Q. How accessible is the setting environment?


A. King's Gate Primary School is purposely designed for ease of access for all children with disabilities. Rooms are split between 2 floors, with an accessible lift to enable access to both.  There is an accessible toilet and dedicated hygiene room.


Q. My child needs a special diet can this be catered for?


A. Vegetarian options are always available and if notice is provided alternatives can be arranged in consultation with the school kitchen. Please call in to discuss this with our school office staff.


Q. How will my child be included in activities outside of the classroom including school trips?


A. All children take part in school trips and are supported by our staff. We would like all children to access after-school activities and this is often done on a first come first served basis when numbers are an issue. However if your child needs adult support you will need to discuss this with the Head to see if this is viable.


Q. What out-of-school opportunities are there?


A. Our website offers information about sporting events and curriculum enrichment activities.


Q. How will you support my child’s social development?


A. At King's Gate Primary School we have Mrs Weyman who is  ELSA (Emotional Literacy Support Assistant) trained. She offers 1:1 nurturing sessions and structured social skills small groups. The School Council are currently working on a project where children can contact a member of staff if they have issues or concerns. They are developing a “Worry Box” system where children can leave their name in the box and a member of staff will arrange to meet with them to discuss their concerns.


Q. What cultural backgrounds does our school offer?


A. Our community includes a range of cultural backgrounds and we have experience of children from different faiths and with children with EAL (English as an Additional Language.)
