Welcome to The Annunciation Catholic Junior School.
As we begin this term, I would very much like to extend a warm welcome to all our pupils and their families, and a special welcome to our Year 3 children who joined us this September. I hope you will be very happy in your new surroundings, and continue to make good progress here at school.
As you know, our children’s mission statement is “Be who God meant you to be, and you will set the world on fire.” All of the adults, who work here at The Annunciation Junior School, strive each day, to ensure our children are safe, happy and excited to learn with us. With God’s guidance and blessing, we walk alongside our children, as they undertake their faith and educational journeys.
We regard these junior years of education as a vital time in your child’s life. Here at The Annunciation Juniors, we provide an exciting, stimulating and caring environment in which your child will learn and develop; spiritually, academically, physically and morally. We aim to successfully prepare our children for secondary school, by developing their independence, confidence and resilience.
At our school, we place a very strong emphasis on relationships and mutual respect. We expect and encourage all members of our community to treat each other with dignity, compassion and tolerance. We behave towards each other with kindness and gentleness and have a focus on praise and encouragement.
We have a strong tradition of very successful partnership working with our parents. We encourage and facilitate effective communication so that together we can promote high standards of behaviour for learning and play. We have a warm and supportive partnership with our parish and local community and are extremely proud of our children and the contribution they make.
We look forward to welcoming you into our school and working with you.
With very good wishes.
