We are a Church of England Academy and our Christian ethos is at the heart of everything we do. We nurture and support the spiritual development of our pupils and staff in a caring learning community and we regularly attend our local church and actively participate in the life of our parish. At Kingsland we are walking in the light with Jesus. Together we will develop lifelong learners, through an exciting and creative approach to learning. Together we will inspire our children and encourage them to believe in themselves and to strive for their dreams.

St Mary's Church
Kingsland is the Bucknall parish school and the school worships at St. Mary’s Church. The Bucknall Team Ministry lead worship in school at least once a week. Revd Nigel and Revd Dave support Kingsland in its Christian ethos. The children from Kingsland worship at St. Mary’s at Harvest, Christmas, Easter and for their leavers service.
Revd Nigel is Team Rector of the Bucknall Parish and alongside Revd Dave they regularly lead worship at Kingsland C E Academy and are both Governors.
Revd Nigel’s role is to work with the school staff so that Christian values and visions are celebrated and our children are spiritually prepared for life. He helps us to learn about the life of Jesus and we are encouraged to follow this example by “Walking in the Light with Jesus.” Revd Nigel also welcomes us to St. Mary’s Church and leads our Christian celebrations with the children at Harvest, Christmas, Easter and Leaver’s Service. We also enjoy contributing to some of the services held at St. Mary’s throughout the Christian calendar each year.
Revd Martin helps us to learn how to save as he leads our ABC Young Savers Scheme where, with other local schools, we have the opportunity to bank our money and learn about saving for the future.
Revd N Evans
Revd Petherick is our Children’s Chaplain at Kingsland C. E. Academy. Her role is to provide pastoral care for the children and their families alongside our Christian ethos.
This is vital to the school as the Chaplain is able to have a different relationship with pupils, which does not involve the discipline essential in the teacher child relationship. Revd Petherick will deliver this through availability in the playground before school, break, lunch time and after school and through mentoring and supporting individuals.
Kingsland C.E. Academy Charity Work
As a church school an important aspect of our ethos is thinking of others, particularly those less able or less fortunate than ourselves. We have a good relationship with many different charities and over the years we have raised considerable amounts of money to help and support children all over the world. We hope that by participating in fundraising activities our pupils will learn that they can make a difference and that if we all work together we can help to bring about change.
