we care for ourselves, other people and our environment

Values and Ethos

At Kingsmead we are useful, kind and ready to learn, unlimited. 

People learning and working at Kingsmead Primary School are supported in developing a lifelong love of learning and to be useful and kind members of the local and global community.

A broad and rich curriculum supports the development of intellect and good character. At Kingsmead we believe in the intrinsic value of learning and study to nurture our curiosity, interest, joyfulness - and awe and wonder. Learning and achievement lead to better outcomes and happier lives and foster a deeper understanding and respect for the diversity of human culture and the natural world. 

Through individual and collaborative effort, every person learning and working at Kingsmead is encouraged to embrace difficulty, demonstrating grit and perseverance. Our achievements lead to satisfaction, pleasure and pride in making work of quality.

Each person learning and working at Kingsmead is expected to contribute and participate fully to the benefit of themselves, other people and the environment. We understand that, while only one species among many, our actions will affect the future of our planet.

We aim for every child (and adult) in our school community to: 

Enjoy and achieve high standards through being articulate and independent learners with a thirst for knowledge and including high standards of literacy and numeracy;

Stay safe through creating a stimulating physical and emotional environment where everyone is included and aware of their rights and responsibilities so we can learn and work in safety and security;

Make a positive contribution through placing excellence and collaboration at the heart of the school’s work and development; fostering attitudes of pride, self-esteem and motivation, resulting in mutual trust and cooperation;

Be healthy through making healthy, ethical and sustainable life choices;

Achieve economic wellbeing by wanting for less, appreciating more, and so being ethical, responsible and intelligent citizens.
