Welcome to Kingsland Primary School
Kingsland School is an Outstanding (Ofsted March 2018) Local Authority primary day special school providing education for 2 – 11 year old pupils with severe or profound learning disabilities. The school is based on two sites in West Yorkshire, one being in the Stanley area of Wakefield and the other being in Castleford. Pupils travel from across the Wakefield District to attend Kingsland. The position of the school sites allow easy access to the M1/M62 motorway networks, with the Stanley site being within close proximity to the local hospital and the city centre.
Kingsland is a busy but friendly school, with lots going on and a wealth of opportunity for pupils to achieve and succeed. We aim to provide a safe and supportive environment which is both educationally stimulating and appropriately challenging in order to enable all pupils to excel in their personal development and learning. Our team are committed to working in partnership with families, other professionals and stakeholders to ensure that the highest standards of care and provision are in place for each child.
Outdoor learning is a feature of the curriculum at Kingsland. Both school sites are fortunate to have extensive grounds, which have been developed over the years. Play/leisure areas have been planned according to the needs of the pupils and to enable them to develop both physically, socially and cognitively. In addition pupils benefit from a programme of Forest School learning both on and off-site.
The school works closely with health professionals to deliver physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, occupational/sensory integration therapy and music therapy. There are two full time nurses on the Stanley site and various medical professionals hold clinics at the school. In addition, the school has the support of teachers for the hearing and visually impaired, and for pupils with MSI needs, who visit pupils on a regular basis.
We are keen to have parental involvement at all levels. By working together, our pupils benefit enormously in terms of increased confidence, security and sense of purpose. If you have time to spare to come into school and work with us, you will be made very welcome.
We are fortunate to be led by an enthusiastic and outstanding Governing Body that is highly involved, knowledgeable and supportive of the school.
