Welcome to Kingsley Primary Academy

At Kingsley, we aim for all children to be happy, independent and motivated with a real love of learning.  For us, academic success and personal, social and emotional development are of equal importance and we work hard to ensure that we develop the whole child.

We believe that home, school and the local community work best in partnership to ensure that all children are able to reach their full potential. 

We provide all our children with an exciting, rich and varied curriculum which meets their needs whilst promoting high standards. We believe in a rounded curriculum and promote a love for the arts, inquisitiveness about the world around them and enjoyment of physical activity alongside the basic skills of communication, literacy and mathematics.  We believe that children should be encouraged to embrace challenges, take risks, be intrigued by mistakes and become lifelong learners. 

We are a community school which represents a rich and diverse local population. We actively promote and encourage links with our local community and beyond to enrich everyone’s learning.  It is very important to us that everyone feels valued and welcome when they come into our school.

The Primary Hearing Centre is also based at Kingsley Primary School.  Deaf children from all over Croydon and some neighbouring boroughs come to the Centre for specialist teaching and support. The Centre is part of the centrally funded Croydon Sensory Support Service.

We hope our website introduces you to our school.  It cannot tell you everything, so we hope that what you see here will inspire you to visit us and see for yourself Kingsley’s wonderful, nurturing learning environment.
