Ethos and Aims

Dream, believe, learn, achieve.

At North Walsham Junior, Infant School and Nursery we focus on the following aims:

  • Each child recognised as an individual so our teaching specifically targets their learning needs, develops their social skills and nurtures their talents
  • A focus on literacy so every child will become an avid reader, a fluent writer and a confident speaker
  • A focus on mathematics so every child will become a confident, skillful mathematician
  • Thinking and questioning at the heart of our curriculum so that children are encouraged to explore, enquire and extend their learning by talking
  • Strong values, developing in every child resilience, creativity, politeness, respect and motivation to succeed
  • Outstanding teaching so that every child learns new things every day and is motivated to attend school
  • An exciting, stimulating curriculum taught inside and outdoors
  • A calm, purposeful environment in which to learn, with a clear focus on rewarding positive behaviour
  • A coaching culture to support the development of thinking and learning processes

Excellent teaching and learning, combined with a high quality academic curriculum and the highest levels of support and nurture for all pupils, will ensure the highest standards are met.

We help our pupils build independence, character, resilience, leadership skills and a love of learning. Our culture is focused on promoting excellence; supporting our pupils to achieve academic success and developing aspirational children with bright futures ahead.

We want to make sure that every child in our school is happy, safe and protected from harm. This means we will always work to protect children from maltreatment and ensure they grow up in circumstances consistent with the provision of safe and effective care. It is our legal duty to refer our concerns to other services, if we suspect a child is being harmed in any way.

We have a Safeguarding Policy which sets out our legal responsibility to safeguard and promote the welfare of all children. We will work pro-actively with others, in order to ensure a child's wellbeing.  Click here for more information about keeping children safe from harm.

We expect our parents to support us in achieving our aims for their children. This document sets out our Parent Code of Conduct.
