At Jessie Younghusband School (JYS), we thread our school values – Aspire, Respect, Enjoy – throughout our curriculum. We believe that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. Through our teaching, we collectively create a stimulating environment which fosters excitement and enthusiasm for learning. We constantly strive to improve our provision for children at JYS and in doing so encourage everyone to aim high and try to achieve their full potential. High importance is also placed upon the children developing skills to reflect upon their learning, thus enabling them to make good progress in all areas of learning – academically, physically, socially and emotionally. Pupils gain high levels of confidence, have pride in their achievements and really enjoy their learning. We recognise that the personal development of children - spiritually, morally, socially and culturally (SMSC) - plays a significant role in their ability to learn, achieve and be happy individuals.
