Our Philosophy

The philosophy of Kennall Vale is to provide a firm foundation on which all aspects of education will be built.  It is our belief that education is an exciting journey towards spiritual, moral, social, cultural, physical, and mental development and thus the well being of the individual.

We believe in equal opportunities for all the children in our school, irrespective of social background, culture, race, gender or ability.  In order to ensure future progress and success, we aim to provide a curriculum that is broad and balanced.  This entails following the guidance on the revised National Curriculum, Religious Education, Collective Worship, Health and Sex Education, PSHE and Citizenship.

It is our firm belief that we provide a learning environment that is safe, secure, structured, motivating, exciting, caring, but above all happy, in order for all children to develop a sense of high self-esteem in order to meet the challenge of attaining high academic achievement.

To achieve a positive learning environment, we will insist on appropriate behaviour both in and out of the classroom, and indeed in and out of school.  The school motto ‘Happy to Learn Together’ encapsulates our recognition that school is a content, continuing and collaborative learning environment for all.  OfSTED in February 2012 described ‘pupil behaviour’ and pupils ‘safety’ as outstanding.
