St Just Primary School

Head's Welcome

Thank you for showing an interest in St Just Primary School.

We are very proud of our school and aim to work in successful partnership with all our stakeholders.

We can promise you a team of dedicated teaching and support staff who are welcoming and approachable but above all, professional and highly motivated to deliver a top quality, creative curriculum for all our children.

We maintain an ‘open door’ policy and will always make someone available to speak with you if you have any concerns or anxieties.

We have just under 200 pupils aged between 4 years and 11 years, organised into 7 classes, one class for each year group. Our classes vary in number reflecting the admission of local children to their local school – a philosophy which the Governing Body uphold whilst ensuring there is no compromise to the effective education of the children currently attending our school.

We practise the philosophy that we are teaching the ‘whole child’ and therefore, although academic attainment is highly important, it is not everything. We provide an education which will develop every aspect of a child’s learning capability, preparing them for the practicalities of a modern and ever-changing world.

Children and staff at St Just are hard-working and respectful of each other but above all else, they are happy!

We look forward to welcoming you to visit our school.

Julie Larter, Headteacher
