Head of School Welcome

Welcome to King Charles: a place where children are inspired to achieve, engaged to learn and valued by all.

When visiting our school, you will be warmly welcomed by our office staff, who will share our safeguarding routines and systems before entering our magnificent school fiction library. This is the heart of our school where pupils develop a love of reading in an environment inspired by the local history of King Charles II at Boscobel House.

As you walk through the school you will see courteous, well-mannered pupils who show respect for each other, their surroundings and equipment provided. The communal displays show how much we value the work of our children and the curriculum we deliver. Visitors are welcomed into classes by visit coordinators who speak with confidence and passion about their learning journeys and show pride in their work. Classrooms are vibrant, purposeful zones where current, previous and future learning is shared through working walls that are added to daily and referred to continuously as classes work collaboratively to achieve challenges set.

We pride ourselves on the opportunities we provide for our children to access ICT to enhance teaching and learning and this will be clear as you walk around and see pupils developing number fact knowledge, presenting work in a variety of medias as well as being transported to other worlds in our immersive technology suite. You may witness pupils taking part in cooking lessons as part of a Maths unit on ratio in our Design Technology room, or a music lesson in our American style diner. All pupils, regardless of their ability or need, will be receiving quality first teaching with a wide range of support tools and strategies to enable them to make progress and succeed.

When talking to pupils, visitors will be told about the wide range of extra-curricular clubs we offer including; debate club, chess club, cooking club, board-game club, coding club and choir. We want to celebrate the talents of our children and we are incredibly proud of the sporting achievements of the vast range of teams we have in school.

For learning to be effective, memories and 'wow moments' that they will remember forever must be made. These, along with parent inspire days and expert visitors to the school, allow our children to access a fully rounded education with a balanced, broad curriculum.

We look forward to welcoming you to our school, please feel free to book an appointment see the fantastic things going on here.
