Thelwall Junior School has a deeply caring and totally committed staff who take pride in perpetuating the best values associated with education. We are an inclusive school and welcome pupils irrespective of race, religion or cultural beliefs. We are very conscious that each child goes through the junior stage of schooling only once and so we aim to ensure that every pupil works to the full extent of his or her mental and physical ability whilst attending this school. We believe that the full potential of each pupil is best realised by working within a well disciplined and clearly structured framework and in a calm, happy atmosphere free from distraction or stress.
Our principal aim is twofold. Firstly, to provide our pupils with sound teaching in the basic processes of reading, writing, maths, science and ICT, thus ensuring that they acquire the vital knowledge and skills which will enable them to cope more easily with the wider demands of the National Curriculum. Secondly, to provide pupils with essential skills for life, such as communication, enquiry and problem solving, creative thinking, working with others, empathy and social skills.
While we pride ourselves on our pupils’ academic achievements we are also proud of our reputation for providing a wide range of extra curricular activities. We want our pupils to experience a rich and varied school life and find excellence, enjoyment and interest in creative and sporting activities of many kinds.
Every school has its own ethos - that particular quality which, although difficult to define, permeates the corporate life of the school. Staff and Governors firmly believe that ‘every child matters’ and deserves an equal opportunity to succeed whilst being a pupil at this school. Professional standards, commitment and genuine care and concern, linked with good humour, are the hallmarks of Thelwall Community Junior School.
