A Welcome from the Headteacher
Welcome to Flushdyke Junior and Infant school’s website. We hope you enjoy looking around our site and seeing what our school has to offer. Our school is smaller than average, consisting of four classes of mixed age groups. Through the hard work, dedication and commitment of our staff and governors we aim to provide an educational environment that excites, nurtures and challenges each child, enabling all children to flourish and achieve their best. At Flushdyke Junior and Infant School we aim to provide teaching and learning that is stimulating, challenging and tailored to the needs of each individual child. We encourage our pupils to be enquiring learners who are able to pursue their interests, while receiving a high standard of education. To achieve this, we offer a broad and balanced curriculum, both inside and outside the classroom. We are lucky at our school to have a large amount of outside learning and playing space, which is used for the maximum benefit of our children’s education. This includes three playgrounds, a natural pond with a large gazebo, our own woodland and a large playing field. We believe that parents and carers are vitally important in their child’s education and we hope that you will become fully involved in your child’s learning journey, in partnership with school. We look forward to working with you to develop your children’s learning as much as possible, whilst at Flushdyke School. We believe that it is important to create a secure, safe and caring environment in which children can develop to their potential. We encourage children to respect each other, to be truthful and honest, and to look after the school and its environment. Good pupil behaviour is achieved through mutual respect and trust and a positive partnership with parents. We are proud of our school and believe that we have something special to offer. If you are looking for a school for your child, please come and see us and take the opportunity to find out more. In the meantime, please browse through our website to get a flavour of our school.
