Executive Headteacher Welcome

Schools in England have been instructed to close from the 20th March 2020 until further notice. All children are currently expected to stay at home and we have communicated this with all parents/carers. Care can be provided if required, please contact the school via email if you require this admin@kingsmead.derby.sch.uk or when someone from school contacts you please let us know.


Take care, stay safe

Key Worker Information

In order to comply with the Government’s guidance with regard to shutting schools and providing places for key worker children, it is necessary for us to collect and manage data about these children and their parents/carers in a different way.


Our standard GDPR policy applies, and information found on our privacy notices relating to staff, parents and of course pupils will apply in all cases.


We will use the information that relates to key workers in order to ensure that those children who are entitled to a place at school whilst schools are officially closed are correctly processed, managed and safeguarded.


The Data Controller continues to take its obligations to data processing seriously and will ensure that appropriate safeguards and measures are in place.



Welcome to Kingsmead School, a Special School, KS3/4 PRU and Hospital Medical Provision, I feel privileged to be the Executive Headteacher of these schools as well as Newton’s Walk, which is the KS1/2 PRU. We strive to continue the development of confidence in our school by students, staff and the wider community, we aim to be great today and better tomorrow!

Students are at the heart of everything we are working to achieve and we aim to provide all students with a personalised curriculum that takes into account their individual needs and requirements.

As a community we aspire to developing young people who leave either Kingsmead or Newton’s Walk with a level of RESPECT that empowers them to be successful through their journey in life.
