I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Newhall Community Junior School. It is a joy to work with the children and families of this community. This website aims to present parents/carers, pupils, governors and guests with up-to-date information about the school, events and activities.
The school caters for the pupils of Newhall and the surrounding areas. We are a junior school, ranging in pupil age from 7 – 11 years old. Our policies and practices are informed by Derbyshire County Council and educational research; ratified by our board of Governors. The governing board represents the wider community, local community, parents and staff.
We aim to ensure that ALL pupils are engaged and challenged in their learning, following our N.C.J.S pedagogy. Our aim is to encourage independent learning, ready for secondary school. We endeavour to cater for those who require additional support in academic, social and physical areas; always placing the child at the centre of every decision made. We strive to ensure that pupils enjoy their time at school, catering for the 'whole child'.
A significant number of pupils join us in Year 3 from Newhall Infant School, which is situated on the same campus, however the catchment area for the school extends to other localities. As the school also shares the campus with the William Allitt Secondary School, many pupils move onto their secondary education there.
We hope that you find the information you are looking for. Please feel free to contact the school directly with any queries you may have.
Thank you for visiting!
Kind regards, James Goodman- Headteacher
