Thank you for choosing our school. We are really proud to be part of the Kingsfield community and we hope that you are too. During the feedback from Ofsted (2021), the lead inspector told both the senior leadership team and members of the Trust that when asked, our children said the best thing about school is the teachers. We aim to always work together to ensure children have access to the best possible education.

Universal Free School Meals
Every child from Reception through to the end of Year 2 is entitled to a 'universal infant free school meal'. This means that they can have a hot dinner daily for free and is not reliant on parental income. It is not mandatory but we really do encourage you to take up the offer.
The Government awards each school an additional amount of funding based on the level of children receiving free school meals (FSM). These differ to the ones above and are linked to a child's individual circumstances. Please read the following posters from Cambridgeshire Local Authority (LA) for more information. Should you think that your child is eligible for FSM, please contact the school office who will be happy to help with your application. On most occasions, FSM can be done automatically without the need for an application.

During the Summer Holidays, we would like to ask parents to support their children in completing a scrap book. This will be explained in more detail at the Open Evening and Open Afternoon on Tuesday 14th June 2022.
This is the online learning journal that we use to show children's progress throughout the year. It is also something that parents can add to. Due to the nature of the content, we only allow access to parents of the cohort and upon receipt of the permissions form listed above.
