Vision and Aims

Everyone is valued at Flixton Junior School. We believe in developing all members of our school community.

FJS should be a place which is safe and supportive, where everyone feels valued. There should be an environment of respect between all those who are a part of the school community: children, staff, parents and governors. The curriculum that our children experience should be challenging, positive and varied.

Children should be excited about their learning. They should be engaged in a creative curriculum, within a bright and stimulating environment. The activities and learning they face should encourage them to take calculated risks, experience and accept failure and success, and show resilience and adaptability. We should build their ability to solve the problems they face, both curricular and in their social development, by encouraging thinking around the problem and taking positive steps to find a solution.

Everything they do and are asked to do should have a purpose and a meaning to them, and be aimed at helping them reach their potential and become life long learners, with a thirst for knowledge and self improvement. School should be an adventure, where every child has the opportunity to discover their talents and have experiences that would otherwise not be available to them. It is a place that teaches tolerance, respect, empathy, self discipline and self control. When children leave us, they should leave as confident, articulate, happy young adults, able to play a positive role in society. We aim for our children to be citizens for the future. This school does not discriminate on grounds of disability, race or gender. We embrace an equal opportunities policy.
