Keyworth Primary
& Nursery School

Ethos & Values

Our motto, 'Unlocking Every Child's Potential', is at the core of our ethos & values. We recognise that each pupil is unique and this is at the forefront of our thinking every day as we plan, teach and inspire with our broad curriculum.

The school continues to be very inclusive with an unwavering belief that a supportive, caring  and family atmosphere provides a fertile learning environment to encourage self belief and challenge every child, regardless of their background or ability.

We believe in strong community cohesion, within the school and beyond. Our aim is to break down barriers so we can all learn together whilst developing meaningful working relationships. By doing this the school helps to nurture positive attitudes and mutual respect whilst ensuring we all aspire to make positive contributions to our school, local community and society as a whole. 

We know that collaboration drives continuous improvement at all levels and we actively encourage pupils, staff, governors and families to work together for the benefit of everyone. This extends beyond the school and KPNS is always looking outwards for opportunities to work alongside other schools and the community. This helps share ideas, resources and best practice to constantly enhance the educational provision, yet retaining our individual identity.

Innovation and forward thinking is also key to our values in driving school standards. We continue to blend 'tried and tested' methods with new ways of doing things to benefit the children during their journey through education.

In essence, everything we do has every child at heart because they are the future.
