  • Communications are Changing at Keyworth Primary............

    Published 15/05/24

    Along with other schools in our Trust, we have recently changed our system for recording Pupils information to Arbor from Scholarpack.

    Not only does Arbor provide an efficient system for school it also offers a Parent portal and App, which will allow us to communicate with you more efficiently and will enable you to access your child’s details at any time.

    You will be able to see easily if there is any data missing from our system and can update details directly through the portal, ensuring we always have the most up-to-date information for you and your child.  We will also use Arbor as our primary method of communicating with you via email or In-App messages.

    Over time, there will be more functions available to you through the portal, eliminating the need for lots of different apps/websites.

     You will be able to make payments for:

    • Trips and events
    • Top up school meal accounts
    • Purchase Uniform
    • Book and pay for after-school sports clubs and other school events.
    • Additional nursery sessions
    • Book Parent’s Evenings

    We will let you know when these are available and when to stop using Eduspot, School money: all balances will be transferred to Arbor.

    You will receive an email from Arbor from the beginning of next week (20th May), providing you with your login details for the Parent Portal.  As this may be the first email you have received from Arbor, please check your spam/junk folders if you have not received it by Wednesday. Your username will be your email address, as held on our records.

    Please follow the link in the welcome email and complete the registration process. Once you have logged in for the first time, you will then be able to download the Arbor App for easy use on your smartphone.  We urge parents to download the app, as it enables us to send free SMS messages to those with it, as well as being able to reply. 

    All communications will only be sent via Arbor after the 10th June, but until this date you may still receive text messages/emails through Scholarpack.

    The attachment will give you more information regarding the Portal and App.

    If you have any questions, please contact the school Office.

  • Moving on!

    Published 21/05/24

    Many of you will know Miss Adams - she works mostly as a Teaching Assistant with children in Y4 but also teaches other classes at KPNS. The children and families who know Miss Adams well will be sad to hear that she will be leaving KPNS after half-term to take up a teaching role in another school. Although we will all miss her, this is a great opportunity for Miss Adams and I know you will join me in wishing her every success in the future.

    We are fortunate that Mrs Lees, whoregularly works at KPNS, is able to cover Miss Adams' role until at least the end of the year.

    Please contact the office if you have any questions.

  • AttendANce - IMPORTANT

    Published 13/03/24

    Every school has a legal responsibility to promote good attendance. Put simply, poor attendance means it is very unlikely a child will achieve well.

    When a pupil’s attendance is very poor, a fine may be issued through Notts County Council. By Easter, it is likely they will have issued 20 fines to parents at KPNS. 

    Ideally, every child has attendance over 95% - giving them the best chance of keeping up with their learning. We normally consider below 90% as poor attendance. 

    The impact of poor attendance:

    Please come and talk to Mrs Garner if we can help you with anything linked to school attendance.

  • New School Cladding!

    Published 08/03/24

    We are very excited to confirm that the project to replace all exterior cladding at KPNS is due to start later this year. The project will also ensure the building is properly insulated, keeping it warm in winter and cool in summer. In recent years, we have also had a new roof and completely replaced the heating system - the cladding project will ensure the building is fit for purpose for decades to come!

    The pictures in this blog post are just ideas of what the school might eventually look like - architects have not yet finalised the design, including the colour scheme.

    As part of the final design process, the architects will give a presentation to a selection of parents, staff and governors on 26th March at 3.40pm. This will be a chance for them to hear the views and thoughts of adults associated with our school. 

    If you would like to attend the presentation, please complete the form below.  We may receive too many responses (and can't fit everyone in!) - as such, we will notify a selection of parents closer to the date of the meeting.

    KPNS belongs to the whole community, so we are very keen to hear a range of views.
