We welcome prospective parents to take a look around our school so that they can see the wonderful work we do, and decide whether we are the right school for their family.
We have also filmed our school in action, with Mrs Freeman giving a guided tour. You can take a virtual tour of our school through the video below, but we would very much like to meet you in person as well! To arrange a tour, please phone or email the school office.
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.
Mrs Janice Freeman

COVID-19 Updates & Risk Assessment
What to do if someone has symptoms of Covid-19?
If your child has one of the three Coronavirus symptoms (a cough OR a temperature OR a change in their sense of smell / taste) you MUST NOT send them to school until they have had a negative PCR test. A lateral flow test is not sufficient.
You should NOT use a lateral flow test for any person with symptoms. Instead, book a PCR Covid test either by calling 119 or going on this website: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
If possible, please arrange for your child to visit a test centre rather than getting a postal test. This is because postal tests take much longer and your child may end up missing more school.
If the test comes back positive, your child and any unvaccinated adults must isolate for 10 days. If anyone else in the household becomes symptomatic during that time, they should also self-isolate and get tested.
What are the Covid measures at school?
The majority of Covid measures from 2020-August 2021 are no longer in place; for example, we are not asking children to remain in "bubbles" or arrive at staggered start times.
The measures which have stayed in place are detailed in our most recent risk assessment. In summary, these are:
Ventilation through open doors and windows
Children and adults not attending the site if they have symptoms of Covid (until they have a negative PCR test) or if they test positive
The DfE guidance is that these measures are sufficient to bring the risks of Covid down to an acceptable level. However, in the event that there is a Covid outbreak at school, we have a contingency plan.
