School Uniform

Primary: (Year 1 – 6):

The Primary school students are required to wear a KJP school shirt. This can be worn with dark (navy/black) or denim long/short trousers or skirts. The shirts are available to purchase from school for 25,000 ugx each.

 

Early Years (Toddler to Reception):

There is no uniform for the early years section. However, the play-based nature of the early years can mean clothes come back quite dirty at the end of the day, so please bear this in mind when choosing clothing for your children. 

Parents at KJP

At the beginning of the school year, you will have the opportunity to meet your child’s new class teacher. There are also 3 Parent Teacher Meetings throughout the year. This is for you to come and speak to your child’s teacher directly to discuss your child’s progress and answer any questions you may have.

Parents can stay up-to-date with what learning their child is doing at school through Class Dojo - an app on your phone or computer that allows us to send updates as well as manage behaviour. We will also be regularly updating our Facebook page.

School Clubs

It has been proven that extra-curricular clubs are beneficial in so many ways. From broadening a child's interests to developing their social skills; after school clubs are a fantastic opportunity for our young children.

We are now working with several skilled people who offer a variety of after school clubs at our premises. These clubs are open not only to our students, but also the general public.
