Welcome to the Juniors at the Towers
We are a small, friendly and caring department of the school for children from Reception to Year 6.
Our child centered vibrant creative curriculum enables each child to grow and develop to their full potential. The children are encouraged to be independent thinkers and learners whilst fostering a love and respect for those around us. Our children are happy learners and are supported by stimulating classrooms and beautiful, natural grounds. We provide children with deep and memorable learning.
We welcome children of all abilities and encourage all the children to play and learn together through whole school activities and house events. We are passionate about developing imaginative and resilient learners and support our children with mindfulness activities every week.
Within our creative curriculum, which includes such subjects as geography, history, RE, we offer a thorough coverage of National curriculum requirements in Literacy, Numeracy and Science. We have the benefit of having specialist teachers for Maths, PE, Swimming, Music and French (from year 3 upwards) who work with the class teachers.
We provide enrichment for the children through trips and visits around our local area. Year 5&6 have residential opportunities teach year. The children are encouraged to take part in outside events such as The South of England Show and Bikeability. The older children have the opportunity to drive the goblin car and all the children learn how to care for animals by looking after our school rabbits.
At lunchtime and after School we have a range of clubs for the children in sport, art and music as well as offering homework club each day and free wrap around care from 7.45am – 5pm.
Our Reception children work and play in a specialist room with everything they need to grow and learn in a supportive environment. They work towards achieving the Early Learning Goals and share their progress with parents through our online Tapestry. The children make full use of our gardens to further enrich their learning environment.
