Ethos and Values






Our vision at FJS is to inspire children and their families to believe that, through determination and hard work, they can achieve their best.


In order to achieve our vision, we have the following mission statement:

The school community will enable our children, their families and all those who work at and with the school to develop the skills, confidence and attitude to be the best they can be in a changing world. We will provide an open and trusting environment where every member of the school community feels safe, included and valued.

We will be:

  • Competent, empowered learners who are resilient, motivated, curious, creative and determined, seizing the opportunities provided by a broad and stimulating curriculum

  • Self-aware and able to empathise and collaborate with others.

  • Reflective and focused on continuous improvement, able to achieve greater success by identifying, understanding and actioning the next steps in our learning and development.

  • Respectful, honest and accepting of each other regardless of differences.

  • Open-minded and keen to learn from others.

  • Encouraging the development of strong partnerships between home, school and the wider community.

We believe that when we have high expectations of ourselves and others, and strive to do our very best, we will achieve as confident learners, becoming successful individuals and responsible, caring citizens, ready for the next steps in our learning journey.
