Our school curriculum is focussed on realising our mission statement:
‘Build the very best working relationships based on our Christian values in order to deliver learning experiences that last a lifetime.’
The King’s is committed to providing a curriculum that is broad, balanced, challenging and above all, develops ‘learning experiences that will last a life time’. We match our curriculum to the abilities, interests and aspirations of our students by considering four essential principles:
We are an academic school who aims to open doors. We understand the positive impact and contribution creative, practical and vocational learning brings to a child’s development as well as the need for academia.
Our hope is that every student who leaves our school has the qualifications, skills, knowledge and character to access aspirational Post-16 opportunities and to lead a life that is embellished with ‘positive relationships’, resilience and independence.
We not only recognise the importance of providing an academically enriching curriculum, but we also embrace our wider role in preparing students for life in modern Britain. As such, across all subject areas, staff make a concerted effort to draw pertinent links between wider areas of the curriculum including:
- British Values where we broaden students' perspectives and promote their sense of moral and social responsibility through a range of spiritual, moral, social and cultural opportunities;
- Literacy and Numeracy where we afford opportunities for all students to develop a high level of literacy and numeracy required for success in the wider curriculum and in adult life;
- Enrichment where we provide an appropriate range of opportunities and experiences to inspire students to succeed in the next stage of their academic career;
- Christian Distinctiveness where we partner with home, church and the local community to help students make a positive contribution to God’s world.
