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:
Having high expectations and providing the support for pupils to achieve them. We believe that all children, however challenging their circumstances may be and whatever their background, can achieve.
We believe in a strong partnership with families and we encourage open and honest communication at all times. We welcome visitors to our school and will go the extra mile to ensure any problems are dealt with fairly and openly.
Great teaching and great learning are at the heart of all that the school does. As a group of staff we constantly monitor and challenge ourselves to find the best way of learning for each pupil. We work as a team of talented and committed individuals and we continually inspire and learn from each other just as we expect our pupils to do.
At Kingsway we encourage excellent behaviour, self-belief, resilience and kindness. We encourage politeness at all times.
We are proud to say that we provide all pupils with a nurturing and safe environment and we recognise that meeting the emotional and physical needs of each pupil is of paramount importance. We aspire to develop confident and kind young people who are ready to embrace the challenges of the next stage in their learning.
We are very proud of our school and all our pupils. They are a wonderful asset to the local community and supporting them to grow into marvellous young people is both a pleasure and a privilege.

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.
