In each newsletter there is information about the value that we are learning about in school. Parents and carers are encouraged to participate in learning with their child through story and tasks that can be brought in to school to be celebrated.
Kensworth is a school we can be proud of. The school is a vibrant, positive place to be.
Our children become responsible citizens. They enjoy coming to school and are motivated by their successes. They are secure in the knowledge that this school welcomes their whole family and works with them as a team, with the welfare and education of each child being our focus.
All staff have a positive, open minded approach to sharing good practice with other schools. The school community as a whole is working coherently together with a clear understanding of the school’s agreed vision statement and aims. Development and improvement is continuous and constantly strived for.
We hold high expectations of achievement across all aspects of school life.
To provide high standards of teaching and learning for all pupils we will:
- Work together to promote awareness of environmental issues taking advantage of the local surroundings, outdoor learning and visitors to enhance our curriculum.
- Provide an inclusive environment which educates, develops and prepares all our pupils for life in multi-cultural Britain.
- Encourage children’s own independence, self-esteem and natural curiosity.
- Encourage children to adopt a healthy lifestyle through exercise, diet and well-being.
- Recognise all children as individuals with their own rights and responsibilities.
- Value and encourage parental partnerships with exchange of ideas and information.
- Actively involve members of the local and wider community, valuing their positive contribution to the learning experience of all.
- Ensure a confident start to the children’s school days, recognising and building on their previous knowledge and understanding.
- Invest in the future by continually seeking opportunities to improve all aspects of school, through forward thinking and embracing change.
