Headteacher's Welcome

Dear parents, carers and friends of Kingsbury Academy.

I am delighted to extend a warm welcome to our extraordinary learning and reflective community. As the headteacher, I am honoured to lead a dedicated team of professionals who are committed to providing an exceptional education and care for pupils with diverse learning needs.

We believe in the inherent potential of every child, and our ambition is to empower each pupil to thrive academically, socially, emotionally, in order to lead happy and fulfilled lives. Our specialised ‘Learning for Life’ curriculum is carefully crafted to meet the unique needs of our learners, offering tailored support and opportunities for growth in a nurturing and inclusive learning environment.

Our focus on Capable Environments ensures that our school environment provides a highly structured, low arousal and a neuro-inclusive approach to learning. Our pupil’s speech, language and communication needs are complex and vary from specific speech sound and language difficulties to pupils who are non-speaking and use Augmentative and Alternative Communication systems (AAC) to communicate. The development of pupils' communication skills is promoted across our three curriculum pathways (Explore, Aspire and Inspire) and across the school day.

Many of our pupils have sensory processing needs. We provide a supportive sensory aware environment that acknowledges and respects these needs. All pupils have access to sensory-friendly spaces, including the Sensory Studio, Sensory Pod, Sensory Corridor, Sensory Circuits, Sensory Garden and access to specific sensory aids/resources that help regulate pupils’ sensory input.

Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. We work closely with parents, caregivers, therapists, educational psychologists, behaviour analysts and community partners to create a holistic support network around our pupils; fostering strong relationships and open communication to best meet their needs. Together, we form a tight-knit community dedicated to the growth and success of every pupil.

Our website offers a glimpse into the vibrant life of our school, showcasing the work that we do. Whether you are a prospective parent, a current member of our school family, or simply interested in learning more about us, we invite you to explore our website and learn more about what makes Kingsbury Academy such a special place. Please contact the school should you require any further information.

Thank you for taking an interest in our school.
