Vision and Mission Statement


The vision of the school
The school vision statement is ‘Believe and Succeed’ linked to Jesus’ message ‘Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.’ John20:24. This is a reference to having faith, trust and self- belief. Our students may not have seen their academic and spiritual journey fulfilled on arrival at Kings, but they are encouraged to trust that through respecting and supporting each other and by promoting the nurturing Christian ‘values’ of the Kings Academy, anything is possible. The Kings’ Principles of PRIDE’ are ten underpinning principles that reflect the core teachings and values of Jesus and our British values; encouraging students, staff and our community to take pride in their thoughts and actions to be the best that they can be. Everyone is encouraged to work in unity as a team and by living out the Kings’ principles of Positivity, Perseverance, Respect, Reconciliation, Integrity, Innovation, Democracy, Diplomacy, Equality and Empathy all are given the opportunity to flourish, not only as citizens of the school community but of the wider world. The principles of PRIDE are interwoven into the very fabric of Kings, shaping our daily operations and the opportunities we have to offer, establishing a safe, secure and creative environment where everyone is valued.

Here at Kings we ask ourselves: Who are we? Why are we here? and How should we live?

We are Kings; a Church of England school with a vision for all to have faith to ‘believe and succeed’ as Jesus said ‘Blessed are those who have not seen and yet believe.’ Our vision at KINGS is for all to come together to acquire knowledge of the world we live in and most importantly of ourselves. Guided by our school Christian values ‘Kings principles of PRIDE’ we come together to build a school community that supports each individual to be the best one can be: mentally, socially, academically and spiritually. Our school is a community within a community: the Cheddar Valley community- ‘The Wessex learning Trust’, where everyone has value and in unity is supported to flourish and grow. Kings works in partnership with the Trust first and middle schools, staff, students, parents and carers to provide the very best learning and school experience for young people aged 2-19 years, giving everyone the opportunity to ‘believe and succeed.’
