At Kingsmead we understand that each child is unique: we strive to unlock the potential every person has no matter what role they hold within our school. We do this by challenging any barriers to success, recruiting the best staff and developing them to be outstanding in their day-to-day practice. We demand the highest commitment from teachers, governors and students.
We do this for our students, parents and local community and believe that our values; of being the best that you can be, never giving up, having a thirst for knowledge, behaving with honour and respect and always being ready to learn will help us reach this goal.
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 to be:
We attach these values to actions we call habits. Our habits are 'sayings' which help our school community to remember and apply our core values. They help us to identify them when they are seen or needed, model how to use them and celebrate when they are. Our habits go hand in hand with the vision and values of the JTMAT.
At Kingsmead we all share these values and we like to show it in everything we say and do. We take pride in finding every individual's talent and making them the best that they can be.
It is our obsession.
