Every child at Merton Junior School is recognised as a unique individual. We celebrate and welcome differences within our school community. The ability to learn is underpinned by the teaching of skills, knowledge, concepts and values. We aim to provide exciting opportunities to engage learning and believe that all children should be actively involved and challenged within their learning.
Within our curriculum we recognise that the children need to value themselves whilst developing aspirations for their future and for their community. We are passionate that all children realise that it is a big and wonderful world out there and when they leave us they are ready for the next chapter of their journey.
In recognising the development of the whole child, the physical, mental and emotional wellbeing of the children is supported across the school to ensure that they are in a positive mind-set to be able to access the curriculum. The school has various systems, in and out of the classroom, which support the emotional and mental well-being of children and signposts parents to external support when necessary, seeking the involvement of a range of agencies. Our staff are particularly warm and nurturing; relationships across the school are exceptionally strong.
