Welcome from the new Headteacher

February 27, 2015 in Front Page News, Headteacher's newletters, Headteachers Blog by Mrs T Clarke

As the new Headteacher of Kingsbury School & Sports College I am delighted to welcome you to our website. The website provides you with useful information about our school and will be updated over the coming months. The school is now being led by the Fairfax Multi-Academy in a school to school agreement in conjunction with Birmingham Local Authority. It is an exciting time for the school as it prepares to become a sponsored academy within the Fairfax group of schools.

At Kingsbury School we are committed to high standards of presentation, behaviour and achievement. A calm purposeful environment is the key to successful learning & achievement.

The school has unlimited potential and it is well supported by parents, local primary schools and the community.

Potential parents are welcome to visit the school at any time where they can meet the Headteacher and visit classrooms to see the school in action.

Please contact the Headteachers’s PA if you would like to organise a visit.

Mr Mark Rhatigan

Site Arrangements for After School

May 5, 2015 in Front Page News by Mrs T Clarke

Access to The School and Leisure Centre

Keeping the students and staff safe is, clearly, our main responsibility.  It is important therefore that the site is secure and cannot be accessed by any member of the public other than through reception; therefore, we are making some changes to how access to the school site and leisure centre is organised at the end of the school day.

Students need to exit the site as soon as possible in a calm manner.  Any student on site after 3:10pm needs supervision e.g. in revision sessions or a sporting event where they are supervised.

Students who leave after 3:15pm (e.g. from revision, after school clubs or detention) will be escorted to the front gate by a member of staff.  Therefore, between 3:15pm and 4:30pm, students will be able to move between the main building and the annexe via the cookery door by Mr Halstead’s office, but both the back gates and annexe gate will be locked.

The annexe gate will be opened at 4:30pm.  Any students leaving after this time will need escorting.  Visitors to the Leisure Centre can access the site from that time.

The back gate will be opened at 5:00pm for access to the Leisure Centre.

These arrangements will apply from Wednesday 6th May 2015.
