Welcome to our school website!

At our school each child is valued and their unique set of skills and talents developed so that they can ‘be the best that they can be’. Our belief is that learning should be exciting and engaging. We want every child to leave our school ready for the next stage in their education and with a real appetite for learning.

We have high aspirations for every child that attends our school and a strong track record of achieving academic success. Equally, we ensure children at Bishop’s Waltham Junior are able to explore their full range of talents and interests.

Alongside a stimulating and varied curriculum, we offer a range of sporting, musical and artistic enrichment activities including successful sports clubs, drama productions and music concerts.

We place great emphasis on developing children’s personal skills and believe in the importance of developing kind, caring and respectful individuals. Behaviour in our school is very good and we offer children high quality care and pastoral support. We have strong systems in place to support children with additional learning needs and have a fully qualified Special Needs Co-ordinator on the staff team.

I am incredibly proud to be the Headteacher of Bishop’s Waltham Junior School and of the children and staff who contribute so much to the life of the school.

If you would like to find out more about the school or to arrange a visit please do not hesitate to contact us.

Darren Campbell

Headteacher

A place where excellence, effort and happiness are valued in equal measure.

Year 5 Update - Friday 14th June 2024

Year 5 Update - Friday 14th June 2024

Year Five have been up to fantastic things since half term. The first week after half term was our Art Week where we focused on ‘Brilliant Buildings’. We learnt how to use vanishing points to draw buildings from different perspectives – including bird’s eye views of cityscapes. We studied the architecture of Richard Rogers, who designed the O2 and Lloyd’s of London building. We then used some of his ideas to junk model our own futuristic schools. We hope you’ll be impressed when you come to out exhibition on Monday 24th June straight after school.

 

This last week has felt a bit more normal. The children have, however, been taking part in some of our standardised tests. They’ve really impressed us with their attitudes – working so hard to show us everything they know.

 

We’ve started a new unit looking at the Ancient Egyptians. The children have looked at different
artefacts to explore what life was like for the Ancient Egyptians. We’re also finishing off our rivers
unit as we compare the River Nile to the Hamble and consider its role in the development of Ancient Egypt.

Well-being Morning - Monday 17th June 2024

WOW, what a morning and no rain!

 

The whole school, split into their house teams, have thoroughly engaged and enjoyed our first well-being morning. All children took part in; a yoga session, an ecotherapy and connecting with nature group, a HITT session and a chat with friends whilst enjoying some healthy fruit. It was brilliant to see everyone enjoying themselves and taking some time for themselves, being outside and rushing around a little less! I hope your children all have something positive to say about the morning. All the staff got involved and had a great time too.

 

Thank you so much for helping your children with their fruit plates, there were so many AMAZING and different ones that it was hard for Mr Campbell to pick a winner. However, a big congratulations to our winners; Scarlett for her hedgehog, Athena for her pineapple face, Jorja for her melon fruit plate and Alice for her orangutan!

 

Well done BWJS!
