At Leavesden JMI School, a school for children from 3 to 11 years old, we pride ourselves on being an ambitious and forward-thinking school which aims to make a real difference to all of the children who come here.
Following an extensive building project, we now have the capacity to have two classes per year group. Previously being two separate schools which are now fully connected, we have the luxury of two halls, five playgrounds and a vast and spectacular field which facilitates many outdoor learning activities. Investment in our grounds using our Sports Premium Funding means that we now also have a Daily Mile track, a teaching long-jump pit and outdoor gym equipment for our older children. In redesigning the school we have sought to create extra learning spaces as well as ensuring that many of our classrooms, offices and walkways have large windows to let in the natural light.
We consider our greatest strength to be the strong commitment invested by our staff and governors which results in a secure, caring and stimulating environment in which children will be encouraged and inspired to achieve their potential in all aspects of their academic, physical and social development. Our curriculum is designed to uncover the considerable talents and potential in the learners. We strive to deliver a curriculum which brings a sense of creative curiosity that will bring high levels of engagement and lead to deeper longer lasting learning. Our children have opportunities to reflect upon their contributions to our school and wider community, with an aim that we all have a positive impact on the world in which we live. As a consequence, children learn to be empathetic, considerate and respectful members of society. We deliberately provide opportunities for the children to participate in activities that are new to them or that they might not be able to master immediately, in order for them to experience being brave, resilient and courageous learners which will lead to them being ambitious to succeed.
