Vision Statement

At Kings Monkton School our vision is to create an inclusive community built upon a happy, innovative and outstanding learning environment.

We will empower our children to become respected citizens to enable them to make valuable contributions locally, globally and to contribute to our world’s sustainable future.

This can be done most effectively when all staff, parents and children understand their responsibilities and work together towards the same goals, as detailed in our home/school agreement.

The Learning Environment

Our school will:
• Provide your child with a high standard of education, within a balanced curriculum
• Ensure that our learning environment is stimulating and challenging
• Celebrate your child’s academic and personal achievements
• Provide the scaffolding needed to enable your child to achieve their full potential
• Care for your child’s safety and well-being by observing and listening to them

A Healthy, Happy Community

Our school will:
• Teach your child to develop a positive attitude to one another, regardless of gender, race, culture, belief, values, age and need
• Encourage your child to become an active member of our community and help them to see that they can have an impact on the world around them
• Regularly meet with you to communicate the progress of your child, celebrating their strengths and explaining how we can support them in their areas for development
• Provide information to you about our school, including relevant policies, meetings, workshops, activities, newsletters and open days
• Be very happy to welcome you if you would like to contribute to our school’s broader curriculum. We recognise that the community of Kings Monkton School holds a wealth of talent, experience, diversity and enthusiasm that our school could benefit richly from


The school will:
• Set differentiated and achievable homework to extend the curriculum and provide the opportunity for independent learning. Clear information will be provided so that you will be able to help your child if required.
• Provide information to give you the confidence to work with your child at home

The parents/carers will:
The Learning Environment
I as a Parent/Carer will:
• Make sure that my child arrives at school by 8.25am
• Make sure that my child is wearing named school uniform or other suitable clothing and that their PE kit is brought into school for all games and PE sessions
• Ensure that my child arrives in school every day with everything they need to learn, including their School Planner
• Endeavour to provide a safe, secure and happy environment for my child’s learning to be extended into the home

A Healthy, Happy Community

I as a Parent/Carer will:

• Let the school know of any concerns or worries that may be affecting my child’s learning, behaviour or ability to do homework, as this can then be resolved quickly
• Support the school by encouraging my child to develop a positive attitude towards our diverse, multi-cultural community
• Attend meetings with my child’s teacher and other staff, aiming to be positive and productive, working towards moving my child on in their learning
• Read all information sent home as this gives me important details of relevant policies, meetings, workshops, activities, newsletters and open days
• Support the school and Kings Monkton Parent Association (KMPA) when fundraising and organising activities for the benefit of a variety of causes, and for our school
• Support the school’s policies and guidelines on learning, behaviour and uniform, both in school and at home
• Support school in the teaching of safe and secure internet use at home


I as a Parent/Carer will:

• Will support the school by making sure that homework tasks are completed and returned on time. A child who hasn’t completed their homework is often an unhappy, worried one!
• Will use my talents and experiences to enhance my child’s learning at home. My child will benefit greatly from what I can show them, discuss with them and teach them.

I, as a Pupil of Kings Monkton School, will:

• Understand that I have rights within the school, some of which are:

To be treated kindly
To be listened to
To be helped
To have a friend
To play and join in games
To be happy
To feel wanted
To be safe
To be special

• Respect other children’s culture, race, feelings, beliefs and values
• Accept responsibility for the things that I do
• Be responsible for my school and homework
• Ask for help if I need it and try my best in all that I do
• Ensure that I take home all school letters
• Follow the school’s Code of Conduct
• Be kind and speak politely to everyone in school
• Take good care of the building, equipment and school grounds
• Behave in a safe way
• Be helpful
• Tell a member of staff if I am worried or unhappy
