Strategic Plan 2017 - 2019

The Strategic Plan of Charlton Kings Junior School has been set by the Governing Body in order to provide clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction for the school.

Our Vision

At Charlton Kings Junior School, our vision is to be an exceptional school that provides the highest possible standard of education for our children.  Our vision is for children to leave us exceptionally well prepared for life’s journey, wherever that may lead, and is encapsulated in our school motto:  Believe in yourself.


We value the whole child and every child; we encourage children to achieve to their own full potential.  We strive to meet the individual needs of each pupil, to encourage children to believe in themselves and to recognise their strengths.  We develop and nurture a school community spirit in which children are encouraged to care for others and their surroundings. 

Our Aims

We aim, through constantly seeking the highest quality of teaching and learning, to enable our children to:

  • realise their academic potential and to be equipped to be successful in the next stage of their school career
  • be socially mature; demonstrating a high degree of emotional intelligence, empathy, understanding, tolerance and engagement with society
  • possess effective life-long skills: resilience, resourcefulness and respect
  • develop appreciation and love of life: aesthetically, physically and spirituall


Strategic Direction, Priorities, Plan for Improvement

With constant reference to the school’s view and aims, the Governing Body agrees the implementation of its strategic plan in practice via the School Development Plan, which sets the plans for improvement and priorities for focus.


Part of the Governing Body’s core strategic function is to hold the headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school, its pupils and staff and to oversee the financial performance of the school, making sure its money is well spent.  The following framework outlines how the Governing Body will seek to fulfil these functions.
