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.
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.
Sharing The Good News
Kingsland is the Bucknall parish school and we regularly attend St. Mary’s Church at Harvest, Christmas, Easter and for leavers service. The Bucknall Team Ministry lead worship in school at least once a week and support our Christian ethos.
Revd Malcolm regularly leads worship at Kingsland.
He works 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 Jesus and we are encouraged to follow this example by “Walking in the Light.”
Revd Petherick is our Children’s Chaplain, providing pastoral care for the children and their families.
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, lunchtime and after school and through mentoring and supporting individuals.
The St. Bart’s Academy Trust
We believe that education is preparation for life and we seek to prepare each child to face life beyond the School with confidence.
Releasing Potential Together
We are part of the St. Bart’s Academy Trust which is committed to improving the life chances of children.
We aspire to set high standards for personal behaviour and self-discipline, with courtesy, consideration and respect for other people of all ages, races and cultures. We aim to deliver exciting and quality learning experience in a safe, secure and happy environment whilst endeavouring to achieve high standards in every aspect of school life by making the most efficient use of all the resources available.
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.

Planning Your Visit
A car park for school visitors is located via the Eaves Lane entrance. You can use the school postcode, ST2 9AS for your Sat Nav. Please note the school car park gets very busy at the beginning and end of the school day and no car is to be parked on double yellow lines as this causes congestion problems.
Thank you and enjoy your visit.
