Joydens Wood Junior School


On behalf of the children, staff, and governors, I welcome you to Joydens Wood Junior School.  We aim to develop every child into an independent, resilient, determined, active learner who enjoys school and has the desire to be a lifelong learner.

We hope that our website will give you a good flavour of life at JWJS. Our children are rightly proud of their school and achievements and we are always aiming ever higher to ensure the best for every child. We aim to nurture children’s talents and abilities, providing opportunities for each child to reach their full potential and be happy, confident, resilient and enthusiastic learners. We are a welcoming, inclusive school and we understand the importance of working in partnership with parents: we encourage parental involvement in children’s learning, as well as fostering opportunities for the children themselves to be actively involved in their own learning.

Through nurturing our children we aim to provide them with secure foundations for life, so that they leave JWJS with an excellent all round education and a love of learning. We ensure that every child is treated as an individual, their gifts and talents are recognised and their achievements celebrated.

As the Headteacher at JWJS, I am privileged to be leading this school and to be working with such a motivated and talented group of staff and governors. ​

If you would like to know more about our school, you are very welcome to come and visit. The children of JWJS very much enjoy talking about and sharing their achievements and our successes.

Mrs Jacqueline Watson
