Ethos and Values

At King Charles Primary School, our Ethos and Values are rooted in our acronym 


From fostering a culture of kindness to promoting innovation and sustainability, we cultivate an environment where every member of our community thrives.  With a focus on lifelong learning and aspiration, we empower individuals to reach their full potential, embracing challenges with resilience and striving for excellence in all endeavours. Join us as we embrace 'The KC Way' and embark on a path of growth, collaboration, and success.

This forms 'THE KC WAY'' which guides our journey towards excellence.

British Values 

The Department for Education states that there is a need:

“To create and enforce a clear and rigorous expectation on all schools to promote the fundamental British values of democracy, the rule of law, individual liberty and mutual respect and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs”.

The Department for Education defines British Values as follows:

We ensure that the fundamental British Values are introduced, discussed and lived out through the ethos and work of the school. All curriculum areas provide a vehicle for furthering understanding of these concepts and, in particular, RE, PSHE and Assemblies provide opportunities to deepen and develop understanding. We encourage our children to be creative, unique, open-minded and independent individuals, respectful of themselves and of others in our school, our local community and the wider world. We aim to nurture our children on their journey through life so they can grow into safe, caring, democratic, responsible and tolerant adults who make a positive difference to British Society and to the world.
