Welcome to Our School
As I welcome you to our website, which will give you a flavour of school life, I also invite you to visit and see for yourselves all the exciting learning opportunities that our children experience everyday. Our school values of respect, resilience, courage, compassion, spirit and happiness underpin all we do and the high expectations we set for ourselves are reflected in our school motto of 'Aim High - Be the best you can be!'
We also know that the best learning takes place as a result of a close partnership between school and home and I look forward to joining you and your family in supporting your child as they continue on their journey through school.
With best wishes,
Vision & Ethos
Longlevens Junior School is a place where every member of our community is valued and respected. At LJS we aim to:
- Create a vibrant, inclusive and safe learning environment (both inside and out of the classroom) where children and staff develop their skills and love of learning.
- Have the highest expectations in all we do and celebrate the achievements of everything and everyone.
- Enable children to discover and develop their unique talents and encourage a resilient and 'can do attitude'.
- Encourage an atmosphere of mutual respect and celebrate the rich and diverse world in which we live.
- Ensure children have the opportunities to explore, investigate and learn through a Creative Curriculum that brings the real world into the classroom.
- Have fun!
Coherence. Consistency. Curiosity. Challenge.
At Longlevens Junior School we continually reflect on our teaching practice to ensure that all our children benefit from a curriculum that is rigorous, coherent and intelligently sequenced; one which builds on what has come before. It is an exciting time in curriculum development and we have drawn upon evidence about how pupils learn and retain knowledge in the long term when designing our curriculum.
