Learning with truth and love


Our Academy curriculum is focused 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, rooted in developing ‘learning experiences that will last a life time’.


Our Vision is to enable every child to achieve their God-given academic and personal potential, so that they can make a positive impact in the world. We seek to be a community built on knowing God’s truth and love. Our values are distinctively Christian, governing and underpinning all that we do, and therefore we are wholly inclusive of children with any faith and no faith. Our Values are distinctively Christian, governing and underpinning all that we do: Grace We aim to reflect God’s love and grace as revealed in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, never settling for less than going ‘the extra mile’ in caring for our students and staff.


Thankfulness: We aim to be a school that is thankful to God for the education and opportunities we receive, and thankful to one another for every valuable contribution to our community.


Trust: We aim to be a community that trusts in God, and provides a safe and secure environment in which we can trust one another so that everyone feels valued and is able to share their opinions and grow in confidence.


Justice: We aim to be a community of justice, where we value every person, made in the image of God, regardless of age, gender, ability, sexual orientation, background or religion.


Aspiration: We aim to nurture a sense of curiosity and excitement about God’s world that will stimulate our students to search for truth, meaning, purpose and a faith by which to live. We aim to enable them to develop the joy of discovery and the discipline of study for the whole of their lives.


Celebration: Learning in God’s truth and love, we take pride in success and celebrate what we achieve together – academically and creatively.


As a church school, our aim is neither to proselytise children, nor in any way persuade or pressurise them to adopt a lifestyle which embraces a Christian morality. However, we do wish to help children understand the Christian faith and Christian morality which springs from the faith, so they understand a key world religion, and make educated choices in the way they conduct their lives as a result.


The Church of England Education Office faith-sensitive and inclusive approach to Relationships Education, Relationships and Sex Education1 (RSE) and Health Education (RSHE) is underpinned by biblical truth. Everyone will be treated with dignity as all people are made in the image of God and loved equally by God. All pupils have a right to an education which enables them to flourish and is set in a learning community where differences of lifestyle and opinion (within that which is permissible under UK law) are treated with dignity and respect; bullying of all kinds is eliminated; and where they are free to be themselves and fulfil their potential without fear.
