A Warm Welcome from the Headteacher
Caring, Sharing and Learning Together!
Ready, Respectful, Safe!
Welcome to King's Court First School. We are a small village school in Old Windsor with a caring community. Our school is a first school educating children from 4-9 years old.
At King's Court First School we aim to provide every child with the best possible academic, social and moral education. Our school's ethos is based on care and consideration, encouraging respect for the beliefs, feelings and needs of others. We will provide an environment in which all children are happy and can develop self-awareness and a sense of responsibility, enabling them to respond with informed judgement to the challenges they meet.
We believe that the school's curriculum should provide memorable, creative experiences which are rich in opportunities for high quality learning for every single child. These creative experiences include activities and resources within school and through the wider school curriculum outside of school. Some examples of our rich community links, activities and resources are listed below:
- Working with outside agencies such as Berkshire Maestro's teaching music across key stage 1 and key stage 2: violas and recorders and the Windsor Sports partnership, developing sports skills and competitions with other local schools in Windsor
- Weekly parent visits for early years: stay and play/share a story
- Trips around the rich, historical area: Runnymead, home of the Magna Carta, Windsor Castle and Great Windsor Park
- Strong Royal connections as a school in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead. Celebrations, including Royal weddings, the Platinum Jubilee and the King's Coronation
- Swimming for key stage 2 at Eton College
- Exposure to a range of cultures and charity support: French in key stage 2, celebration of different faiths and supporting charity events, such as, NSPCC and Macmillian cancer
- Quality relationships with parents and the Friends of King's Court First School (Parent/Teacher's Association) with a rich calendar of events, such as, King's Court float at the Old Windsor Carnival, Spring Fayre and themed fund raisers for Easter and Christmas
- Expansive school site with 3 playgrounds for early years, key stage 1 and key stage 2. We have enriching resources at school, including the pond, an art studio and a music room
- Valuing the children as 'Little Leaders' through the School Council, Green Team, Librarians, Mental Health Champions and Sports Leaders

The children are the center of everything we do.
We believe that children should develop mastery skills across the curriculum and aspire to follow their dreams! We aspire to develop our children's confidence to ask questions and begin to decide what they want to achieve in their careers, whether they want to be historians, geographers, mathematicians or artists, or quite likely, roles that haven't yet been invented! We aim to create life-long learners in our children so they can give the best contribution to society.
We are a school which has much to celebrate, not least our picturesque grounds which provide extensive educational opportunities for our school community. Our children are encouraged to take pride in this favoured setting and to play their part in maintaining its richness. As a community school, we have strong and supportive school/parent working partnerships, where our collective aim is for the children to be 'happy coming into school and happy going home.' Our governors strategically lead and drive our leadership goals and develop our school values and creative curriculum.
