Newhall Community Junior School

Our mission is to give each child the opportunity to develop to their full potential through a broad and balanced curriculum. To develop lively enquiring minds, and to have an understanding and appreciation of their place in today's society. To develop the wholeness of every child, and to enable them to make informed caring decisions and an appreciation of their uniqueness as an individual.

We aim to achieve this by fostering a caring family environment. An environment in which children feel safe, secure and confident. Children learn through first hand experiences, making choices and sharing responsibilities. It is the role of all staff to provide the support and care necessary to achieve this.

If you have any suggestions for our site, please contact our website co-ordinator, Mr J Russell.


The school is a County co-educational junior school, receiving children at age 7+, and transferring them at the age of 11+ to the secondary level of education. The maximum number of admissions in any one year group is 90.


The school is organised as follows:


Upper School Year 6 3 classes
  Year 5 3 classes
Lower School Year 4 3 classes
  Year 3 3 classes


Each year is grouped by ability to ensure the individual needs of each child are met.


Children in the Junior School follow work set by the National Curriculum at Key Stage 2.


General Curriculum Aims


We aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for our children. The School Curriculum is organised in agreement with the requirements of the National Curriculum.


The core subjects are... English, Mathematics and Science.


Foundation subjects are... History, Geography, Technology, Music, Art, P.E., R.E. and P.S.E.


Foundation Subjects


We are concerned that our children experience as wide a learning process as possible. This includes social and personal education, environmental education and ecological education as well as the full range of individual foundation subjects that are presently part of the National Curriculum.


The school timetable is divided into subject areas following the structure of the N.C. so that the children can experience an in-depth approach to the various disciplines. However, we consider it important to stress cross curricular links where possible and some work takes place through mini themes linking areas together.


The Learning Environment


Within each ability grouped class, children will work in smaller ability groups for much of Mathematics, Science, English, Technology, History and Geography. Some aspects of Games are also graded. The emphasis that the N.C. places upon individual attainment cannot effectively be met by mixed ability groups all the time.


We do believe strongly that it is important for children to work effectively and caringly with all their peers in the class. A lot of activities we present are designed to promote that harmonious environment.


We feel that it is very important to stress the multi-ethnic and anti-sexist demands of our society. Our curriculum seeks not only to present opportunities to debate these issues but also to provide a fundamental learning environment that is unbiased and reflects a wider society than Newhall.


There are a great many club activities open to children at school. These include football, hockey, cricket, needlework, netball, music, drama, art, dance, gymnastics, I.C.T., French, chess, gardening and choir. Clubs are held after school and at lunchtimes.

We also provide  the opportunity for children to develop their musical skills. In partnership with the South Derbyshire Musical Partnership (based at the William Allitt School) there are lessons for woodwind (clarinet and flute), brass (trombone and trumpet), string (violin), percussion, piano and keyboards.
