Head Teacher Welcome
It is with immense pleasure that I extend a warm welcome to you all as we embark on a journey of learning, growth, and achievement at Killisick Junior School. Here, we believe in fostering a spirit of excellence that resonates throughout the year.
Our mission is a simple yet ambitious one: to be the best school we can possibly be. This mission drives us to continuously seek excellence in every aspect of education and personal development. We are committed to nurturing an environment where individuals feel happy, safe, respected, and valued.
At the core of our vision is inclusivity. We are proud to be an inclusive school, embracing the diversity of our students and their unique qualities. We hold high expectations for everyone who passes through our doors, from students to staff, and we celebrate each achievement, no matter how big or small.
Our school values – respect, pride, confidence, responsibility, aspiration, perseverance, creativity, and enjoyment – serve as guiding principles that shape our daily interactions and experiences. These values empower us to create a positive and supportive learning environment that encourages each child to reach their full potential.
Our commitment to excellence and dedication to hard work have been recognized in our most recent OFSTED inspection, where we were judged a good school in all areas. The inspectors noted that Killisick is a happy school, an ambitious and thriving family, and a place where pupils are well-prepared for their future endeavours.
As we embark on this exciting journey together, I invite you to actively engage with your child's education, be an integral part of our school community, and join us in celebrating the successes and accomplishments of our wonderful students.
Thank you for choosing Killisick Junior School. We look forward to a year filled with growth, discovery, and achievement, and we are excited to share this journey with you.
