Welcome to Flax Hill Junior Academy

Ofsted Report, November 2016

 We are a busy, thriving school committed to providing our children with a broad range of opportunities to learn, develop and shine.

Our school’s main aim is to create a happy, caring, secure environment in which our children can develop confidence, individuality and good learning habits. We help pupils develop lively, enquiring minds. We encourage them to speak thoughtfully and confidently and we teach them to work and play with care and consideration for others. Most of all, we want each child to feel they have helped to make our school a successful, happy place to be.

Lark hall and Flax Hill children in line

We pride ourselves on our children’s attitudes and achievements and we know these are due to a very close partnership between our school and your family. We have strong links with nearby Whittington Barracks and good links with local churches and businesses in the area.

We hope your child will feel happy at Flax Hill Junior Academy and will achieve his or her best. Our promise to you is that we will do our best for your child.

At Mercia Primary Academy Trust we aim to prepare our students to become good citizens of the future. Through our curriculum we teach pupils British values and how to celebrate diversity. We aim to raise their awareness of radicalisation and extremist views, whatever the source. We have adopted the principles and advice found in ‘Keeping Children Safe in education 2014’ and the 2011 ‘Prevent Strategy’. These are incorporated into our school policy on tackling extremism.

The Education Act states that parents are legally responsible for their child’s regular attendance at school. Good attendance is essential so that good academic achievement can be secured. Regular lateness is disruptive to your child’s education and well being. Please ensure your child is on the school premises by no later than 8:40am every school day.

Each week the class with the highest attendance will be acknowledged and will be rewarded with 5 minutes extra playtime.
