Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a wonderful break and managed to relax and enjoy the festive period!
We’re all looking forward to welcoming everyone back today at the usual times (0835 for KS2, 0845 for KS1 and 0830 for Nursery) so we can hit the ground running with focused learning and build on the great work that all of us, the academy and our wonderful community, put in during 2018.

It was very sad to see the departure of Ms Sinclair in December who, after many successful years at Kingsley, relocated to Yorkshire to be nearer family and Ms Allison, one of our wonderful family team colleagues, who wanted to be able to base herself nearer her home. We will miss them hugely and wish them all the very best in their new lives.

We have a number of new colleagues starting with us this term. Ms Bondar, who will be working with our Y6 teaching team; Ms Hayward, who will be joining us from the trust as an Assistant Headteacher to support safeguarding and behaviour; Miss Green, who will be our Deputy Safeguarding Lead and Miss Poole, who will join our office team as an apprentice. We welcome them warmly and wish them all the very best during their time at Kingsley!

With very best wishes,

Ian McCrae
