Our Values

Ethos

KIMS is committed to realising the vision of outstanding education for every child, by all teachers in every school.

At KIMS we also hold dearly to our hearts the story of the little girl and the starfish;

A girl was walking along a beach, there were thousands of stranded starfish, when she came to each starfish she picked it up and placed it back into the sea. A man observed the girl and said “You can’t begin to make a difference “. The little girl replied as she placed a starfish in the sea “Well, I’ve made a difference to that one!”

That is our simple objective – to make a difference to each and every one of our children.

Our School Vision

Our vision is of a joyful place where children are empowered to explore their potential through educational excellence, within an environment of growth and well-being.
