On behalf of the governing body, staff and children I warmly welcome you to Kitchener Primary School. Kitchener is a large, exciting, dynamic multi ethnic school which celebrates the diversity of the Riverside area of Cardiff. The school is very successful and at the heart of this is an ethos which puts the happiness and wellbeing of children first and foremost. We have a strong work ethic and our fantastic team of dedicated staff strive to offer a curriculum which is interesting and fun and enhanced by regular first hand experiences, enabling everyone to reach their full potential.
Our school is very well resourced with a library, computer suite and interactive white boards in every classroom. We are particularly proud of our Forest School which provides children of all ages with a unique and exciting learning environment. There are a large number of after school clubs that include football, netball and art and craft. Kitchener has a strong musical tradition and all children are invited and encouraged to take part in the numerous performances that the school gives across the city in such venues as the St.David’s Hall and the Wales Millennium Centre.
At Kitchener we strive to work in partnership with parents, carers, and members of the wider school community. Each person has a role to play and everyone is encouraged and supported to play an active part in all aspects of school life.
I hope that you enjoy looking at our website. If you would like to visit the school then I would be delighted to show you around.
Very best wishes
Mrs R H Jackson
Chair of Governors' Welcome
Kitchener Primary school values the education of all of its’ pupils and celebrates the wide range of cultures, languages and religious beliefs that they bring to the school. At the school we want every child to feel special, to feel valued and for their talents and contribution to be recognised and appreciated. Above all we want each child to develop an inquiring mind and a deep interest in learning.
The headteacher and staff work extremely hard to make learning in and outside the classroom enjoyable and challenging. It matters to them that every child has a chance to develop themselves to achieve their full potential through what they learn in the classroom and through their relationships with each other and with their teachers.
At Kitchener, education is not just about classroom learning but about being part of an interdependent world where respect, tolerance and appreciation of the needs and contribution of others as well as themselves is central to the ethos of the school and the community it serves.
It is particularly important that the parents of the diverse community which the school serves understand what the school is seeking to achieve with and for their children. The involvement of the parents on a day-to-day basis in their children’s education and in the major social and cultural events to which the school is party is a vital feature of the life of the school.
