Improving communication with parents and families

Please could you kindly complete the following survey to enable us to better understand how to improve our communication with you.


We are delighted to announce that Kensington Primary School has been officially recognised by OFSTED as an OUTSTANDING school. The inspectors said that, ‘Kensington Primary is an exciting place for pupils to learn. It inspires them to work hard and reach their potential.’

It has been a long journey for the school and we would like to thank everyone for their support, encouragement, and belief. This is the result of an incredible amount of hard work and commitment from everyone involved.

We have got to this point by working in partnership; never accepting ok; being the best we can be every day, and loving what we do. The challenge now is to take that further – and we can.

We know that this puts us in a fantastic position to continue delivering a world-class education for your children. We will do this by further strengthening the partnerships that have helped us reach this point, particularly with Curwen Primary School as this has been identified as a key priority area for further improvement. We have also already begun to improve the outdoor area in Early Years – the other area identified as a step for further improvement.

In these and all other areas we will continue to strive for improvement. Whilst we are incredibly proud of this report, we know that there is more we can do. We got this far by always demanding the best and looking for ways to improve: we will continue to do this. We look forward to working with you in the future and further developing this OUTSTANDING school.

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 exciting 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.

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
