Kingston Park Primary School

 

Kingston Park Primary School is a large foundation primary school for boys and girls aged 3-11 years. It is located at Cranleigh Avenue in Kingston Park, four miles north west of Newcastle upon Tyne and close to Kingston Park Rugby Ground, home to the Newcastle Falcons. It serves a large catchment area which includes Kingston Park, Kenton Bank Foot, Tudor Grange and Ouseburn Park.

The school, which won an architectural prize for its design, is housed in a large open plan building with a central corridor leading to teaching areas. It is set in extensive, attractive grounds which include a wildlife area, nature trail and an adventure trail. There is a library and an ICT suite in the centre of the school.

The school operates a daily breakfast club as well as a wide range of extracurricular activities. The school is resourced to offer ten additional places for children with physical and mental difficulties. These pupils are all included into mainstream classes. There is a higher than average number of children whose first language is not English. This reflects the number of pupils from Saudi Arabia whose parent study or work in Newcastle and live within the catchment area. The school also has a number of additional awards including Arts Mark, Sport England Active Mark Gold Award, Primary Science Quality Mark, Investors in Children Award and Healthy Schools status.

Our school motto is 'Together We're Better' which we incorporate in all that we do by encouraging positive relationships with children, parents, staff, governors and the local community. We see the school as both a centre of education during the school day and a centre for the community during and after the school day. We are a friendly school with a nurturing and inclusive environment.

At Kingston Primary we place each child at the centre of all that we do. We continually look for ways to motivate and challenge pupils to achieve their best. We place great emphasis on manners and behaviour. Positive attitudes and self-discipline are encouraged and rewarded.

We believe by working together with parents and the community we are better able develop each child's potential and nurture the vital understanding between home and school.
