Teaching and learning is a process of co-operative teamwork. We encourage children to question, esteeming them as individuals and respecting their beliefs and thoughts; we expect them to show a similar respect for their peers, teachers, families and the wider community. In our teaching we encourage individuality of approach based on commonly agreed policies and the clear educational goals stated in the Departmental Policies/Programmes of Study/Schemes of Work.
At King’s we attempt to provide children with an excellent education combining old skills and traditional approaches with the very best that modern education can offer. Each Head of Department is constantly reviewing and updating their own syllabus content, teaching methods and the recommendations of the National Curriculum. INSET training is provided for all staff at the beginning of each term and individual staff are encouraged to attend relevant courses to update their own skills and abilities. We have a highly qualified, well-informed and well-trained staff.
The policy documents, which follow, outline the common aims and approaches followed throughout the school. Individual departments have set out their own special aims and approaches in their Departmental Policies.
