Head Teacher’s Welcome

“The mere imparting of information is not education.”  Carter G Woodson

Welcome to Wensum Junior School.  Our school is on a very exciting journey to achieve the highest standards of learning through engagement, excitement and enrichment. We became an academy in February 2015 joining a small group of schools through the Evolution Academy Trust.  I joined the team in June of that year.

Following a consultation with parents, children and staff during the summer term we were able to rewrite our aims and vales which have shaped our vision for learning here at Wensum.  There was unanimous agreement that children need to be happy, healthy and safe before they can learn so we reshaped our pastoral team and curriculum to support this.  Our core learner values of independence, team work,  resilience, problem solving, creative thinking and perseverance are a strong focus in school and we place great importance on them throughout the work we do. We are working on developing a rich and varied curriculum based around learning through REAL projects, capturing children’s interests and intrigue and using it to shape powerful learning that really matters.

We are proud to be on a rapid uphill journey with all members of the school community working together to achieve exceptional outcomes for all our children.  If you would like to come and see us at work please do not hesitate to contact us via the school office.
