Executive Headteacher Welcome

School is beginning to open to pupils on phased basis as per the government guidance, school attendance is by invitation and prior arrangement only. To arrange for your child to come back to school please contact your key worker who has been contacting you through the Covid-19 closure.


Following the Government directive we aim to open our schools on the 8th June to some pupils. Parents and carers will be contacted to discuss the arrangements for this.  It is essential you are clear on the provision you may require; however our school will phase the return to full capacity  over a number of weeks.
Attached is a letter to ensure that returning to school will be part of the ‘new normal’

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.
