New Parent Survey – Autumn 2019

Our thanks go to all of our new parents who responded to our recent survey. We were very keen to find out your experience prior to and since joining the school in September. We can and will use the data to support the future planning for new starters and we will also use it to continue and develop our daily interaction with you.

An amazing 100% said they ‘Agreed’ or ‘Strongly Agreed’ that ‘their child has settled well into their class’;

86% ‘would recommend Kilburn Grange to a friend’

81% rated their overall experience of the school so far as ‘Good or Excellent’.

We are so pleased to share with you a few feedback quotes:

•             “Everything so far is perfect and I’m loving the communication the school has with the parents.”

•             “Very pleased that my children are attending this school.”

•             “I think the reception teams in both classes are really passionate about teaching and that is reflecting on the kids.  They love it. Thanks for all your hard work.”

New Parent Survey 2019

Mayor of Brent visits Kilburn Grange School

Mayor of Brent visits Kilburn Grange School

On Tuesday 15th October, Kilburn Grange School was delighted to welcome His Worshipful The Mayor of Brent, Councillor Ernest Ezeajughi.

He spoke to the whole school about his special ‘Robe of Office’, how he supports schools and, most importantly, about his journey from his birth and education in Nigeria to his life in London and his path to becoming a Mayor.

He visited the school as part of a series of special visits, visitors and workshops to celebrate ‘Black History Month’.

After taking questions from the children, he reminded us that whether you are black, white or from any other creed, you can be anything you want to be if you work hard and show respect to others.

He ended with famous words from Martin Luther King: ‘Let us all work to be the light that drives out darkness.’

The children had such a fun time, being creative and designing their own toys!
