We are a happy, safe and friendly school with lots going on and this website should give you  information about the things that we do here!

At our school we have 3 core beliefs:

  • Our children will have the motivation, self belief and enthusiasm to achieve their own goals
  • Our children will feel safe within the school environment and will learn how to keep themselves and each other safe.
  • Our children will leave Kingsway as polite, caring, confident and ambitious young people.

Our committed and enthusiastic staff deliver a varied and creative curriculum across the year groups and they also provide many extra curricular activities.  


Kingsway Primary School was built in 1974 and admitted its first pupils in January 1975. It is an attractive open plan building set in pleasant surroundings with a large playing field and two playgrounds.

The school is situated to the West of the city adjacent to Winstanley High School and with easy access to motorways and the Fosse Park Shopping Complex. Most children from Kingsway transfer to Winstanley Community College at eleven and from there to Bosworth Community College at Desford. The three feeder Primary Schools and the High School form a close collaborative group.

The number of children on roll is 320.

In addition to the fully carpeted class bases there are a number of quiet rooms and art areas. There is also a studio which holds one of the school libraries and a hall. There is a double mobile classroom which houses the self-contained 4+ Reception Unit. We also have a computer suite housing 15 computers and a projector and, to give even more ICT facilities, 3 computer trolleys which house 40+ laptop computers. All of the teaching bases have an interactive white board.

Over the years the school has grown steadily and now comprises:

-A main teaching block composed of:

6 open plan teaching areas

2 Libraries

Large hall

Computer Suite Studio

Quiet room

Art & Craft areas

Teacher's workroom

Boys & Girls toilets


Administration area

A Year 3/4 block with three classrooms, deputy head's office and storage rooms 

Three new classroom for Years 5/6

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.   

Living and Working in Leicestershire

In the Heart of England - Residents of Leicestershire enjoy the best of everything
From refreshing and beautiful countryside and personable market towns to vibrant city living, Leicestershire offers a distinctive and high quality of life that will suit all lifestyles
Leicestershire is a beautiful county at the heart of England, within the developing National Forest.  It is a county where you can discover completely unspoilt villages and market towns, open countryside and panoramic views with rocky summits and secluded valleys.
Leicestershire has a wide variety of attractions including Bosworth Battlefield, where the course of English history changed dramatically, Snibston Discovery Park, which recalls our industrial past, and the National Space Centre.
Loughborough, in the north of the County is at the forefront of Information Technology and Loughborough University is also the national headquarters for many sports in the UK.  A number of Olympic teams will be training at Loughborough University in preparation for the 2012 Games in London, including, among others, the British Swimming Team, the British Triathlon Team, the elite British Athletes and the English Women’s Football Team.
The jet engine was invented in Lutterworth, in the south of the County, while Hinckley in the west was where the hosiery and footwear industries evolved.  Ashby-de-la-Zouch, in the north-west, and Market Harborough, in the south-east, are two very attractive, historical market towns.  Melton Mowbray, in the north-east, is a rural market town famous for the pork pie and for Stilton cheese.
Cosmopolitan and cultured, historic but futuristic, Leicester in the centre of the County is nothing if not varied, with its strong cultural diversity, excellent entertainment, night-life and restaurants.  The newly re-developed centre of the City offers a wide range of shopping opportunities, from the largest permanent outdoor market in Europe to the extensive Highcross shopping centre.
Leicestershire is well served by many transportation networks.  Four motorways (M1, M69, M42 and M6) run through the County, and there are regular trains to London, Nottingham, Birmingham and the North.  For international travel East Midlands Airport is located in the north of the County, and Birmingham Airport is also easily accessible
