Ethos & Values

The staff and governors at Kirkby Stephen Primary School are dedicated to providing a professional, caring and stimulating learning environment that enthuses our children.

We aim to make all children happy at school and to help them secure academic achievement, personal development and confidence, brought about through high quality teaching and learning experiences.

We expect high standards of behaviour and aim to help children develop an awareness of themselves and a regard for others.

In order to promote independent transferable thinking and learning skills we will encourage pupils to explore, become empowered and motivated in a climate of interaction, sharing and co-operation.

We strongly believe in developing close relationships between home and school and value developing links with our local and wider community.

Working together to enrich the experiences of our pupils.
