We have recently uploaded a number of new leaflets to assist with home learning and ongoing development. Topics include; internet safety, learning habits and writing support. You can see the full range of leaflets and workshops below:
We have also recently launched the Parent Portals for each year, which include photo galleries from the classroom and school trips, as well as curriculum overviews and letters for the home. Follow the link below to access the portals (this is password protected, so be sure to have the relevant year group password first!):
Engagement both inside the classroom and beyond is crucial to what we do as a school. We therefore appreciate any and all help from parents and carers in this regard, and hope to provide assistance wherever we can.
As parents and carers are by now no doubt aware, Kilburn Grange is a school that places a large emphasis on regular feedback. That’s why this month we’ve asked our families to complete two questionnaires!
In anticipation of an Ofsted visit this term, we would be very grateful if parents and carers could complete the survey on Parent View – this helps us to engage with your comments and take on board any areas of improvement. To complete the Parent View survey, follow the link below:
We’ve also sent out Parental Surveys as part of Bellevue Place Education Trust’s annual improvement review cycle. If you have received the questionnaire, please complete it by Wednesday 30th May to ensure that your views are counted. This is an important part of the school’s planning process and feedback will feed into the School Development Plan, along with the strategic planning of the Trust.
We appreciate the effort that goes into completing these surveys and only ask so that we can improve our offering, wherever we can.
Your opinions are very valuable to us and we look forward to hearing them!

We recently invited all of our parents to complete the annual KGS Parent Survey and we’d like to say a huge thank you to all of you who responded as we had 90% of families complete it. The results of this survey are very important to us and we will use the data to support the forward planning of the school. Click here to read the full letter sent to parents by Ms Richardson.
The parent community are very satisfied with school life at Kilburn Grange School, with the majority of parents describing the school as a happy and caring environment with high standards and clear values.
There is a very clear sense of what most parents regard as the primary strengths of the school. The most common responses were:
The clear school values which encourage the children to be caring, kind, and independent learners
The range of school trips and extra-curricular activities on offer to the children
A welcoming and professional staff and leadership team
Question % who graded Strongly Agree or Agree
My child enjoys coming to school 96 %
The school develops my child’s independence and responsibility 100 %
The school’s values and attitudes have a positive impact on my child 100 %
The school is welcoming and secure 98 %
Children have opportunities to develop socially and emotionally 98 %
I would recommend Kilburn Grange School without hesitation. My child is not only happy to come to school everyday and the learning is fun. The school teaches children to be caring and clever!
My daughter has been extremely happy at Kilburn Grange since her first day and looks forward to going to school and seeing her friends and teachers. She also looks forward to learning at school and coming home to show us and practice with us.
Kilburn Grange consistently exceeds every expectation. I could not be happier with the way my daughter is growing and blossoming. We feel very lucky we found it!
Lovely, friendly, easy to approach teachers who are very motivated a interested in teaching and give little kids the best possible knowledge from the beginning. Encourage kids to reach their potential and achieve the maximum. The words ” no, I can’t do it ” are not used in Kilburn Grange. Every child gets as much support and help as she/he needs. Kids are confident.
We recently had a visit from James Scott, a reporter from the Brent & Kilburn Times. James came to visit Kilburn to see the state-of-the-art building for himself and learn about what the future holds now we have full control of the building. Until recently, we have been sharing occupancy at Priory Park Road with Marylebone boys whilst they await their next accommodation. Over the summer some of the classrooms previously used by the older boys will be refurbished to make them suitable for primary school children.
Red Nose Day was a great success and we exceeded our target, raising £190! Thank you to everyone who donated, Ms Richardson kept her promise and did a silly dance in assembly dressed as a dragon. There’s still time to donate, see the link below to our JG page…!
On Friday 24th March we will be celebrating Red Nose Day. We’d like all the children to come dressed in red clothes and it would be great if parent/carers could make a donation to our Just Giving Page. We are aiming to raise £150 for comic relief which will provide a child in Kenya with schooling for 1 year.
