Parents are very welcome to visit us when choosing their child's school.

As soon as you think you might like your child to attend our school, please contact us to register your interest.

Queensway strives to be a fully inclusive school and all pupils are welcome, including disabled pupils and those with special educational needs.  Our new Nursery Class is now open to children aged 3 and 4 years of age.  The aim is to build upon the continuing success of our Reception stage and give children a positive start to school life in a secure and nurturing environment.

Please refer to our Special Educational Needs page (under our Learning & Curriculum tab and Queensway School’s Accessibility Policy and Plan (under our Statutory Information tab) regarding:

  • The arrangements for the admission of pupils including those with special educational needs and disabilities
  • The steps we have taken to prevent disabled pupils from being treated less favourably than other pupils
  • The facilities we provide to help disabled pupils access our school.
