This place is at All Saints Junior School. All Saints is a special place to grow, with the widest opportunities on offer for every child and all staff members. It is a happy place to learn with a strong family feel.
Our school motto, ‘Let Your Light Shine’ is at the heart of all that we set out to achieve and we strive for all members of our community to shine bright. Our school values guide our everyday practice: Love, Joy, Perseverance, Excellence, Community, Respect and Equality.
We strive for excellence in all we do – in music, sport, and the arts and in academic standards.
In 2019 the school achieved standards significantly above the national and Hampshire averages, and will do again this coming year. We are proud of our academic success and strive for further excellence – however we firmly believe in educating the whole child. Our curriculum is broad and organised through ‘Learning Adventures’ which engage the children in a driving question with a real world outcome.
We are a Lead Hub School for the National Whole Education schools network who at their very heart have a commitment to a Whole Education to grow the Whole Child. We are also a Teaching Centre for Mathematics Mastery and are working with the Department for Education to host the Shanghai teachers in February.
The PGCE Primary programme runs from September to the beginning of July. The programme is organised, with a balance of school and university based training which will support you on your learning journey.
Whilst on the programme you will work in two different schools. In each placement you will work alongside experienced teachers and gradually assume more responsibility for planning and teaching as your training progresses. Throughout this process, you will be supported by school based mentors and a University tutor. Assessment is on-going and against the Teachers Standards.
The University based aspect of the programme comprises curriculum subjects and the wider professional role. We aim to develop the pedagogical and practical skills necessary to be an Outstanding teacher, as well enhancing subject knowledge.
