Welcome from Mr Pritchard

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Kennington Primary School and thank you so much for entrusting us with your child’s education for the next seven years. We hope we can help them to be positive, resilient, polite, independent, hardworking and respectful, all the qualities we value in our children. For some of you, it will be a new experience, sending your child off to school for the first time and we hope our online induction helps with any questions you might have. If you still need to talk to us about anything to do with starting school, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We aim to make the next seven years an exciting journey for your child and we hope you join us on that journey too!

'School readiness'

It is really important that you work towards getting your child 'school ready' before they start in September. 

We will soon be sending home a new starter pack for your child, with activities to complete over the Summer before they start school.

Please follow the links below for some useful websites.  We have also attached some information below with ideas of activities to do at home.
