Welcome to Kingshill Church School – a message from Mrs Thomson
I hope that everyone is keeping safe at this difficult time, our thoughts and prayers are with all our families and our staff. I’ll be sending a newsletter each week to keep you updated so keep a look out for that!
For any new families due to start in September 2020…
We welcome you to our school family and we are just so sorry that, at the present time, we can’t invite you to all the usual transition meetings and events we had planned for the summer term. I will be contacting you personally as soon as we have your details, then we will send you any official paperwork that you need, so that the start of the new school year can be organised as smoothly as we can make it for your children.
In the meantime, have a look at the website and see what we do…..
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our school website. At Kingshill we pride ourselves on being caring, friendly, warm and welcoming. I hope you find the website useful and invite you to visit at any time to see us in action!
Kingshill Church School is a small primary school (ages4-11) on a large site on the northern edge of Nailsea and we belong to the Bath and Wells Multi Academy Trust. We enjoy very close links with our partner church, Christ Church in Nailsea, which makes an active contribution to the work of the school. The school is strengthened by the commitment of our active parent body -Kingshill Friends’ Association -who support the school by raising funds and holding events for our pupils and their families.
We believe in learning without limits. In our school we enjoy and celebrate inspiring, inclusive and life-long learning. We are an open, encouraging community sharing Christian values especially love and respect.We value friendship built on honesty, trust and acceptance in a caring environment.
We uphold the fundamental values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs.
‘The leadership team has maintained the good quality of education in the school since the last inspection.’ ‘The school has high aspirations for pupils and staff and believe that everyone has the chance to succeed.’ ‘Adults develop very positive relationships with pupils. They set consistently high expectations and supervise pupils well at all times.’ ‘Pupils enjoy school and are extremely welcoming and polite. They are keen to chat and are clearly very proud of their school.’ ‘Pupils find lessons interesting and challenging.

Our school life is underpinned by the Christian Values of Wisdom, Respect, Compassion, Hope, Peace, Justice, Friendship, Responsibility, Service, Forgiveness, Trust, Thankfulness, Courage, Perseverance and Creation. Each year we focus on 6 Values. This year our values are: Respect, Compassion, Responsibility, Courage, Perseverance and Hope.
We believe that happy, reflective learners are effective learners and that we can achieve this by creating a stimulating learning environment and encouraging inquiring and enthusiastic learners.Our children are encouraged to embrace our ever-changing world with confidence, courage and creativity. They are encouraged to respect and care for themselves and others and are encouraged to challenge themselves academically, physically and spiritually and to have a sense of their belonging to our local community and to global communities.
Our school has been described as caring, welcoming and friendly. We pride ourselves on building effective working relationships with our children, our parents and our community. Visitors are impressed with the calm and purposeful atmosphere around the school, the politeness of our children and the helpfulness of our staff.
