We are an inclusive, vibrant community committed to enabling our pupils to be successful citizens with a great love for learning. Our school environment is safe, exciting and welcoming to our children and their families. Our curriculum is broad, rich, immersive and purposeful. We encourage our children to be independent, innovative and curious learners. As well as academic success we strive to develop the children’s emotional intelligence and their empathy for others.
The key qualities we encourage in children through modelling in our own behaviour and discussing in assemblies and lessons are illustrated below.
At Kilmorie we believe that the qualities enshrined in our school through the model of the ‘Kilmorie Child’ (above) together with teaching, which engages and excites children, creates a school where learning behaviour is excellent and children develop good interpersonal skills which enable them to regulate their own behaviour in and around the school.
We expect all adults who work with children to support the Kilmorie Qualities and to model positive behaviour between themselves and with children. We work in partnership with parents and carers to promote positive behaviour and problem solve when necessary.
The high expectations of behaviour in our school allow children to contribute to their learning experience and flourish in a proactive way whether in school, on educational visits or visiting places whilst representing the school.
