Kingsbury Green Ethos, Vision and Mission Statement

Achieving our ambition to become a world class school is the next natural step for Kingsbury Green. Our track record of ambitiously establishing a compelling vision and then systematically setting out to achieve this has brought great success for children and the community.

This vision document has been derived from consultation with staff, pupils, parents and governors and is now in its final form and is based on the principles of high performance learning

Ethos: High performance learning principles:

  • We are a “#LearningFirst” school. This means teaching is driven by assessment of pupils needs. Our goal is to be rid of labels that define pupil “ability”. Our goal is to be rid of ability groups and any other form of ceiling to children’s learning.
    We aspire to remove limiting language and practice from our pedagogy.
  • We focus on our children, their profile and identify and what kind of child we want to develop and build our accountability around this
  • We create a core curriculum that matches our vision and enrich it accordingly
  • We make it explicit to children what we are aiming for and their role
  • We ensure children trust us to enable them to be successful
  • Academic and pastoral support goes hand in hand – in partnership with families
  • We ensure consistency – all classes – each year group
  • We know that potential +personal motivation + opportunities and support = high achievement

Vision statement

At Kingsbury Green we will create the opportunities for all children, parents and staff to expect excellence as standard. The learning climate and environment will offer and develop in children and staff, empathy, intellectual and physical agility and the pleasure of hard work and a job done well.
