Kingshill Infant School

Vision, Values and Our Curriculum Drivers

At Kingshill, we have many minds but one mission: to prepare children for a life full of learning.


Our vision is to empower our children, through equity, to acquire, demonstrate, articulate and value knowledge and skills that will prepare them for a life full of learning. We want our children to go on to participate in and contribute to the global world and practise the core values of the school: Respect, Hard-working and Teamwork.


How is this achieved?

  • Through a curriculum that has been designed to be coherent, connected and cumulative.
  • Through inclusivity, nurture, relationships and care.
  • Through support, guidance and clear direction.
  • Through expert instruction and delivery.
  • Through an unwavering dedication to our values and vision.
  • Through an equity approach.
  • Through promotion of the school’s mission, vision and values within the community.


Values are key to character development and need to not only be taught but caught and practised. Our programme of values education is highly significant from the very start of a child’s schooling. Our core values of hard-working, respect and teamwork permeate all that we do.  From the moment a student arrives at Kingshill Infant School, we encourage them to live these values.


We never give up. We remain positive so that we have the strength to persevere with even the most challenging tasks. We do what it takes for as long as it takes and we learn from mistakes. We are resilient, determined and dedicated to what we do.


We respect everyone for who they are. We are inclusive and believe in equity as well as equality. We think highly of our school and its community and show this through our actions. We are polite and courteous at all times. We are honest and considerate, we own-up to our mistakes. We don’t take advantage of others and helping a member of our team is helping ourselves.


We collaborate harmoniously with each other and other schools. We are willing to liaise and share. We avoid conflict through dialogue. We support each other and the school, remaining positive at all times. The relationships that we build are positive and built upon mutual respect. We are always kind and supportive.




Our Curriculum Drivers:


Our curriculum is driven by the children of Kingshill and what they need for the best start in their education. Our drivers are elements that are central to our school vision and ethos. They help to drive and shape the curriculum and are incorporated across all subjects and themes.

Vocabulary: to ensure our pupils can communicate effectively, using language effectively and ambitiously


Opportunities and Possibilities: to raise aspirations and broaden horizons showing curiosity and fearlessness of what is new or unknown.


Independence: to ensure our pupils start to develop the life skills necessary to work with growing independence and perseverance and to develop a commitment to learning and self-improvement.
