Latest News - Kensington in the top 325 schools in England! - Please read below

Welcome to Kensington  Primary School

Kensington Primary School is based in Manor Park within the London Borough of Newham.  We provide education for children from the ages of 3 to 11. We are very proud of our improving school and the achievements it has and is making to inspire our children for brighter futures. We believe that this is because we work in partnership with our pupils, families, staff, governors, local and wider communities.

Your child’s time at Kensington Primary School is very precious and we are pleased that we are able to share this with you. 

We provide a curriculum that acknowledges the importance of the basic skills, but endeavours to teach those basic skills in an exciting way, as well as finding time to focus on more creative and artistic skills, and making sure we enjoy what we learn.

Over the last two years there has been a lot of building work but this is coming to an end in the Autumn term of 2015 and we hope to have a much improved environment internally and externally for our growing number of pupils.

I hope you find our website useful and informative. If you have any suggestions, or concerns, then you can contact us through our email address for parents; parents@kensington.newham.sch.uk

Please don’t hesitate to make direct contact with the school if there’s anything you need to ask.  Our office staff will give you a warm welcome, and offer a wealth of information.

Yours sincerely

Paul Harris - Executive Head Teacher

Ben Levinson - Head of School


Kensington in the top 325 schools in England!

I am delighted to announce that the most recent school results have now been released. These further demonstrate the incredible improvements made at Kensington in the last two years.

We are now:

- In the top 325 schools out of over 21,000 in the country

- The top 125 out of over 2,500 London schools

- In the top 10 for Newham for the progress children make during their time at the school


For writing, which was our whole school focus last year, we are:

- 58th in the country

- 25th in London

- 2nd in Newham


To put this in context, two years ago the school was

- 11,000th in the country

- 1,470th in London

- 59th out of 62 in Newham


The full results can be viewed at: http://www.education.gov.uk/schools/performance/index.html

This is testament to all of the hard work the whole school community has made to turn the school around.

I would like to thank all of you for your support in making Kensington the school it deserves to be for this community and in continuing to support us as we pursue our vision for the school to be in the top 1% of schools in the country for the progress children make.

Our progress has also been publicised in the Newham Recorder along with the excellent progress of Curwen Primary School led by our Executive Head Teacher, Mr Paul Harris.
