Inspiring Every Child to Love Learning


The Values of KCIS underpin everything we do. They create an environment that helps our management, our teachers, our pupils and their parents understand what the school stands for and guides the school body in everything it does. In alphabetical order, KCIS’ Values are:



We believe in using a wide range of active methods to enhance the learning experience of the children. It is proven that sitting at a desk for the whole of the school day is not healthy for the mind and body of both children and adults. Thus KCIS uses a diverse variety of activities to ensure our children are active learners. Active learning also encourages the development of a diverse range of transferable skills and lifeskills that pupils are able to apply to every day life. As with life, learning at KCIS is not limited to the classroom environment, and pupils are encouraged to explore their world.



In order to provide an excellent learning environment, teachers, parents and children must work together as collaborators. Our students are encouraged to work effectively and willingly in collaboration with others, promoting team work, listening skills, leadership skills and appreciation of others. KCIS values and encourages the contributions of all our stakeholders to school life: parents are encouraged to play an active role in their child’s education at KCIS.



We value the dedication and commitment of all our stakeholders; we encourage pupils to be persistent and not to give up and be willing to try new things with energy and enthusiasm.



Through exploration and discovery children are able to form original ideas, encouraging them to think and problem solve, skills essential for everyday life. When children are allowed to make mistakes, they then have the freedom to invent, create and find new ways to do things. KCIPrimary encourages creativity in all areas of learning.



We are an inclusive community that celebrates diversity, believing it is a positive strength within our community. Mutual respect, tolerance and awareness are key elements in constructing a community of learners and ultimately, responsible global citizens. KCIS values and celebrates diversity and actively promotes international awareness including an understanding of different ways of life, and encourages its community to do so too. 



Children should always be encouraged to help themselves according to their own capabilities. When children feel empowered to make decisions and problem solve, they begin to take responsibility for their own learning, their own actions and their own choices.



KCIS values all members of the school community equally; and encourages other school stakeholders, including pupils to do the same. We promote and practice tolerance, respect and patience in the school community.



KCIS strives to be a place of outstanding education: we recognise and celebrate both academic and all round achievement both in teaching and learning. Our pupils are encouraged to work to the best of their ability, developing their confidence, courage, persistence, and perseverance, in both the learning environment as well as in all aspects of their life. Our staff are encouraged to perform to the best of their ability, to motivate and inspire our pupils to achieve their best, and to be positive role models for the pupils and school community. Staff are valued and regularly undertake professional development to remain at the top of their game, with all teaching and learning techniques, and staff development, informed by research and effective practice. KCIS also invests in high quality resources to support effective learning.



Honesty, Integrity and Responsibility are core values we aim to develop in all our pupils and therefore set the bar high by expecting school management and teaching staff to act with a high level of honesty, integrity and responsibility at all times. We encourage each other to be consistent with our words and actions; to follow through on what we say; to be trustworthy; and to take responsibility for our actions. KCIS also endeavours to be not only a responsible and fair employer but also to promote and practise environmentally friendly policies within the context of the school.



Every child has a unique character and an individual learning style. KCIS acknowledges these and allows for differentiation and equal access to all learning opportunities. KCIS actively encourages pupils to maintain their individuality and build on their interests, strengths and talents, whilst encouraging its community to give everyone a fair go. 



KCIS believes in the importance of respect for all members of our community, whatever their role. This includes demonstrating self control, showing care and kindness to others, sharing, cooperating, and being friendly, polite and thoughtful in dealing with others. We encourage all stakeholders to treat others the way they would like to be treated, listen when others are speaking, take turns and use good manners.
