Our Vision

Kirkby Stephen Primary School: Our Vision


The staff and governors at Kirkby Stephen Primary School are dedicated to providing a professional, caring and stimulating environment. We aim to make all children happy at school and to help them secure academic achievement, personal development and confidence, brought about through high quality teaching and learning experiences. We expect high standards of behaviour, helping children develop an awareness of themselves and regard for others. In order to promote independent transferable thinking and learning skills we will encourage pupils to be involved, empowered and motivated in a climate of interaction, sharing and co-operation. We strongly believe in developing relationships between home and school, working together at all times to promote the aims of Kirkby Stephen Primary School.


Aims for our pupils:


  • To become highly motivated lifelong learners
  • To develop enquiring minds and a spirit of curiosity
  • To respect themselves, others and the environment
  • To achieve their full potential
  • To be self-disciplined and work independently and collaboratively
  • To be flexible and adaptable for the world in which they live
