Welcome to Sunnymede Junior School



Our School Vision

Our vision is that all our children leave our school equipped with the knowledge, skills and personal attributes to make them independent, well-rounded individuals and valued citizens of the future. We aspire for them to be reflective and confident, making wise and informed choices as they journey through life, making positive contributions in a global world.  Our ultimate goal is for every one of our children to hold their heads up high, respect themselves and be respected by others.

  Our Mission Statement

We provide a nurturing and stimulating environment where children appreciate the value of learning and discovery in all its forms. Through a broad and balanced curriculum, combined with high quality teaching, children have the opportunity to become successful learners, confident individuals and responsible citizens. As a junior school, we balance the promotion of children’s growing independence with mechanisms to support pupils appropriately with their learning and personal areas of need. We expect high standards of behaviour and attitudes to learning from all members of the school community.


We believe that children achieve best when supported at both home and school. As such, we encourage open and honest dialogue between parents and staff and urge parents to  support with learning at home, ensuring optimum intellectual, social, emotional and physical success.


It is important to us that our children feel safe, are listened to and feel proud to be part of our school. Mutual respect is integral to our ethos and all our children are valued as the individuals they are. We appreciate and value diversity and maintain an ambience of tolerance and respect for all cultures and beliefs.
