headteacher's blog

Catriona Stewart - headteacher since we opened in 2004

2018-19 Blog

I am privileged to have been a school leader at Kingsmead since March 2004 and our opening to children the following September. Since then a dedicated staff and governing body, children and families, have worked together in partnership to make Kingsmead Primary a place we can all be justly proud of.

The headteacher's blog is my own views. As well as sharing thoughts and the school's work on local issues, specific to Kingsmead Primary and its children, it sets our work in a national and global perspective. Our work as teachers carries great responsibility. We will be passing on to Britain and wider world citizens of the future. Citizens who will inherit and need to deal with the many issues our generation has left for them, not least a climate and environmental crisis occurring before our very eyes. They will also inherit, in many ways, what has become a more inclusive and tolerant society. Intolerance and discrimination still happen but they are noticed, no longer ignored and we have an Equality Act to protect us all from discrimination. We haven't got everything wrong! We want Kingsmead children to be useful and kind citizens we can all be proud of: children, young people and adults who will care for themselves, others and the environment, leaving their communities and planet in a better state than they found them.

I hope this blog may be of interest to stakeholders in our community school and other people interested in the day to day life, events and thoughts going on in our state primary school in Cheshire.
