About us

Kingsteignton School Ethos Statement

 

Our school motto is ‘Aiming Higher, Achieving More’ – a philosophy that  underpins all that we do.

We  seek to provide all children with an outstanding and inspiring education within a caring and nurturing environment.

We value pupils’ individuality and celebrate their unique gifts and talents through a range of opportunities designed to help achieve personal and academic excellence.

Our curriculum  motivates and inspires children to explore and learn about the world around them. It helps to develop an awareness of their roles within the community and to prepare them for healthy, active lives that embrace technology.

We  promote the values of  friendship, compassion, justice, courage and perseverance.

 

Partnership working with the United Schools Federation

Kingsteignton School  works in close partnership with the United Schools Federation (USF). This comprises St Michael’s Primary School in Kingsteignton (an outstanding school – Ofsted 2011); St Catherine’s Primary School and Nursery, Heathfield (a good school – Ofsted 2015); Marldon Primary School (a good school – Ofsted 2015) and St Mary’s Primary School, Brixton (an outstanding school – Ofsted 2014). The USF’s track record is remarkable. They have worked not only with the schools within the federation to bring them up to a very high standard but also with a range of additional schools across the county with a variety of needs to help improve and develop them. By working in partnership with the USF, the school  benefits from a shared curriculum and  shared expertise (eg SENCO (Special Needs Co-ordinator), counselling, leadership). In addition, children  have access to a wide range of clubs run across the federation schools; a fleet of minibuses and USF residential visits.
