Kewaigue School

Enjoying learning and achieving, together


Kewaigue school is a happy, thriving learning environment with successful and talented children and staff. We believe that the key to high achievement and happiness is rooted in the high expectations we have for all our children in all aspects of school life. Learning is at the heart of everything we do, where both children and the rest of our learning community strive to acquire new skills, knowledge and understanding.

By providing a well-structured, creative curriculum and by actively promoting positive behaviors, we aim to ensure all children enjoy learning, delight in achievement, as well as care about and respect each other. We are committed to the social and emotional development of children and value and celebrate the fact that we are all different. We want our school community to feel a sense of pride and ownership in what we achieve together. We are therefore committed to working in partnership with parents, carers and the wider community to provide the best possible learning opportunities for our children.


We hope this site provides you with the information you are looking for. If you would like further information please contact us through the school office, we would be very happy to help.
