Welcome to Alumwell Junior School.
We are very proud of Alumwell Junior School and it’s place in the local community. Alumwell is a very special place to come to school and work. Our school motto is:
‘Excellence and Enjoyment for Everyone'
and this applies to our pupils, staff, parents, governors and dogs.
We place a strong emphasis on challenging and supporting every pupil to achieve excellence. We place equal importance on safeguarding and caring for the welfare of your children.
In 2018 Ofsted visited our school and described us as a good school. 'Pupils are polite, sensible, responsible and caring. They show high levels of respect for adults and each other. In lessons, pupils are eager to learn, participate and suceed. They sensibly appraoch all aspects of learning with enthusiasm.' Ofsted report January 2018.
We pride ourselves in being able to offer a wide range of extra curricular activities including boys and girls football, tag rugby, eCadets, running, multisports, gardening, street dance, table tennis and Lego club to name but a few!
We are also very fortunate to have our own trained School Animal Therapy dogs Dougie and Percy. They are much loved members of the school community and integral to the life and harmony of the school.
Alumwell is a member of the 'Cadmus Family of Schools'. Cadmus is a federation of local schools with a shared belief and vision - 'working together to ensure success' and to that end we share the core values of high standards and expectations. We offer broad, balanced and exciting curriculums and we work alongside our communities to unlock the potential of all pupils.
All staff at Alumwell look forward to working alongside pupils and their families to deliver the vision of “Excellence and Enjoyment for Everyone”, which is at the heart of everything we do at school. We endeavour to ensure that your child is provided with excellent opportunities both inside and outside the classroom.
We welcome visits so that you can see us in action and we can answer any questions that you may have.
