I am very pleased to welcome you to Hadleigh Junior School's website. I encourage you to explore the pages of this site so that you can gain further insight into life at our school where supportive, caring staff enable pupils to enjoy a broad curriculum full of rich, creative learning opportunities that will prepare them to be happy, caring and driven citizens of the future. Experiences, growth mind-set and mastery underpin our ethos and vision for the whole school community.
Character development is a very important aspect of life at Hadleigh Junior School. Our Core Values of Challenge, Determination, Resilience and Independence are evident in all aspects of school life. Having such strong values supports our pupils to develop a growth mind-set, high standards of behaviour and adaptability that will stand them in good stead as they progress through their education and onto future employment.
We aim to provide an environment where pupils feel safe, supported and encouraged to achieve fully, becoming lifelong learners.
We recognise parents and carers play a vital role in aiding children to make personal and academic progress, and so we develop effective home-school partnerships through communication, workshops, information meetings and targeted engagement projects.
We are committed to collaborating with the wider school community and the rich local area is central to our creative curriculum. Our dedicated professionals skilfully incorporate the resources on our doorstep into purposeful, engaging learning, both within and outside of our classrooms.
Our learning, social and moral links include: Hadleigh Castle, Hadleigh Park (London 2012 mountain bike venue), Belfairs Woods, local businesses, The Salvation Army Training Centre and farm as well as local religious groups to name a few. Our development in this area was strengthened when we joined Challenger Multi Academy Trust in March 2017 (http://www.challengermultiacademytrust.org).
To fully experience what our school has to offer we recommend a guided visit, by prior arrangement, enabling you to witness our core values and community minded ethos first hand.
We look forward to welcoming you,
Mr. Glenn Moore
