We look forward to meeting you at our ‘Welcome Evening’ for new students on Monday 3 July 2023. All parents, carers and students should arrive at school for a prompt 5.00pm start. Doors will be open from 4.30pm. Could we please ask that children do not attend the evening without parents/carers.

On arrival, please take note of your child’s allocated tutor group. The tutor lists will be displayed on the windows of the restaurant and will include the following information:

  • Name of the Form Tutor

  • Venue for 5.00pm (tutor room, hall, or sports hall)

Your evening will include:

  • Welcome introduction by the Headteacher, Mr S Ward
  • Opportunity to meet wit the Senior Leadership Team and ask questions
  • Opportunity to meet your child’s Form Tutor and Head of Year, Ms L Hill
  • Opportunity to talk to a member of the ‘Additional Needs Team’ and the SENDCO

  • Opportunity to talk to members of staff regarding the Year 7 curriculum
  • Transition Day information
  • Opportunity to view the Kingsway Park uniform and P.E kit

The Form Tutor will issue each child with an Induction Booklet giving more detailed information regarding transition.

Transition Day 9.00am – 2.10pm

Students should arrive at the student services entrance for 9.00am. We ask that students do not arrive too early to allow for the rest of the school to arrive and be in their classrooms. Students should wear their full primary school uniform. They should bring a pen and a water bottle. We will provide a free school lunch for every student, or they can bring their own packed lunch. If your child has any dietary requirements, then please email Ms A Taylor at the school stating their allergies etc. ataylor@kingswaypark.org

Students will leave school at 2.10pm. Kingsway Park High School is very busy at the end of the school day, so if you area collecting your child by car then please park at a safe distance away from the school. There is no parking on the school car park.

Transition forms the start of our significant partnership together. We see the forming of a positive relationship between parents, staff and students as a fundamental building block to the success of your child, during their time at Kingsway Park High School. Only through this collective responsibility and consistency of support, can we hope to achieve a ‘World Class Learning Experience’, for all of our students.

Please make every effort to attend the Welcome Evening and I shall look forward to meeting you and your child on Monday 3 July. In the meantime, if you have any queries or concerns, please feel free to email ataylor@kingswaypark.org

Yours faithfully,

Simon Ward
