At Kingsmead we understand that each child is unique: we selflessly strive to unlock the potential every person has, no matter what role they hold within our school, always acting only in the interests of our young people. We do this by being kind, but also by removing any barriers to success, recruiting the best staff who are experts in their area of work and challenging them to be outstanding in their day-to-day practice and service. We demand the highest commitment from teachers, governors and students, insisting on honesty and openness in all that we do.
We do this for our students, parents and local community and believe that our values of resilience, innovation, mindfulness and employability will help us reach this goal. Our goal is simply to ensure that children at Kingsmead are happy, safe and successful.
Kingsmead is a school for taking chances, it is a school to excel in, it is a school that will always challenge you to try harder, to do better, to be honest with yourself and proud of what you achieve.
Our values help build our students' character and achieve our school vision. They are:
At Kingsmead we all share these values, we are honest in what we do, we lead our school together with combined wisdom, courage and kindness as well as a never-ending optimism for what our young people can achieve if we place them firmly at the centre of every decision that we make.
We take pride in finding every individual's talent and with great integrity and trust, help them to be the best, kindest version of themselves.
