Vision Statement

At Nevill Road Junior School we are a Team

Together Everyone Achieves More

Nevill Road Juniors is a vibrant school where individuality is respected and celebrated. Our happy and caring environment shows that learning and children are at the heart of everything we do. We work closely with the Infant School to build upon the key skills which have already been taught. A range of learning opportunities are provided for children both inside and outside of the classroom as well as through extracurricular activities.

Our school is an inclusive and nurturing environment where all aim high, achieve well and develop self confidence.  Resilience and a love of learning, including positive values and beliefs, cooperation and team work, a sense of community and caring attitudes towards others underpin all our work in school.

We provide an exciting, challenging and inspirational setting where children become independent, creative thinkers who are reflective, always striving to extend their learning.

We aim to be at the forefront of educational best practice and our children will benefit from our desire to give them access to the latest technological and educational developments.
