Strategic Plan 2021 - 2024

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 to ensure our children are exceptionally well prepared for the next steps in their lives.  We aim to provide them with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful, enthusiastic learners and responsible individuals.  We will do this by providing a positive, safe and stimulating environment where all are included and achievements are celebrated.

We aim to achieve our vision through our values ABC

Attainment for All 

Through providing the highest quality of teaching and learning we enable children to realise their academic, physical and spiritual potential.


Through our motto, ‘Believe in Yourself’, we help our children to become socially mature, encouraging empathy and understanding of others and resilience and resourcefulness in themselves.


Through our community we develop a sense of belonging, engagement with society and respect for others and the environment.


Strategic Direction, Priorities, Plan for Improvement

With constant reference to the school’s vision and values, 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.
