Vision and Values

Our vision and values are at the core of everything we do. They underpin our teaching and learning, and provide an environment which prepares our pupils as confident, happy citizens.


Vision and Values


All children are treated as individuals; there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach.  Personalising learning is our aim, giving children the education they need and want.  Learning is active, hands on, engaging and fun.


Welcome to Kents Hill Infant Academy


An infant school where the education of the individual child defines every activity we do.


“Every learner is entitled to a curriculum rich and varied, challenging and inspiring, which enables every individual to fulfil her or his potential to the highest possible standard; so that all, for the benefit of all, are able to shape their destinies and create a better world.”


We strive for our children to;


Respect themselves and the community, seeking to have a positive impact on others

Be polite, calm, caring, honest, trustworthy and helpful

Be responsible, independent and supportive of each other

Be tolerant, open minded and not prejudiced

Be determined to have a strong work ethic

Have good communication skills

Strive for high achievement and standards



At Kents Hill Infant Academy every child’s happiness matters to us


We encourage them to;


Develop their emotional, spiritual, moral and cultural awareness

Not to be involved in bullying, racism or any forms of harassment

Achieve outstanding results in both key stages

Achieve well regardless of their ability, home background, gender or ethnicity

Understand and respect others feelings, values and beliefs

Be enterprising and willing to take responsibility



We aim to inspire children to take a risk, challenge themselves and have a go through first hand learning experiences.  We facilitate teaching that encourages the children to take control of their learning and to develop into active learners in readiness for their onward journey.


Joining Kents Hill Infant Academy


Children joining in reception are given opportunities to learn through play which is predominantly child-led. It promotes independence and engages children in their learning.  Kents Hill Infant Academy has a focus on building relationships with parents and children before they start school which enables the individual to flourish.

Emotional Health and Well-Being of children

Special Educational Needs


Kents Hill Infant Academy is an inclusive school which welcomes all children.  We believe that removing barriers to learning for children enables them to achieve their best.  We seek to provide the most effective support.


High Expectations


At Kents Hill Infant Academy, we believe that the abilities of every child can be developed through perseverance, determination and hard work.  This view creates a love of learning in children and develops a resilience that is essential in later life.


Growth Mindset


Here at Kents Hill Infant Academy we embrace the concept of Growth Mindset. This approach develops children’s belief in their own abilities and intelligence.


Role of the Parents and Carers


At Kents Hill Infant Academy we believe that parents and carers play a fundamental role in their children’s learning.  The school is committed to working with individual families and their children in order to provide the highest quality education.  We encourage a positive working relationship with our parents and carers.
