Welcome to Our School
This should provide you with information about our school and give you a flavour of what we have to offer.
We are a thriving, oversubscribed, school which prides itself on its very high level of inclusion and a very positive and caring atmosphere for learning.
We have excellent staff and facilities and we always strive to build upon this. We believe in taking every opportunity of consulting with the children and involving yourselves to see what would best benefit the children and their education.
Yet again, we are delighted with Ofsted’s assessment of us in March 2014.
These are some of the key points:
· The children are “unfailingly polite and impeccably behaved in the building, in assembly and on the playground”
· The achievement of children is good. Children with disabilities and special educational needs are well supported and make good progress. Those who speak English as an additional language reach standards that are above average.
· The quality of teaching is good with the teachers having high expectations. The children work with enthusiasm due to the dynamic and stimulating teaching.
· Leadership and Management are good. There is a very clear and comprehensive plan of action, with a strong leadership team and Governing Body having the ambition, drive and determination to become an outstanding school.
Pound Hill Junior has always focussed upon the child as an individual. We show that we care for each and every child and as a consequence, we have high achieving children. We always have a large proportion of children coming back to visit, to carry out work experience, or to ask for help and advice long after they have officially left.
I am proud of our children and staff and Ofsted has clearly recognised that our ‘Good’ school has many ‘Outstanding’ elements.
