Welcome from our Headteacher
Dear Parents and Carers,
Welcome to the Wallace Fields Junior School website.
You will find this website highly informative and useful and hopefully it will answer many of your questions.
We are proud of our many achievements at Wallace Fields Junior School – of our happy and friendly atmosphere and the hard work and innovation of the staff and pupils. We are a school of excellent achievement in academic results, we make excellent provision for the personal and social development of the children here and we offer a huge range of activities both within a broad and balanced curriculum and through a variety of many different school clubs and events. As Ofsted said in our last report:
“Wallace Fields Junior is a school with an excellent ethos which reflects the school’s commitment to high achievement through challenging work and high expectations. Relationships are excellent and outstanding provision is made by the school for the personal development of pupils.”
All the staff work extremely hard for the good of the school, and the PTA and governors are all highly committed, where we all work relentlessly to ensure the children are stimulated, happy and safe. We believe that an active relationship with parents and carers is essential and so everyone is welcome and we feel the school works fully and harmoniously with the local community. We have the full range of teaching and support staff from the highly experienced to newer teachers, keeping our approaches to life at school, fresh and vibrant whilst remaining perceptive and well informed.
The children usually enjoy amazing residential trips in year 4, 5 and 6 and the school boasts many victories in sport along with success in artistic, musical and competitive events all over the county.
Our results are solid, true and carefully monitored, tracked and reviewed to ensure all children are meeting their potential and find lessons stimulating, challenging and fun. Over the lockdown time, we accommodated the key worker children from late March right through to the very end of summer term, we had Year 6 back in school for a full seven weeks and we implemented transition days for every single year group (including the new Year 3), to wrap up their current year group, meet their new future teachers and hear about some of the expectations and exciting things planned for September 2020.
With the global pandemic we now strive extra hard to make school as normal as possible for the children, with a raft of pastoral support and new intervention groups to help catch up and to close the gap created by the long absence from school. We maintain our positive and happy atmosphere, and we have sustained enthusiasm, creativity and high expectations for learning across the school within a covid-safe environment. Unfortunately, we cannot however have visitors, so if our website does not have the answers you need, please do call our wonderful office team and ask them.
Thanks for looking at our website and whatever your reason for looking I hope you are well and remember to stay safe.
I look forward to seeing you in the future,
Mr Steve Lee
