West Blatchington Junior School is vibrant and forward thinking, where children are valued and educated in a caring community. We have a clear vision statement that outlines our expectations and beliefs.

We will offer children a Primary Curriculum that is relevant, purposeful and challenging and where skills can be built on first-hand experience and appropriate opportunities are offered to all children. The Staff work as a team who follow a curriculum framework, where work is planned together, in order to achieve continuity and progression. We are committed to keeping you informed at regular intervals of your child's progress academically and socially. Our work targets for your child will be clear and challenging.

We encourage a quiet and purposeful learning environment with very clear learning objectives. Children will be encouraged to be independent, to question, to discuss issues and make decisions. They will work with their whole class, with a small group and individually. Tasks will be offered which are challenging and exciting. As the children move through the school, they will build on these tasks according to their age and ability. Only last year we achieved our first level 6 mathematics SATs result one of the few schools to achieve this in the Brighton and Hove area.

All the staff have high expectations and we are constantly striving for excellence in all subjects. The staff has a shared sense of purpose, which is reflected in their commitment to hard work. We have a clear four year improvement plan (which can be made available on request) which the whole school is working towards and will ensure the continued raising of achievement and attainment in this school. We have a staff development programme that is aimed at continually improving the provision for your child and the quality of teaching in classrooms.

Music at our school

Staff, children, parents and governors will work together for the benefit of the children's learning and for the whole school community. It is expected that all infant and junior pupils and staff will work together during the year in order to enable the transfer from one school to another, to be smooth. Year 6 pupils should expect at least one visit to their secondary school and for the schools to liase at regular intervals to ensure a smooth transition.

We expect children to behave in a way that shows respect toward others and the environment. Our Behaviour Policy is very clear about our expectations and procedures.

The School offers a wide variety of extra-curricula activities and children are encouraged to take part. We also have residential visits for years 5 & 6. Details of this visit are found in the brochure. During the year all children will go on day visits that we link to the curriculum framework.

I am committed to taking the School forward in its pursuit of excellence and I am constantly looking for ways to raise attainment in all subjects. It is a developing and exciting school and all the staff are enthusiastic and positive. Your child's education and welfare is of utmost importance and lies at the centre of everything that we do. We will make a difference.

Each term we are working on whole school curricular targets for Literacy and Numeracy.

In Literacy the whole school target focuses on improving pupils’ abilities to interpret and understand a range of texts, including the ability to infer, deduce and evaluate ideas and themes presented in texts.

They progress from being asked to evaluate the usefulness of information and justifying views using evidence from the text, through identifying and interpreting the use of expressive, descriptive and figurative language in prose and poetry, critically comparing how different sources treat the same information, to using deduction and inference to explain how the atmosphere is created in a text and what prompted characters’ actions.

Summer 07 Literacy Targets

In Numeracy we are aiming to improve knowledge, understanding and application of position and properties of number. The targets are progressively more challenging for each year group and are grouped in three levels: those that all should achieve, those for most pupils in the year group and ones that only some will find possible. All levels have success criteria so that children will know whether they have achived the goals. Children have these displayed in their classrooms and parents can access these through following this link.
