School Vision:

Bishop’s Waltham Junior School will equip our children to be well-rounded individuals who are confident in an ever-changing world. Together, we will be curious learners who can contribute fully in our local and global communities.

We believe that learning is at its most powerful when it nurtures curious minds, fosters independence and provides opportunities for every child to be the best that they can be. We will aim high, striving for everyone to achieve more than they thought possible. Children, staff and parents will work together to create a safe and supportive environment where every child can thrive in their work and play. Our curriculum will help children to grow in confidence and build resilience as we celebrate success and support each other as life-long learners.




Whole School Curriculum Overview

The whole school curriculum has recently been revised and updated incorporating the new National Curriculum which became statutory in September 2014.  The school is using this greater sense of freedom to tailor the curriculum to match the learning needs and interests of the school/pupils.
