Welcome to Kirkstead Junior Academy
At Kirkstead Junior Academy our School Motto is, ‘Creating respectful, resourceful and responsible individuals’ and this is an integral part of our vision and ethos. We feel very strongly that school is a partnership between children, parents, teachers and governors and that by working together we can motivate children to succeed in all areas of their development. Therefore, our school motto captures this aspiration:
Every decision we make for the school is to ensure everyone in school is happy, confident and that the opportunities that are provided for them are relevant to their needs both now and for the future. This includes adults as well as the children.
Through our engaging curriculum, we ensure that children can foster a passion for learning and curiosity that will help to develop high aspirations and a lifetime of memories. We believe in ensuring that children receive a well-rounded curriculum, where individual talents can be spotted and nurtured to ensure that all children experience success and reach their full potential.
Our curriculum is designed to build on children’s previous knowledge and experience, close liaison between class teachers and across the Family of Schools, ensures that relevant information is passed on to assist this process. We provide a rich curriculum where all subjects are well planned and resourced to develop the pupil’s enjoyment and commitment to learning. We encourage the best possible progress and highest attainment for all pupils, building on strengths, interests and experiences, developing the child’s confidence in their capacity to learn and work independently and collaboratively, equipping children with essential skills of English, Mathematics and Computing and promoting enquiring minds and the capacity to think rationally.
The school has a dedicated team that works hard to reach high standards in everything we do and this is further embedded through our relationships with parents, the local community and the other schools in Pinxton and the Flying High Trust. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and regard you as an active partner in your child's education and value your interest and support.
We hope that this website will give you as much information as possible about our school, the staff and the many activities that our children enjoy through our curriculum and our extra-curricular activities that you need. If you'd like to arrange a visit, then please do this through the school office.
