Colville Primary School (Kensington and Chelsea)

Three and four year old funding
Free early education for 2-year-olds
Registered to provide 30 Hours Free Childcare

Our school, situated in the heart of Portobello Road, is a stimulating, diverse and friendly place that is dedicated to the success of our children. Our staff and governors work together to ensure our pupils make outstanding progress and attain high standards.

We have strong partnerships between our parents and community. This enables us to create a special and unique educational experience as soon as your child starts with us.

Your child will find an organised community, in a safe setting, that fosters scope for intellectual, emotional, physical, social and moral development. In our caring and intellectually stimulating environment, we always offer praise and encouragement. We have high expectations of achievement and behaviour, so that all may thrive and enjoy their days in our school. 

We provide day care from the age of 6 months through to 2 and a half years old for up to six children (7.30am-5.15pm). Our nursery offers places for up to 60 children for children age 3 to four years old. Children can start during the the term in which they turn 3. The core day is 8.50am to 3.10pm. Wraparound care is organised by our staff team (7.45am to 6pm).

Late Collections:
We expect every child to be collected on time or prebooked for extended day care. If you have not collected by 3.30pm, your child will wait in extended day care for you to arrive. We will bill you for the first session of extended day care to cover this cost. Please note this is the same for 4.30pm collections. All children staying in the second session must be prebooked.

Our extended day care closes at 5.45pm promptly.

Parents of children who need 1:1 support in the school day, must first speak with the Inclusion Team or a member of the senior leadership team before booking a space for their child.

We reserve the right to refuse the use of this service for any pupil whose behaviour is not acceptable. The Head of School's decision is final in all circumstances regarding a child's attendance in this service.

School clubs are also clubs. When available, we can offer places to children outside of Colville. There is a 20% surcharge on the club fee for this service.
