A very warm welcome to the St Ives Junior School (SIJS) website.
We are a happy school with a strong sense of T.E.A.M (Together Everyone Achieves More) and collaboration where staff work and learn with children really effectively. We are a committed and exceptionally hardworking team with the aim of making SIJS inspiring: Inspiring people with inspirational opportunities in an inspirational environment.
Our vision statement is ‘Learning together, free to fly’ and our mission statement is ‘to provide high quality teaching and learning to raise the achievement levels for all pupils.’
We actively foster throughout the school a positive can do culture: ‘yet’ is the most important word we have at school and there is a huge difference between saying “I can’t do it.” and “I can’t do it yet.” Resilience is key in learning and in life and we explicitly teach lifelong learning dispositions. ‘Stickability’ really is the super secret of success!
It is always our aim to have as much enjoyment and fun as we possibly when learning so that we create truly memorable learning experiences for pupils which they will remember for years to come.
We are passionate about learning at SIJS and we hope that our website gives you a sense of just how determined we are to ensure that pupils at SIJS get the best possible deal whilst they are in our care.
