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, Book Club, Musical Theatre, Singing, Drama and Cricket! All children in Year 4 learn a brass instrument and we have a number of specialist music teachers who comes in to school once a week to work with individuals and small groups. Rocksteady are in school each week teaching groups of children to perform as a rock band. The choir sing at many events and venues and our sports teams enjoy great success in local competitions. We have a DT /Cookery /Art room large enough for a whole class and it is well used.
We often need help from parents and would welcome more volunteers to listen to children read, accompany children on trips or to swimming and to help with events.
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. We also work closely with local High Schools to make sure the transition from Y6 to Y7 is smooth. Our children are well prepared and 'secondary ready'!
At Robin Hood Juniors we enjoy excellent technology resources to support learning. We also make the most of our gardens and redeveloped playground area. We are delighted with our Year Three classrooms are spacious and light with room for 'carpet time' just like at KS1. In Autumn 2017 we opened our library which is just fabulous! It is a wonderful space, fully stocked with great books and the children love it.
I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our school.
