Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Ruskin Junior School!

As Headteacher here at Ruskin, I would like to extend you the warmest of welcomes. Ruskin Junior School is a large, vibrant, and friendly junior school where our core beliefs centre around instilling a love of and a passion for learning . We believe in teaching skills, sharing knowledge and creating an environment from which special memories and moments can be taken away and cherished for a lifetime. Our curriculum is broad and balanced, with a  ‘Big Idea’ at its core. Aspects of the curriculum such as English and science can be drawn from a central concept which is designed to spark the passion to learn, instill curiosity and evoke the will to enquire. Our school’s value changes termly and is a constant thread that runs through the curriculum, binding our ethos to what happens in the classroom; values are designed to instill a strong sense of responsibility and citizenship, essential qualities in preparing our fledgling generation for the future. We have a clear understanding of the crucial role parents and family play in their child's education and subsequently are always looking to forge stronger links between home and school: the success of our school is dependent upon the strength of the bonds we build with everyone in the school community.

The site is very well resourced, with a forest school area, large grass playing field, sprung floor dance studio, stage with full lighting facilities, outside play-barn and a 4G football pitch. We are extremely proud of our resources and we do our utmost to ensure they are accessible to all children as often as possible.

This website is designed to be a one-stop-shop for existing parents and children, for those moving up from the infants and for parents and children looking to join us at a different stage in the school journey. However, the best way to experience the Ruskin vision is to arrange a visit via the school office - you can then see first hand what we have to offer.

Kind regards
