As an inclusive Church school we value the way that each child is unique and we have high aspirations for every child. We recognise that children learn best when they feel happy, safe and secure, within a nurturing school environment. Our curriculum stimulates children’s natural curiosity and enthusiasm, making learning ‘come alive’ through a broad and rich programme of study, activities and events.

We are committed to achieving excellence in all areas of the curriculum. We link the National Curriculum subjects and RE through topics wherever possible, increasing children’s motivation and enjoyment of learning by making it relevant and meaningful for them. Where appropriate we teach subject areas discreetly and capitalise on the specialist skills and talents of staff.

Our curriculum promotes independent learning, transferable life skills and global citizenship, enabling children to grow into successful, informed and responsible citizens. Children are partners in their learning and have many opportunities to influence their learning and environment, for example, via the Pupil Committees. The Royal Kent School has a history of strong ties with St Andrew's Church, which supports the school in developing the moral and spiritual growth of all children. Links with schools locally and internationally enable children to learn from others and develop their understanding and appreciation of other communities.

Learning outside the classroom and care for the environment are highly valued. Day and residential visits complement and enrich the curriculum, providing memorable learning through first hand experience. Special events such as community events and curriculum weeks enable children to develop their knowledge and skills through working with professionals, volunteers and other specialists.

We recognise the crucial part parents play in their children’s education and strive to maintain good parent partnerships. Parents are welcomed in to school; they make a significant contribution to school life and their views inform our school development planning. We aim to keep parents well informed about the curriculum, homework, teaching and learning methods and their children’s progress.
