Be The Best You Can Be

At Kingfield, we aim to provide the highest standards of education in an inclusive environment through effective teaching and learning.
We believe that learning should be exciting and challenging in order to create enthusiastic, independent learners who are motivated to be the best they can be and take pride in their achievements. Whilst we follow the 2014 National Curriculum, it is coherently planned and sequenced to allow progression of knowledge and skills which are relevant to children in both the local and global community.
The promotion of pupil’s spiritual, moral, social and cultural development is at the heart of our school curriculum and is demonstrated in our school ethos. Our curriculum is underpinned by the school’s values: respect, resilience, empathy and reflection, which we believe are integral to ensuring our children leave Kingfield with the skills needed to be successful learners and citizens.
