I spent a long time trying to think how to start this week’s blog as the theme of the first day was one of ‘business’ and ‘visitors’, something I write about quite often. As I couldn’t think of think of an alternative or a change from the obvious, I thought I would start by telling you this! Anyway… back to Monday! The two Year 5 classes took part in the annual K’Nex Challenge and we welcomed Mr Threlfall (Mrs Threlfall’s husband) back to Whitehill to lead on the project. We have deliberately not tweeted photographs from the day as all local schools are set the same challenge in terms of what they have to construct and so we are asked not to give the game away. Equally, I can’t mention in this blog that they had to make a… The pupils worked really well in small teams and both Dr Christie a...

I must start this week’s blog with an apology to the Year 4 Netball Team as I forgot to mention their game against Offley in last week’s offering. A big thank you to Hannah for reminding me and she will soon realise that as I get even older, my memory gets even worse! By the time she is in Year 6, she will probably have to start writing me lists of things I need to write about. It was a very successful ‘friendly’, and saw a few Year 4s representing the school for the first time. I followed the game via twitter as I was in a meeting after school and was very impressed when I saw the final score come through. Mrs Bryan and Mrs Little were exceptionally enthusiastic when they came back to school and are already very excited now about next year’s ‘A’ and ‘B’ Team. Well done to everyone who too...

It’s still dark at 3.00am! I found that out as I was opening up the school on Monday morning in preparation for the Year 6s School Journey to France. Despite my initial tiredness at getting up so early, I soon woke up when the pupils started to arrive, clearly very excited. Miss Hudemann, Mrs Bailey, Mrs Draper, Mr Gentle and Mr Miley had everything organised and everyone knew exactly what they needed to do to ensure the coach (which was very luxurious) got away on time. I wandered around with coffee in hand! Once they had left, I enjoyed a few hours in my office quietly getting on with that ever increasing ‘to do’ list. My desk was very tidy by 7.00am! The updates from France over the whole week were great and it is clear from the photographs on Twitter and the texts I was receiving, the ...

It was another shorter week this week as we reached the final half term break of the school year. Although the staff are in the middle of two INSET days, the pupils finished on Wednesday afternoon after a wonderful afternoon of netball. Once again this week, I ventured out to the school pond with a few Year 4 pupils particularly interested in the wildlife around this area. We looked in the pond to see what we could see and also looked around the pond as there was a lot going on there too. The tadpoles are growing well and it was great to see several newts swimming around between the plants. We were also very excited to see the fish which had been hiding from us last week. All our fish are named and the Year 4s are becoming quite expert in identifying which is which. With no Friday Achiever...

We’ve come to the end of another busy and very productive week for staff and pupils at Whitehill. A week where I have seen some wonderful work across all four year groups and have handed out several, well-deserved, Head’s Awards to classes and individuals. On Monday my assembly was an opportunity to launch our EU Referendum work and give the pupils an overview of the key ideas. Mrs Beresford is working with Dr Christie on providing some more in-depth information to those pupils who will be presenting to the rest of the school. We are having our voting day on Tuesday 21st June; two days before the main event. We also had presentations from our two mini business club groups who have been working hard with Mrs Hon on preparing their goods to sell in school. This week’s sale went very well ind...

Welcome To Our Website

Welcome to the Whitehill Junior School website. I hope that our site will not only give you a flavour of the ethos and expectations of our school, but will also highlight many of the amazing opportunities that the pupils at Whitehill will be offered in their four years with us.

These are very exciting times for everyone associated with Whitehill as we look to build upon its many previous successes. The school has a reputation for developing its pupils as ‘learners’ through the extensive range of activities  they experience in the classroom  coupled with our extra-curricular enrichment  programme. Education is all about the process rather than an end product and at Whitehill we aim to nourish and maintain that natural drive and curiosity whilst striving to help them achieve their true potential.

A successful working partnership between home and school is essential in order to support your child in their education. To this end, communication is a key factor in ensuring  your child has a successful journey. As well as this website, parents are able to receive latest updates via our Twitter feed and also regular newsletters. This, however, cannot replace the face to face contact and dialogue that is actively encouraged between pupils, staff and parents.

If you would like to visit the school we are all very proud of, and see our community in action, one of our pupil ambassadors would be delighted to give you a guided tour. Please approach the school office for further details.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. In the meantime, I look forward to welcoming you to our school in the near future.

Since we cannot know what is needed in the future we cannot teach it in advance. Schools need to turn out children who love learning so much they can learn whatever needs to be learnt.
