Anston Park Junior School


Vision Statement

At Anston Park Junior School learning is at the heart of everything we do for both the pupils and staff. We are a fully inclusive school and believe our pupils deserve the right to an ambitious, challenging, inspiring and creative curriculum that encourages our children to be lifelong learners. The curriculum we deliver is broad and balanced. It allows children to cover their learning in depth and to build on their knowledge and skills, whatever their starting point, to enable them to be successful. We have high aspirations for all our pupils and believe every one of them can achieve.

To help us respond to the needs of our community, we have developed four key drivers which are closely linked to our school vision and aims. These drivers are the golden threads that permeate all aspects of our curriculum to enable our children to be well-rounded, successful individuals
