, climbing frame and bridge, willow tunnel, planting beds, display boards and a further covered area.
At the end of the Year 5/6 block there is a paved seating area where the older children are allowed to eat their packed lunches outside when the weather permits. At the far end of the main playground is another space which has been developed as a nature area with beds for planting, a pond, a bottle greenhouse and an outdoor classroom.
