Our vision for Robin Hood Junior School is for our children to leave us literate and numerate; hardworking; able to communicate; brave and compassionate. We work hard to provide a creative and challenging curriculum in order to build children’s skills, confidence and self-esteem. Every child and every adult is valued and developed and we are committed to safeguarding. Our parents and governors are supportive and fully involved in school life.
We use the Cornerstones’ Curriculum as the basis for our learning. We aim to meet the needs of individual pupils through the delivery of broad, balanced, engaging and differentiated learning opportunities designed to provide the right level of challenge. We are committed to assessment for learning, and our marking and feedback identifies progress and achievement and moves children on to their next step. We are keen to help you support your child’s learning and offer a range of ways to do this.
Robin Hood Juniors believes in a broad and balanced curriculum for all our pupils. Our clubs vary depending on the time of year and availability of coaches and staff but have included: Cookery, Football, Drama and Tag Rugby! All children in Year 4 learn a brass instrument and we have a guitar teacher who comes in to school once a week to work with individuals and small groups. The choir sing at many events and venues and our sports teams enjoy great success in local competitions.
We have excellent links with Robin Hood Infant School. We meet termly and try to plan many events and activities together. Transition for our prospective Year Three children is planned carefully and a number of visits are made before they join us, to make the move as smooth as possible.
At Robin Hood Juniors we enjoy excellent technology resources to support learning with either ipads or Chromebooks in every classroom. We also make the most of our gardens and playground area. There is a plan to remove the huts and build new classrooms for Year Three this year – we are holding our breath and crossing our fingers! After this we will be able to redevelop the playground.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our school.
