Thank you to the all the families who came along to school on the 12th of February for the ‘Meet the teacher evening”.


PE day will be every Thursday this term so please send the children along in PE clothing. In the next few weeks I will be looking at the uniform and hope to have a few options around cost and practicality.

There are a limited number of sports shirts in sizes 6 & 8 available at school.  We will be ordering more and will advise once they are available. In the meantime, students should wear a top of similar colour (blue) and blue or black shorts or tights. Running shoes are essential.


New students

I would like to formally welcome a new student to Kingsview School:

Keiya – to the Junior Room.


Latest happenings

As many of you are aware the latest fun activity is sliding on the bank with pieces of cardboard. This is being supervised and monitored closely but as of now is a lot of genuinely good kid fun.


KingsView Uniforms Available

School currently has a large amount of uniform items that have kindly been donated by families who no longer require them.

We have: Winter and Summer shirts, pinafores, boys’ shorts,and jerseys.

We would prefer that the school community get to use these items rather than having it sitting on our shelves.  If you need any uniform items, these will be available on Friday 22nd February in the School Hall from 8.30am.   If you need anything prior to that, please contact Lucy on 027 264 4567 and she can let you know what we have.  

If you have any uniform you would like to donate to school, please drop this at school and it can be added to the supply.

No payment is required for this uniform; however a donation would be much appreciated.
