NEW UPDATES REGARDING OUR RETURN IN SEPTEMBER
Update - 20th October 2020
 
Pound Hill Junior School is always striving to keep our children and our community safe and constantly review policies and procedures to minimise risk.
 
We are following Government guidelines that say masks are not needed within primary school classrooms and as a school we believe that this is correct both in terms of minimising transmission risk and the negative impact this may have on younger children's experiences in our school.
 
We would like to remind you of ways that you can keep your family and community safe.
  • Children and adults to enter the school site only for the staggered drop off and pick up times
  • only one adult per family on the school site
  • Adults to keep to a 2m social distance
  • Everyone to wear a face covering to reduce transmission risk on the journey to and from school
The school is reviewing the situation for after half term and would like take the opportunity to state that the procedures may change to require parents to adhere to the above points and failure to do so may result in not being allowed onto the school site.
 
 


T
he governors, staff, children and I would like to welcome you to our school website. We are all extremely proud of our school and hope that you find a flavour of who we are in these pages.

We are a school that believes in being positive both towards each other and towards ourselves. We all take pride in our appearance, attitude to learning and how we strive to do the best we can. Across the school and in everything we do there is a culture of self-improvement and celebration of effort which allows everyone to succeed. We ensure that this success is celebrated both privately in books and publically in assemblies.

Everyone has ownership of their education and each child drives their own learning forward whilst being part of a supportive and supported class who help each other through team work and discussion.

Our curriculum promotes enquiry and challenge giving all pupils opportunities to broaden and deepen their understanding and skills in both new areas and different situations. This linking of themes and knowledge strengthens understanding and gives children courage to think deeply and not just around a single concept.

We have a strong focus on basic skills and know that by supporting children to develop these they can use them to understand more challenging concepts. The children are supported to use precise and technical vocabulary to explain what they have done and this helps them apply knowledge in a wider variety of situations. We know that every child has the capacity to learn, make progress and succeed in all of their learning.

Pound Hill Junior School remains committed to a broad education and strongly believes that good teaching and learning across all the subjects will ensure outcomes that match ours, yours and above all the child’s own aspirations.

YEAR 3 Video

Today we had a really lovely video sent in from a year 3 parent. Lots of the children wanted to take part and make there own adaptation of the staff apple video (while of course complying with social distancing). 

Mr White loved it and wanted to say thank you !

****  Video is in link at the bottom ****

 

Dear Mums, Dads, Carers, Brothers, Sisters, dogs, cows, horses and above all children,

That is the best and most wonderful 5minutes and 50seconds I have spent since we went into lockdown. In fact, it's the best thing I've seen for a very long time. We miss you too and can't wait until we all get back to school properly. 

You did a brilliant job with the video and I'm still smiling. No... that wasn't a tear in my eye. Definitely not.

Thank you to everyone involved in making and starring in the video - you are all amazing.

Take care and see you soon.

Mr White
