Coronavirus (COVID-19) Updates

Dear Parents, Carers, Community Groups and Partners who attend Kilburn Grange School,

We hope you are all staying safe and keeping healthy. We know that this can be a challenging time for all us. Following Government guidelines, Kilburn Grange School is still opened to children who primary carers are key workers and those children who have an EHCP plan, Child Protection/Child in Need Plan. We have a duty as a school to continue to offer provision for these children. This provision will be different to the daily teaching and learning we normally conduct as a school. The vast majority of our children will be engaging with home learning as provided by their class teachers.

We continue to communicate directly with you but we also wanted to reiterate and bring to your mind that all the key status updates and relevant links regarding COVID-19 are available on our Trust website.  This was a ‘latest news post’ and has now been upgraded to a NEWS page which you can reach directly from here.

This will continue to be updated, throughout the Coronavirus. 

Take Care and Keep Safe

Further to our notification, last November, to consult on changing the Published Admission Numbers (PAN) for Kilburn Grange School from 60 to 30 for Reception places from September 2021, we now share with you our final report.

As you can see there was limited response to the consultation and as such with the agreement of on-going discussions with the local authority, should demand for school places in the area rise again, the PAN will become 30.

Year 4 Science Museum Trip

On Wednesday the 11th of December, Year 4 visited the Science Museum to enhance their understanding of ‘Electricity’ and ‘Sound,’ two important units of work which they have been covering this term.

The class visited the Wonderlab, the most spectacular interactive gallery in the world. Spread across 7 different zones, the children had the chance to get hands on with real scientific phenomena, such as seeing lightening strike before their very eyes and experimenting with different forces on giant slides. They also observed a live science show in the Chemistry bar!

Thank you so much to the parents who came with us to help out on this fantastic trip.

Ava the Guide Dog visits our School

On the 3rd of December, we had a very special visit from Ava the guide dog. We learnt a lot about Ava’s special job and how she helps her owner with lots of different things, such as crossing the road, shopping in the supermarket and even helping to get on and off a bus.

Did you know that Ava is 4 and a half years old and when she turns 10, she will retire and go to live with a family? 

BPET launches Consultation to reduce KGS PAN to 30

Bellevue Place Education Trust (BPET) today, 2nd December 2019, launches consultation on a proposed reduction in the published admission number (PAN) for Kilburn Grange School with effect from September 2021

The current Published Admission Number (PAN) for Kilburn Grange School is 60. This means that the number of children admitted into the school in reception each year is a maximum of 60 children.

Under the terms of the School’s funding Agreement with the Secretary of State for Education, the overall capacity of the School (maximum number on roll) has been set at a final roll of 420 made up of 60 children in each year from Reception to Year 6.

There is limited outside space for the pupils and the school is in an area of surplus primary places and as a result the Trustees of Bellevue Place Education Trust (BPET) would like to reduce the Published Admission Number from 60 to 30 pupil places in Reception. 

Read the full proposal here and the DRAFT Admissions Policy 2021/22 which recognises the PAN reduction.

This consultation will run from 2 December 2019 to 31 January 2019 and you are invited to submit comments in writing about the proposal above to Tracey Blandford at the BPET: Tracey Blandford, Marketing Manager, Bellevue Place Education Trust c/o Kilburn Grange School, 52-58 Arcola Street, LONDON E8 2DJ, by midday on 31 January 2019 or by email to info@BPET.co.uk.
