Kettlefields Vision Statement
At Kettlefields all children should achieve their potential regardless of background or special educational needs. We take a holistic approach to the children in our care; emotional well-being and mental health are paramount. Children should be given a wide variety of experiences and opportunities during their time at Kettlefields. They should be able to explore the arts and STEM subjects through hands on experiences. Kettlefields should be a beacon of excellence to those around us. We will forge close relationships with other schools to share best practice and with companies and organisations in our local community to enrich our children’s education. We aim to engage and excite our children in learning giving them the tools to be life-long creative, innovative learners.
At Kettlefields our ambitious broad and balanced curriculum is creative and challenging. It offers all of our children the chance to shine. We provide our children with the skills and knowledge they need to follow their dreams. Through a wide variety of external partnerships we enrich our children’s education. We want to create good citizens fostering a community ethos within our school. Our curriculum is inclusive and teaches children to be tolerant. We want our children to understand their own and others emotional well-being in order to create resilient young people who are prepared for the challenges that lay ahead of them.

Kettlefields Learning Toolkit
As a school we have identified nine behaviours that we believe make a good learner. These are based around the Characteristics of Effective Learning used in Early Years. Each month we focus on one learning behaviour from the Kettlefields Learning Toolkit and children are awarded Powerful Learner Certificates for displaying good learning behaviours. The behaviours in our Learning Toolkit underpin our vision statement and are the values around which our school is based.
