Ethos and Values

“Where everyone can be great, not just good”

At Kingsleigh Primary School we aim to provide a safe, happy, stimulating environment for everyone.

Our three core values are Respect, Aspiration and Belonging and these are central to life within the school.  The values are promoted through our school characters of Astro Aspiration, Rizzy Respect and Planet Belonging.  These values underpin all the topics that are taught across the school and are interwoven into all areas of school life, from the classroom to the playground and the assembly hall to the staffroom.  Within an ethos of support, challenge and encouragement to succeed, we develop confident individuals with high self-esteem and a positive attitude to learning and working together.

We actively encourage all members of the school community to value and respect each other and the world around them through the Rights Respecting School Award ( Level 1) that is overseen by UNICEF. We believe that all children and adults in our school community have Rights that come entwined with Responsibilities that are enshrined in the United Nations Convention of Right of the Child (UNCRC).

Through high and consistent expectations, we believe that every child can work to the best of their ability and acquire the skills to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing world.
