Nursery/Reception Admissions

New Nursery and Reception September 2022

We are delighted that you and your child are joining Kingsway Primary School for the academic year 2022-2023.  It gives us great pleasure to welcome you and your family to our school community.

We hope that the information on this page will answer some of the questions that you have about your child starting school with us and assure you that we will be in touch with you in the coming weeks with further details about your child's induction. Please keep an eye on this webpage, as it will be regularly updated, with useful information.




We will be contacting all new families to invite you to a Welcome meeting on Wednesday 15th June where you will have a chance to meet your child’s teachers and have a look around school.





We will be talking to pre-school and nursery settings, as we always do, to find out where your child is in their learning. We will also be talking to you directly to find out about your child's preferences; things they particularly enjoy, find difficult etc. These conversations usually take place within the context of stay and play visits to school in the summer term or, for nursery, a home visit in early September.  We will be in touch soon to find out how you would prefer to communicate with us.


Below are some key links which you will find helpful in preparation for your child starting with us:



Early Years Foundation Stage

In Nursery and Reception our curriculum follows the guidance set out in the Early Years Foundation Stage Framework.  We are exceptionally proud of our Hygge inspired curriculum that ensures all of our children get the best possible start to their education and leave Reception as confident, resilient and inspired learners.  More details of our approach can be found on our policy page.
