Kanes Hill Primary School

School Values and Ethos

‘Believe Achieve Succeed’

Our Vision

Happiness and a sense of belonging are the keys to success, and at Kanes Hill Primary School we hold this at the heart of all we do. We are committed to providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment, that supports us in delivering memorable and purposeful experiences. By creating curious minds, we encourage a thirst for learning and a willingness to take risks. We nurture children within our Kanes Hill family and our wider Inspire Learning Partnership to be respectful of themselves, each other and of our world, and be the best they can be: proud of who they are. 

Inspire Values 

At the core of everything we do, we live and learn by these Inspire values:

Innovation-   trying out new things
Nurture-           growing in a community of care and support
Success-          achieving our best
Passion-            enthusiasm and a love for learning
Integrity-           being honest 
Responsibility-   accepting accountability for our actions
Excellence-      achieve the extraordinary

 Learning Legends

Children who are confident in their own ability learn better and faster. They concentrate more, think harder and find learning more enjoyable. Therefore, we have devised four superheroes who have essential learning skills and we teach these skills alongside every other subject.

Kestrel is reciprocal and can work      alone & with others

Helix is resilient and never gives up

Prism is resourceful and uses resources and people to help her

Shadow is reflective and reflects about her learning


We believe that the primary years at school are a vital part of the whole development of each child. In support of that belief we strive to: 

  • Achieve the highest standards in learning and behaviour
  • Encourage a sense of self-worth as well as respect and tolerance for others
  • Encourage children to develop positive attitudes to life and to learning
  • Provide an exciting curriculum that is motivating, creative and fun
  • Actively promote British Values - tolerance, rule of law, justice, respect and liberty
  • Ensure that children flourish and achieve their full potential.
  • Engage the support of parents and community in the process of learning.
  • Encourage children to develop personal, spiritual and cultural values.
  • Our ultimate aim is to give all our children the confidence and enthusiasm to become lifelong learners in an ever changing world.


Positive Behaviours:

At Kanes Hill Primary School, we like to keep our expectations for behaviour clear and simple so that they can be easily understood by our whole school community.

In our school, we ask that everyone is 'Safe, Ready and Respectful.'

We very much believe that like learning, behaviour is something that should be taught. We invest a lot of time in teaching the children how to behave in our school and beyond. Lessons are created to teach pupils how to be 'safe, ready and respectful' in different areas of our school.
