Believe, Succeed, Achieve

At Northern Junior School we encourage our children to develop a lifelong love of learning so they are confident, motivated pupils who are open minded, positive learners who believe, succeed and achieve.

We want to inspire children to become life-long learners by fostering an open-minded, positive attitude towards the world, its people, their history and cultures. We want our children to embrace the future by being confident with new technology and able to take on new challenges confidently and positively. We want pupils to feel good about themselves, think about and show respect for others and become responsible, hardworking citizens of the future.

Our school will endeavour to create a dynamic learning environment for children where they can be happy, value themselves and others, grow in confidence, know success and gain knowledge and skills for the world of today and tomorrow. We will strive for the fullest development of each child in all areas of school life, social, moral, intellectual, physical, spiritual and emotional.  We believe that children who feel happy and believe in themselves can succeed and achieve.


At the Northern Federation we aim to:

Inspire children so that they aspire to be the very best they can be.

Provide a caring happy, safe environment, so that everyone feels part of a school community where they are valued and their contributions, and views are respected.

Foster independence by giving children opportunities to plan and complete their own work, as well as encourage them to work with and learn from others.

Foster the development of a “Growth Mindset” so that everyone in our community understands the importance of effort and trying again, of being resilient and not giving up.

Lead through example by having high expectations and setting high standards in all that we do.

Achieve high standards of work and presentation, and develop qualities of perseverance and self-discipline.

Use the curriculum, our school and wider environment to provide a stimulating and supportive learning environment, which will challenge and motivate each child to be able work to the best of his or her ability.

Ensure that learning is exciting, challenging and fun as well as fostering creativity of thought by nurturing our children’s natural curiosity, enthusiasm and interest.
