Breaking news!

  • Mrs Martin has launched a picture book challenge with a video - see here.

  • We are publishing letters from children - click here.

  • Staff have been video recording themselves reading stories and performing music for the children to enjoy - click here to reach them.

Mrs Freeman now has a Twitter feed on the school closure page so that she can communicate directly with the school community on our website.  Most staff are now using Twitter feeds to quickly update you about opportunities for learning and to celebrate children's achievements.  The feeds are all displayed on the relevant pages of this website, but - adults - do feel free to follow them from your own Twitter accounts to stay up to date.

We have sent you details about Oak Academy, who  - in partnership with the Department for Education - are producing a series of online lessons.  We strongly recommend that you build these into your daily routine if you can. 

We have now completed a month of social distancing.  Well done!  Please take the time to think about everything that has gone RIGHT because if you are doing your bit to keep everyone safe and well, by staying at home, not meeting up with other people, and washing your hands, then you are already doing lots of things which are making a difference.

We have a dedicated section for wellbeing now - click here.  We will continue to add to it.

We have reorganised the school closure section so that each yeargroup has its own page - hopefully that will make it easier to navigate.  If anybody would like to send in a piece of work they are proud of, please send it to home.learning@bucksgfl.org.uk (not via Twitter, please), and we will publish it here.

We are checking which children are either emailing in work or completing tasks on Bug Club, My Maths and PiXL because this is the only way we can keep an eye on pupils' learning.  If we can't see any record of home learning for your child, we will be contacting you soon - please don't be offended if your child is working and you get an email; like you, we are working with the limitations this situation has caused.

For any families who are finding it difficult to cope,  please call the office so we can put you in touch with Ms Searle or Mrs Bower who will be able to listen to you, encourage you and offer whatever appropriate guidance they can.  These are certainly challenging times and it is only natural that some of us could do with a bit of help.  Please remember that  doing your best is good enough.

Please use the resources on the school closure pages as best you can.  There is no expectation that your child should do all of them or that they follow a timetable at home like they would at school but they do need to try some of the work so that they don't forget the things that they have worked so hard to learn this year.  We've tried to include work which children can access fairly independently. Routines will be important to keep home life manageable, if you would like advice on this, please contact Ms Searle. (She can be reached via the office email.)

There are also lots of fun activities to help keep them busy, creative and stave off boredom! 

 

We are updating the school closure page regularly so please keep checking.

Head Teacher's Welcome

Welcome to the King’s Wood School and Nursery website.

 

I hope you find all the information you need here. However, if you can’t find what you are looking for please don’t hesitate to contact us. We always welcome enquiries and visits and I am happy to show you around by appointment.

We are a two form entry Primary School and Nursery, within the vibrant and diverse community of Totteridge in High Wycombe. Our school reflects that diversity and we pride ourselves on an ethos which promotes mutual respect and values every individual.

We place children’s learning and well being at the centre of all we do and offer a well resourced, attractive environment in which to learn and grow.

Our aim is to provide a rich and stimulating, skills based, curriculum for your child, which promotes aspiration, independence and good citizenship. In this way we hope to enable every child to achieve their full potential.

Most importantly King’s Wood is a happy place and our children love coming to school.
