An introduction from Miss Gail Corbishley, Chair of the Governing Body
Newlaithes Junior School is open to all children aged 7 – 11 years. As we currently have 235 children on roll, we are one of the largest junior schools in the county. Over many years, our school has built up a strong reputation for high standards and excellence, reflected in our last Ofsted inspected in May 2016 where we were graded as a ‘good’ school with these qualities being recognised, We were delighted to receive a number of outstanding elements within this inspection, including our teaching and leadership. We are now focused upon delivering outstanding levels of performance to provide your child with the very best education available.
The school itself opened in 1963 as a purpose built eight class school for 220 children. Since then developments have included a purpose built ICT suite (significantly upgraded in 2010/11), Highly valued small group and individual teaching areas, interactive whiteboards in every class and some splendid outdoor learning facilities.
Our headteacher, Mr Andrew Cannon, staff and governors will continue to develop delightful and purposeful learning experiences for your child to enjoy. We will supply your child with the highest quality education, which will include hard work, excitement and fun. Backed by our recent inspection, we believe Newlaithes Junior School to have many strengths including our: * teaching and leadership; *use of computers; *partnerships with parents and the community; *our care, guidance and support of all children, including children with special needs; *our effectiveness in developing children’s attitudes to work and towards others; and finally *the excellent standards of behaviour within school. We offer the very best education for your child and you can be assured of outstanding progress and learning as your child continues through our school.
The Governing Body, working together with the headteacher, staff and parents, is very enthusiastic for the future of the school and children, we are all working hard to make sure the school continues to build upon its strengths and strives hard to ensure the very best outcomes for all children. We are all united in giving your child the very best education.
