Welcome to the website of Urmston Junior School.
STOP THE PRESS – Urmston Junior School has gone viral…
What a day…we only went and held the national ‘World Book Day’ live broadcast over the internet; had Frank Lampard come a visit to discuss being an author; Match of the Day Kickabout filmed in school and CBBC News-round went out live from our library starring our very own children. WOW!
We are extremely proud of our children, their enthusiasm for reading and their behaviour in front of the whole nation…well done kids!
November 2013 – We only had ‘Dick and Dom’ from CBBC come and talk to UJS about reading skills and their new book…!!!
URMSTON JUNIOR SCHOOL VISION
At UJS everyone is valued. We foster a safe and caring environment helping children to develop as independent learners; create positive attitudes and thoughtful values relating to themselves and others. We pride ourselves on our positive school ethos in developing happy and well-rounded young adults.
We work together to educate each child by developing inquisitiveness and a passion for learning through a lively, challenging and innovative curriculum.
We are committed to providing this through our school objectives:
To provide high quality learning opportunities which meet the needs of all.
To encourage and support the self-esteem of the children and respect for the belongings, efforts, strengths and weaknesses of others.
To promote the equality and respect for identity, characteristics and background of others both locally and globally.
To create a disciplined school environment in which children reach their full potential.
To allow each pupil to receive a curriculum entitlement that is broad, balanced and relevant, in an atmosphere conducive to independent learning.
To collaborate with parents to nurture each child academically, personally and socially.
To promote links with our school and enhance wider community involvement.
To ensure high-quality leadership and organization.
Having served the residential community of Urmston for over 100 years, Urmston Junior School shares the same site as Urmston Infant School and Urmston Grammar School. Good links exist with both of these schools, as well as with other primary and secondary schools in the local area.
Our pupils enjoy school and demonstrate this through their attendance, consistently good behaviour and their positive attitudes to learning. They are eager to learn and work and play well together (Ofsted, 2013). Social, moral, spiritual and cultural education and the wider curriculum for the pupils are good (Ofsted, 2013).
Our website contains information regarding different areas of school life which is intended to be of use to families of pupils currently attending the school as well as new families.
