Federation Mission

At the Knaphill Federation of Schools we believe that children need a world class education and a curriculum which provides them with a wide range of experiences, develops high quality thinking, problem solving and creative and technological skills to compete with the best in the world.

We believe that all learners have a right to be challenged and motivated, in order for them to achieve their potential; individually, socially, emotionally and academically. We maintain that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone; it should be fun.Through our teaching we strive to equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to be able to make informed choices about the important things in their lives.

As an inclusive learning community we believe that every child is important and it is our duty to prepare our children to be life-long learners, be multi-skilled and ready to adapt to 21st and 22nd Century global changes.

Our Federation Mission Statement is at the heart of our curriculum intent and ensures that children achieve the best possible outcomes.


“We provide the best education, which ensures every child achieves their full potential, whilst successfully equipping them with the key life skills, knowledge and values necessary to flourish in an exciting, ever changing modern world.”


At the heart of the Federation are our four core values. These underpin everything that we strive to achieve for our pupils, staff, parents and community.

Our values are:

  • Trust
  • Respect
  • Perseverance
  • Enjoyment

By trust we mean everyone:

  • knows the importance of trusting each other and not letting people down
  • is reliable and has a sense of right and wrong
  • has a caring behaviour towards other people
  • trusts adults in schools to help them with any concerns they may have

By respect we mean everyone:

  • values all members of the school community
  • displays good manners at all times
  • displays tolerance of others with different points of views
  • shows respect for all indoor and outdoor learning environments and resources used

By perseverance we mean everyone:

  • is willing to work to the highest level
  • produces work to the best of their ability
  • develops confidence and enthusiasm for learning
  • keeps going even when work gets tough

By enjoyMENT we mean everyone:

  • promotes a sense of pride in their own and peers’ work and achievements
  • sets high standards and personal goals for improvement
  • is happy and eager to learn in harmony with each other
  • develops a healthy body and mind and values the difference education can make

We share and discuss values in assembly and teachers also explicitly teach values in PSHE lessons. Wherever possible, values are taught in other areas of the curriculum. Most importantly, adults in the school ensure that we are role-models for each of the values. We believe that teaching children these values improves pupils’ self-esteem, improves their behaviour and raises standards of learning even higher.

We provide opportunities for pupils to explore their own culture and have a clear understanding and appreciation of a wide range of cultural influences that have shaped Modern Britain.
